We were lucky enough to have them open their doors to our little group of girls last Friday -all day long! The room we were in was perfect for us to sew, visit and have lunch together in.
The whole store is dressed up wonderfully. The ceilings are tall enough for lots of display quilts and they have a great selection of fabric, notions and goodies.
This little quilt caught my eye . It is really sweet. I could have browsed for hours.
We met the owner, manager and lots of the girls (Hi Cathy) that work at Quilted Works. They really made us feel at home.
This is just a few of us having fun working together on Lori's "Eat Cake" project. You can see Sherri in green, Dawn's back in red, Rae Ann in white, my 2 sisters Michelle and Polly standing, and Lori at the far end of the tables. I hate to brag, but everyone should be jealous. It was so much fun. How often do you get to have fun sewing time with your best girls and sisters!?
Lori gave us a class on making her fabulous applique using her layering technique. Lori is an amazing teacher. She was so gracious to take time from her own sewing to help us.Then we had a visit by a huge star! Glenna of Hollyhock Quilts (with purse). Glenna and I go back years before we had blogs. But it was the first time we met in person. I was thrilled as were all the girls. Left to right Sherri, Glenna, Dawn, Rae Ann and Nedra (seated). Words can't describe the fun time. But you can see it in the excited faces.
We played a little show-n-tell. Glenna showed us her latest project. Isn't this block sweet. I love the yellow leaves. (Note to self: make yellow leaves in my next project.) Glenna is having a break from her designing but I hope to have her creating something fun for us soon.
Lori brings beauty with her where ever she travels. I have to just admire everything she does. Isn't her bottle cover sweet!
Lori is showing us some of her blocks here. My stems never look like that!
Lori worked on these baskets while she was retreating with us. Aren't they great. Lori always says "scrappy is happy". I agree!
Before we left we had a moment to pose in front of the quilts on display in the classroom at Quilted Works. Notice Nedra's quilt on the left.
