Nice job Betty!


Check out these beautiful pineapple pattern blocks resulting from a class on October 24th.

This is beautiful.

What a great day!
Fellow quilters from the Friendship Quilters group came together for a special cause - Quilts of Valor.  It was great working together with friends, having food and music and friendly chats. 

Special thanks to Janet L for planning this event and for all the work she did in preparing for this day; and special thanks to Patti Shores for allowing the group to sew together in the classroom at Shores Quilt Stop.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this special project.






Yet another quilt top completed for the Quilts of Valor project

An additional quilt was made, thanks to Carla W bringing her stash buckets with red and blue fabrics.  A pattern was found, fabrics were pulled from the buckets and shortly thereafter a quilt top is completed. 






Here the busy quilters are following up on their plan and getting quilts ready for the Quilts of Valor project.

Girly gym bags finished by Pose Foster and Shirley Bride in the class Week-ender Bag.  Shirley used the Hearty Good Wishes fabric line and Pose used the Mixology fabric line.  Good job, girls!

Congrats on a job well done Janice!

What an absolutely beautiful

Tennessee Waltz quilt completed by Nargiza I.

GREAT JOB!

Pattern Designer and Teacher, Sue Pritt from Sweet Season Quilts in upstate New York, teaches a class at Shores Quilt Stop.  Students learned how to applique and quilt as you go while completing a wall hanging.  Sue's many patterns are available for sale at Shores Quilt Stop.  Samples of several of her patterns can be viewed at Shores Quilt Stop for a limited period of time.  Please stop by and check them out; they are so nice!

Ruth W shows off her beautiful "Night Owl and Summer Moon"

projects completed at Shores Quilt Stop with

guest teacher, Sue Pritt.  Nice job Ruth!

The sewing machines were humming as Barbara Nichols provided students instruction on how to use their home sewing machine to do machine quilting.  Many tricks and tips were provided and participants left praising

the great job Barbara did in teaching them

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a beautiful display Deb Schildt had on hand for her wool class in April 2015.  Classes held each month with a new project made from wool.

Renee S busy pressing her fabrics needed during Deb Schildt's class in April 2015.

The stars were shining in the classroom in April 2015 once students completed their Carpenter Star class.  Great job ladies!

This beauty was completed by

Debbie G

and hand-quilted by a friend.  This is a result of Debbie's first ever  class making a quilt.  Job Well Done!

Wow!  Another beauty.  This one completed by Kristen.  This also is a result of her first ever class

making a quilt.

Great accomplishment and a wonderful quilt

 to be so proud of!

Joyce was interrupted in the process of making her quilt.  She is currently involved in a local community quilt working on a group quilt.  The star portion of the quilt is pieced and before you know it, Joyce will have a beautiful quilt displayed in her home.  Keep up the good work Joyce.

Debbie G also challenged herself to making a miniature Carpenter Star and has finished the piecing.  She plans to use this on a purse.  Nice job Debby!

Jelly Roll Class

 

What fun it was spending a few hours in the classroom to sew, sew, sew.  Just look at the array of color in the jelly roll quilts, which can be made from a jelly roll or from scrap 2 1/2" strips.

 

Even better yet, leaving with a completed quilt top.

 

Another Jelly Roll

quilt top.

 

Good Job ladies!

Christmas

2014

What a great day of fun!  4 holiday gift-giving projects were presented and participants went to work completing them. 

A special thanks to Patti for donating fabric and to all the ladies who volunteered their time to sew.  52 pillowcases are being donated to Grace Connection to help local individuals and families (homeless or otherwise).

GREAT JOB LADIES!

 

 

 

 

 

Way to go Pat!

I KNEW you could do it!

So proud of you.

 

Linda

 

 

Great job Linda

Oh Edna;  I see you back there.  This Bargello heart quilt was completed in a class offered by Patti.

 

JOB WELL DONE!

Buggy Barn Heart Crazies was a fun class.  Above is a bright and colorful completed project.  Nice job Traci T.

Traci T completed this large wall hanging after learning to use the 9 degree ruler (same ruler used to make a Spicy Spiral table runner).  The layout of colors are so beautiful on this.  Great job Traci!

This is the another finished product from Patti's T-shirt class.  Great job Renay C and how kind of you to donate your quilt to Memorial Hospital for their raffle.  Let's support the Cancer Society and purchase raffle tickets when we can.

Patti taught a class on how to make a T-shirt quilt.  Students came with their t-shirts and the cutting began.  When they arrived, each student had a general idea of what they might like to do, but after some discussion, ideas changed and the formation of their own creation began.  The above (quilt front with the t-shirts)  and below (quilt back - had to have some quilts blocks with the Terrible Towel)  pic is the quilt Cathy made for Chuck.  When she told him the pictures were going on the website, he asked that she make sure everyone knew the quilt was NOT for sale.  He is a very avid Steelers fan and is very happy with the quilt.  Hopefully some of the other students will be getting back to the store soon with pictures of their finished quilts.  We are anxious to see their creations.

Jane Townswick, well known appliqué artist, teacher, and quilter demonstrated techniques to a full classroom on Nov. 8th.   Eager students watched while Jane explained special knots and ways to secure your thread. The group observed Jane’s special appliquéd ways to make a complete unit before attaching it to a background. She instructed the group about types of thread, needles, and other tools to make a beautiful finished sample of handwork. The pattern that was used, “Flight of Fancy”, had several layered feathers, bias stem, and small multicolored leaves to practice skills            

 

Jane and her friend, Louise, traveled from Allentown for the day at the quilt shop. A delicious lunch was served and gave everyone energy for the finishing skills taught in the afternoon. At least one of books is available at the quilt shop. Many of her books are hard to find but Jane has given Betty permission to use her books and patterns for the appliqué group that meets once a month at Shores Quilt Stop. Hopefully some of the students will bring their finished project into the shop for “show and tell”.    

Hi Cathy, Finally I'm getting around to sending you the photo of my completed quilt from your class. The quilt was shipped off to it's new owner (the owner of the sheet metal company who my husband worked for) a couple of weeks ago. It sure was a "scrappy" quilt  right down to the backing which unintentionally had to be pieced out of light blue and dark blue fabric. I had booked studio time to machine quilt at Jude Seiker's patchwork garden and low and behold, forgot my well- matched backing fabric back in NJ!. I had nothing on hand at our PA home and no time to make a trip out to purchase new backing fabric so.....I made due with the blues and despite not having any blue in the top's fabrics, it worked! Needless to say the Carpenter's Star was well received and very appreciated by it's new owner. 

Once again, I really appreciated and enjoyed your class this past summer at Shore's Quilt Stop and I hope to be able to take additional classes with you in this upcoming year.

 

Piecefully,

 Cyndy Fitzpatrick

Carpenter Star Class of August 22nd and 28th

Carla, Tina, Cynthia and Cathy had totally different color palettes in mind when planning their Carpenter Star quilts.  Each one chose beautiful colors resulting in stunning quilt tops.  When borders are completed what a beautiful quilt each will have for many years.

 

Great Job ladies!

Congrats to Linda B. on the completion of her king size Braid-in-a-Day quilt.  Linda took this class earlier in the year and with much determination has now completed the project and has a beautiful quilt to show off.  Great Job Linda!

What a fun day!  Christmas in July?  Who would have guessed with the sweltering heat, but Christmas was in the air.  Holiday lights and holiday quilt projects creating the festive classroom environment.  Photo provided by Julie Larnard-Newbury.  Thanks so much!

With a classroom overflowing, Patti teaches the 5-week Railstar quilt class.  When I stopped by, students were busy yet full of enthusiasm about their project.  Kudos to Patti for taking on such a large class and to the students who have worked so well together.

Well, class instructor Mary Wells has out done herself once again.  Look at the beautiful grommet purses she taught participants to make in class on Wednesday, June 26th.  Job well done -  Mary and participants!

You will be absolutely intrigued with the geometric designs you can create from one fabric design.  Carla was amazed with her created
and pleasantly surprised with the her beautiful end results.  Great Job!

Cube-It class - February 27, 2013


Ginny made this beautiful 3-D appearance cube and you can too!  Another class to be scheduled in the next few months.  Check back if you're interested.  Job well Done!

These beautiful Chubby Charmer totes were made in the classroom on February 23, 2013.  Job well done ladies!

Patti had a special visitor stop by on "Chicken Day" (March 9, 2013).  You just never know who may show up at the local quilt shop.

Students busy in the classroom on Saturday, March 9th, working at completing the various chicken-related projects. 

Patti provided instruction in the classroom to a Monday Night quilt group.  Each of the ladies completed a Tahoe Tote and all very pleasantly surprised the project was not as difficult as thought to be and the bags were beautiful when done.  Watch out Vera Bradley!

Patti hosted members of the Friendship Quilters on Friday, March 8th to a lesson on making chickens.  As you can see, the hens were everywhere, each displaying their own personality.
