Long time... No Design Wall Monday....

It is high time to show off the latest to come off the Longarm!
"Quilted from My Heart"
Mary Ellen Carter and Lynn designed and made this quilt, 
Tammi quilted it on the APQS and Mary C gets to bind it.
Much thanks to Jerry, Lynn's husband for finding the fabric, 
while they were in Portland, at Fabric Depot.
Here are a few close-ups!

Please leave a comment and remember Lynn in your prayers 
as she goes to Portland next week for the procedure on her heart.

DESIGN Wall Monday- January 6, 2014

It's been a while since there has been anything new on the WALLS at Thread & Bolts.
Lynn's Daughter has been good to send pictures with her phone this past week.
So Mary could post them here and link-up to the Design Wall Monday.
 Lynn started these BATIK blocks for another Bouquet of Friendship.
She is trying to get some of her started projects off the UFO list.
Here they are on the WALL to arrange the 25 in the center. She left them up there to look at while she and Tammy finished June's Fairy quilt in the Longarm. Tammy is learnign how to use the Longarm since her mother has been trying to figure out why she is so weak and can't do everything she was doing.

Tammy is making this cute baby Minnie and Mickey quilt for a friend.
The hearts really add a lot to the yellow corners.
The center panel is a Neckerchief. 
But first this OWL baby quilt has to be quilted...

Lynn and Tammy were racing to see how fast they could sew up these cute
Owl baby quilts way back HERE.

Design Wall Monday- September 23, 2013

 Tammy  and I decided to make two baby quilts, with similar fabrics and race, LOL
Tammy's will have a different Kicker border and more PINK.
Guess who WON??
This is the Quilts for Kids design.  
Easy with a 4-Patch and a Focus Square. 
The fabric has Owls and Butterflies on it--you have to look close.

Quilts have flown out the door before Mary C could get pictures.  
Thankfully Tammy took a few pictures that now can be BLOGGED.
 Julie H from Mesa picked up a few quilts last week.
Before Quilting
After Quilting and Close up quilting
The quilting brings the Quilt to LIFE!
This is one Mesa Julie calls her $20 Walmart Quilt.
And this Scrappy Blue Quilt used a bunch of her Blue stash of fabrics.
 The go to Quilt Pattern is the Feather Ramble.

 While she was here, she gave me a Cherished Teddies frame.
I got a little emotional.  Love those Teddy Bears!

Design Wall Monday- September 16, 2013

It's been a while since Thread and Bolts Design Wall has changed.  
The Farmer's Wife has come down it's together as much as possible until the extra blocks get sewn. 
The Bear Need Homes too blocks are coming together so they can go on the BIG Wall Soon.  
(You may have seen a sneak peek of them on The Happy Birthday post HERE)
 This is a version of THIS QUILT made with a multi-BLUE scrap basket. 
Pattern thanks to Evelyn Sloppy's Log Cabin Fever Book.
And on the other WALL is a fun Buggy Barn Hearts Quilt.
Don't you just love the mix of these 27 Fat Quarters in Red, Gold and Black? 
Thinking of a Piano Key Border to finish the borders.

Birthday Goodies

At Quilt Guild there was a Birthday Bag for Me from my Secret Pal.  All of this stuff was in the bag.
4 half yards of 30's fabric and a "Playtime" Charm Pack, two TY Bears 
(one named Orion and one named Bearkhart) 
and Hershey's Chocolate!  

Tammy has been coming out a lot and helping with the stack of Quilts for customers.

This one is the latest one to come off the Longarm.
 And a Close-up of the Log Cabin Squares.

September 11, 2013

Today is Lynn's Birthday!!!
She is happy to claim the day as a Day 
something "GOOD" happened!

It's been way too long since Mary C has been here and much too long since she has posted on the BLOG!
I thought it would be fun to SURPRISE HER!  
On Tuesday, Mary C brought out Birthday gifts!
The newest Pattern book by Jennifer Chiaverini and a matching tote bag for the Loyal Union Sampler.
Also a Pink spool pin doily.
 Lynn likes her new Cherished Teddies bear...close-up shown below.
 Here is the fabrics we had fun playing with for possible colors of her Loyal Union Sampler.
Civil War-ish fabrics. Not her normal Blues...
So, what do you think??

Leave your comments here and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

M&M Quilters- May 2013

These pictures are from the Wednesday Group. Patty and Julie H from Mesa are making progress on their Blocks.

Patty is working on the A & C with Pinwheel Frames Block of the Month
She's half way done with her 12" blocks.  

Julie H is making "The Romance Continues" Block of Month with her favorite color scheme.

Julie H also left another quilt to be quilted.  Isn't it a pretty one??
It was fun to choose a backing and quilt pattern and thread for this one. 
There were so many shades of the goldish brown/tan in the Thread boxes.
