Thanks for stopping by!
|Vicki at 2 Bags Full is again hosting the Grow Your Blog party!|
Be sure to hop over to her site HERE for links to hundreds of great blogs.
If you are new to my blog, I'm Karen and I live in Minnesota where we need lots of quilts----perfect for me because I like to make them!
I started my blog as an aid for a group I have at Colorz Quilt Shop.
Each year the Stitch Therapy group work on a project together. It is so inspiring to see how many versions there can be to one pattern!
Some of our past projects include:
|This is the quilt that started it all!|
(Sadly--it's not quilted yet...)
|I made the quilt as a model for the quilt shop--it turned into a class and the class turned into the Stitch Therapy group!|
|I stitched a second version in Redwork during the class.|
|At least this one is quilted.|
|I had already made Lori Holt's Apron Club, so this was our second project.|
|The quilt was made before Lori began designing fabric for Riley Blake. |
My label is dated 2008, but I may have pieced it before that.
|One year we made lots of small projects from The Green Book.|
|Another combination of applique and embroidery: Memory Bouquet from the Kansas City Star book Star Quilts II|
I'm not sure of the year we did this one.
Some of the Stitcher's did their versions in all applique.
I thought adding the dog-tooth border was kind of fun.
|The Wish Quilt.|
This pattern was first published in an Australian magazine, which is when I made my version.
I started my blog so I could post updates for my class to help create this quilt-- now a free pattern from Bronwyn Hayes (Red Brolly).
|I hate working the satin stitch, so I used colored pencils (and occasionally markers) to fill in those areas.|
|I also used crystals instead of French Knots.|
|Last year we did Simply Red by Kathy Schmitz.|
This is Brenda's beautiful blue version.
I'm not sure if I've forgotten a project or two,
but I can't wait to start Sophie's Garden, our 2015 project.
Thanks again for stopping in--come back soon--there's lots more going on!
