November Fat Stacks

Here are some of the beautiful quilts from our Fat Stacks meeting last Wednesday!

We started with Gina’s wonky log cabin baby quilt.  Gina is going to have a little girl in April.  Yay!!

Here’s her original design using “Winged.”

Sue’s Feathers from Allison Glass.  We loved her background.

Kay’s Windmills.  We loved her block centers.

Carole’s flying geese.  There’s some big stitch hand quilting happening here too.

Use a primitive pattern with Amy Butler’s “Glow” and this is the result.  Yay Carole!  (more geese!)

Diana’s Science Fair.  She used Cotton + Steel and we loved the swirls!

Tillie’s Science Fair.  It’s wonderful Tillie; your color choices are so great!  I teach Science Fair as a precision piecing class.  There’s a new class on the schedule; come join us.

Beverly’s Science Fair.  Beverly wasn’t able to be with us but we took a picture of her quilt!!

Ginny’s Science Fair.  Ginny couldn’t be there either but that didn’t stop us from showing her beautiful top.  Ginny used Essex flax for her background.

Here’s Joan’s original design flying geese.  Far far away…  🙂

Joan’s Treelicious quilt.  Did I mention that I taught her how to applique??

Here’s my Serendipity Sampler…almost finished.  My classes are starting to finish their tops; look for them on the blog.  I’m starting a new class on the second Monday in January.   This is a great beginner hand applique block of the month.  Contact me if you are interested.

Here’s the infamous bubble quilt…without the ruffle!  Ha!!   I did a demo on how to construct this great baby quilt.  There were a few disparaging remarks but it scored high marks in our baby focus group!  Laurie’s comment was the best:  “awkwardly cute!”

What would a bubble quilt be without Minkie from The Little General on the back??  We had a lot of fun with this.  If you want to make one…and I know you do…Awaiting Ada has a really good tutorial on her blog.

We had a really fun morning.  If you are interested in joining this talented group just contact Gina at The Little General.  She will take good care of you!

Finally, The Little General is having an Open Sew at The Barn in Reynolda Village on Monday, November 17 from 9:00 until 3:00.  The cost is $25.  Bring a project and come sew with us!  Gina Allen and I will be doing one of our whiz-bang tutorials about 10:30 so it should be a big time.  The Barn is a great space with lots of room and we are excited!

Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for reading my blog!
