Calypso Swing Fabric Quilt & more

Mother daughter quilting duo Kim & Jennifer have been quilting up a storm. I love the fabric in Kim's latest quilt, Calypso Swing from Free Spirit. I've got to find some!

Used the Daisy Swirl panto.
Jennifer made a quilt for her boyfriend. I'l have to see if I can get a picture of the whole quilt form her. She mixed a few colors with the black & gray strips,perfect.
Last day in Nanaland for me. Well at least until closer to Littlest Mister's arrival. Soaking up all the hugs I can until next time.................One tired Nana Sharon

CIQ Quilt Show Pictures

I know I promised I'd post some pictures of the quilt show for you. I had to make an unexpected trip to CA. Joanna & Little Mister both got the flu. Not good when you are 8 1/2 months pregnant. Just doing a little cooking & keeping Little Mister busy so Joanna can rest.

Here goes.

I'll be back soon! Promise!..................Nana Sharon

American Hero Quilts & A Play

A couple of weeks ago Cindy, Wilma & I went to Vashon Island & delivered quilts to American Hero Quilts. We also had the priveledge of packing up quilts that will be sent to Afghanistan to the wounded warriors at Bagram.

Each quilt has it's picture taken & a card from AHQ is attached before it is packed in a box. We processed 101 quilts! Amazing!

Here are a few pictures. The bags of quilts we brought with us. Most made by the Stanwood-Camano Hero Quilters.
Cindy & Wilma had the "ladder" detail.
I was the packer.
Here are just a few of the quilts from that day.

Do you have any plans this coming weekend? Our Hero Quilt sew day is on Saturday at the Stanwood Senior Center from 10-3:30 if you'd care to join us. Always fun & good food!

Also there is a play about American Hero Quilts.
Here's what the Sequim Gazette had to say about the play. Wilma was fortunate & saw the play on Sunday. Uniformed soldiers read some of the letters that American Hero Quilts gets from soldiers & their families. I think you might need a tissue for that!

Have a great week. I still have pictures from the CIQ Quilt Show to post. Be sure & check back!

27 days & counting............Nana/Quilter Sharon

Camano Island Quilters "25 Years of Quilting"

I hope you have time today or tomorrow to come to Stanwood & visit the Camano Island Quilter's quilt show. The charter members of the group are the featured artists this year.

Stanwood Middle School(just down the street from the post office) is where you can see all of the lovely creations created by the guild members over the past two years. We'll be there from 10-5 both days.

Here are a couple of customer quilts you can take a closer look at if you come! First up is Wilma's soccer girl quilt. Love the colors & that it shows soccer girls!
This is Cheryl's quilt that she made for a nephew. He actually designed the quilt! Very impressive!
Pat appliqued this darling tablerunner. It has button embellishments now. She had to take a break from setting up yesterday to finish sewing the binding on!
The Stanwood-Camano Hero Quilters will have a display & cookbooks for sale. Over The Rainbow & Quilter's Roost are a couple of the vendors you will see.

I worked like crazy this week to get my own quilts done. I'll take pictures today & post again tonight.

I'm on the countdown again. Hooray! This time we will be welcoming(keep your fingers crosseed) Little Mister 2 during my visit.
32 days & counting................Quilter/Nana Sharon
