Other finished projects

I want to show you what some of the others finished up. You'll see why I feel like I could use some sewing lessons!!

This is Debbie's work! She does the most incredible appliqué!! LeAnn is helping her hold it up for my picture!

And I took a photo of a row from a project she's doing based on a Lori Smith design:

Here's Peggy's finished top from the swap we did last year:

Isn't the fabric fabulous??!!

I love this little one that Micki made. Simple but so striking!

Micki has been working on this adorable top. I love the truck!!

This is the Cotton Club quilt that Terri made. I had mine done a couple of years ago, which is a first-- me finishing before Terri!! Aren't the fabrics gorgeous??

This is another top that Terri made using a layer cake. Love it!!

My friend Bonnie made this pin cushion for Debbie and I just loved it. It might've come home with me except that I know Debbie would've missed it. So does anyone have the pattern?? Bonnie said she made it from a book but she couldn't remember which one. I'd really appreciate knowing which book it came from. You let me know and I'll send you a PRIZE!!!vbg

Using the live option on my phone camera makes the guy's head bob up and down!! Too funny!!

I am heading back home today. Happy to see my dh who puts up with my frequent jaunts to Wisconsin!! Check out this sunset over Lake Delavan, where we usually go for fish fry on Friday night

Oh and a trip to Wisconsin wouldn't be complete without a picture of the typical scenery!! I love it!!


  1. I absolutely love living in Northern Michigan but there are times I really miss the "flatlands" of Wisconsin ... it's such a beautiful state! Looks like a VERY productive weekend and visit with friends ... travel safe and thanks for the "eye candy" ;-) Linda

  2. What absolutely lovely quilts--that applique is amazing!! hugs, julierose

  3. So much to love here--wonderful quilts, an interesting bird, and beautiful scenery.
    Welcome home. : )

  4. Wow--so many wonderful and inspiring projects! I plan to do the Austin Bluebird Sampler some day and have the Tree Farm pattern on order. I know I've seen that bird around somewhere--Primitive Quilts, maybe? If I spot it, I'll let you know!

  5. Wow, that is a busy group. Glad you had fun. The quilts are lovely. I don't know about the pin cushion but I suspect it is a Jan Patek or Primitive Quilts and Projects design. If you ask Cyndi at the Busy Thimble blog, she will most likely know.

  6. I believe the bird pattern is one featured in Summer Spirits Threads by Need'l Love. These books usually have a variety of pincushions, quilts and wooly items. I believe your friend added the strawberry from another one of the books. These books are put out by Rene Nanneman of Need'l Love Company.

    She is a super sweet lady and I have ordered from her in the past. She also has a website. Amazon may also carry the book. Let me know if you can't locate a copy and I will work something out.
