Things are starting to get back to a comfortable “normal” for me…not rushing to go here, there…do this…have to do that…So here are some of the things that have been going on…

Our WI Sit & Sew group…(we are working on a better name) Had our first of nine get togethers this year…Here are the show & shares….If I know the sources I will give them..if not..I’m sorry in advance.

Judy shared two of her quilts she made for her grandchildren…
Vickie comes from us all the way from Madison…she shared her finished  quilt and fabrics, this quilt/pattern is from years back…so I do not know if it is still available but if you click on Sandy’s name her site will come up…Jean shared two Heart trivets for Valentines Day…Kay shared two projects…a table runner kit was from Primitive Gatherings…Pattern is in a Kim Diehl book.I managed to finish this little binding on one of my class samples…Squash Blossom quilted my Karen Miller from Red Bird Co.   Karen quilts on her domestic sit down machine and is starting to teach professionally.Then I saved the best for last…

Remember the Wooly Block Adventure??? This was our block….remember???  Can still be purchased HEREI wish you could see this in person…We have also picked this as our WINNER for our Primitive Gatherings Shop…Kathy Decker from Fond du Lac WI…

This is the corner you cannot see behind her…Just STUNNING!!! I was hoping she would leave it here but…somehow she remembered it was up on my design wall..darn it!!!

She has used my black MODA FLANNELS , we have just received a new shipment…look for color…blackbird….The MODA flannels are the best look at how that quilting shows up!! They are super soft and by FAR the best out there!!!..thank you Kathy and thank you MODA for giving us such great fabrics!!!

Here are a few more close ups..Kathy has done all the stitching and the quilting…she has taken some classes from my famous quilter..Linda Hrcka..aka  Kathy said she loves Linda’s curved rulers…they helped her get this quilt to look amazing!!!  We think Kathy should win the Grand Prize Wooly Block Adventure…If and I hope there is one given!!!

Hope you enjoyed WI Sit and Sew Day!!

    Thank you for sharing the show n tell! All the projects are beautiful and it looks like everyone had a fabulous time. I would love the pattern/kit for the Christmas ornaments. I didn’t understand what you meant by clicking on Sandy’s name. Do you have any more information on this? Thanks

      Deb, I have he same question. Vickie made the quilt and Sandy must be the pattern designer. But more information is needed to figure out the designer’s complete name and pattern name for a query about availability. Perhaps Vickie will read this and help us. I think it is lovely!

        Hi Deb & Camille,
        The name of the quilt pattern is “It’s Ornamental” by Sandy Gervais of Pieces from my Heart, copyright 2005. It was made using a fat quarter bundle of her Cold Winter Noses line by Moda (which was printed sometime ago). It was fun and easy to put together–in a kind of Buggy Barn fashion if you’re familiar with that technique. Hope this helps!

    Is Kathy’s quilt a published pattern or did she make it up herself? It is stunning! I would love to make one.

    Kathy’s woolly block quilt shows a lot of beautiful work! Love the Sunflowers and Woolie Lambs. Vickies’ ornament quilt is cute too! Looks like everyone had a great time.

    What a great quilt show! Loved them all. Is there a pattern for the beautiful wool and black flannel quilt? The wool pictures are darling. Gorgeous! Beautiful job ladies.

    I love all the wooly block adventure blocks. Just discovered them last month so I am way too late to the party. Someone should put them all together in a book and sell! I would buy!

    everyones projects are lovely but I have to say Kathy’s is indeed my favorite… I do have the “grateful” block from PG-WI, however I’m curious about the “wooly block adventure” you mentioned, did I miss something or was it a WI shop thing? I’d love to purchase a pattern for the entire quilt if it’s available 🙂 Way to Go Kathy Decker!!!

      The wooly block adventure is done by the same people who organize the Row by Row . It ran from Oct. to Dec. and participating shops gave out free patterns and sold kits. However, this year you could get all the patterns for free if you checked the site because every couple of days they featured two different shops and for those days the pattern was free. I believe now they are available for sale through the individual shops. There might still be a list on the website, just type in Wooly Block Adventure 2017. Kathy added a lot of her own designs on her quilt so those would not be available, just the blocks.

        Claire, thanks for your lovely response with all of the information and I’ll be looking for the 2018 wooly row by row this year!

    Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a
    great article… but what can I say… I put things off
    a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.
