Southern California Quilters Run @ Temecula Quilt Co.

Yes, It's the So. Cali Quilters Run time!
Of course my buddy Lisa and I went to our annual shop hop in Temecula, CA.

We went to one of our favorite store The Temecula Quilt Co.


This sweet little purse pattern is this year's giveaway pattern.
Isn't it lovely?


They always display tons of beautiful quilt samples.


Here's a cute table toppers for every season.


And of course, a wonderful Cheri Saffiote-Payne's quilt!


These bags are this year's So. Cali Quilters run raffle prizes from TQ Co.
I'll be crossing my fingers hoping to win! P-l-e-e-a-a-s-s-e-e...


Every corner of this shop is full of inspirations.


Gorgeous quilts display.


Don't seems like many people in? Nooooo, it was actually full of people.
I got quite a nice surprise too, I saw Linda from the Jo Morton's class that I took this January. :-)
BTW, she told me that she will be attending The Primitive of Midwest this year! I wish I could go with her!!!! :-)



Very beautiful Civil War repro star quilt by Temecula Quilt Co.


This table has lots of lovely little fabric packs and the shop's original pattern booklet that goes with them.



Another gorgeous quilt.


Beautiful fabric bolts with a sample quilt.


Well, here's my hubby's DAMAGE.
as you see he got the damage alright, Hun? *LOL*
(one of the little fabric roll is actually Lisa's damage. *LOL* It's a gift from her.... Thanks, Lisa!!)

Southern California Quilters Run @ Quilter's Coop

Here's some pictures from Quilter's Coop in Temecula, CA.
My buddy Lisa and I often shop hop between this shop and Temecula Quilt Co.
This shop carries many variety of fabrics include our favorite, Reproduction fabrics.


I fell in love with this quilt at first sight.
And why not it's from one of my favorite books "Gone to Texas" !!!
They made a very nice kit which cost $75. ( it's 58-1/2" x 79-3/4")
It was very tempting but since I already have tons of fabrics in my closet I shuts my eyes and walked away.


I also love this mini quilt. The colors are right in my comfort spot.



Also this one. Isn't it lovely?
This shop carries very nice quilt kits also.

The American School Girl Club


I am officially in Kathleen Tracy's The American school girl club!

I received the first installment of this club's pattern the other day and Boy, I'm very thrilled.

I also found out my dear blog friend, Merumo is in this club!

She updated her blog and it's full of Kathleen's things, Be sure to check it out.
:-)



*****************



Kathleen Tracy さんのDoll Quiltクラブに加入しました。
今月から6ヶ月間、一月ごとにミニキルトのパターンが送られてきます。さ、どんな布を使おうかな~。

ところで、このクラブに私が仲良くしていただいてるお友達のMerumoさんも加入されています。彼女のブログで毎回、目の保養をさせてもらってるのですが、今回もKatheenさんの本からのパターンでバスケットのブロックを作ってらっしゃって目がハートになってしまいました。
ものすご~く可愛いいので、ついつい私も作りたくなっちゃいました。(が、今は無理〜。。。涙) 

My goodies @ The Fat Quarters quilt shop

I made another blog that shows some of my goodies on sale at my local quilt shop, The Fat Quarters.

From Jo Morton LW club

I had a Jo's little women club meeting at my LQS the other day.
Here's a recap from the show and tell we had at our meeting.





This is our instructor Kathy's Keystone Medallion quilt. She used Jo's Indigo Berries line plus some of Jo's good old lines. I think this quilt is divine.







Also this mini quilt is Kathy's. It's Jo's club last quilt called Sisters quilt.







Here's a close-up. I love the embroidery of little women.








Kathy is showing us some beautiful quilts hanging in our classroom.
I believe this lovely mustard color Irish chain beauty was made by Julie.
The picture does not show the good color contrast of this quilt but it's very beautiful.







Next meeting will be the last gathering for our Jo's Little women club. We have really enjoyed our monthly meeting, so Michelle ( the owner ) and Kathy will continue to have a monthly meeting. Yay!!
The monthly meeting will continue as the " Antique Repro quilts" club till Jo Morton's next club start.

The quilt pictured above will be the one we'll be making for your next meeting.
It's Jo Morton's "Twinkle Twinkle" from the June issue of American Patchwork & quilting Magazine.





Here's some more beautiful quilts.

This one is made by Kathy, Machine quilted by the master longarm quilter Susan Gylling.






more beauty,




and more!

今月のJo Mortonクラブの模様です。

今回はKeystone Medallionキルト。 写真は講師のKathyのものです。
JoさんのIndigo Berriesのラインと彼女の他のラインの布を組み合わせてあって、とても素敵でした。

そして、次回予定のSisters Quilt。ミニキルトです。
このメダリオンの刺繍の部分はJoさんのLittle Women(邦題「若草物語」)のプリント布を使ってます。
よくみると、ほらちゃんとジョー、メグ、ベス、エイミーが載ってるでしょ?

Joさんのクラブは毎年6ヶ月間だけの限定なのですが、私達はこの月一のミーティングを楽しみにしているのでオーナーのミシェルと講師のキャシーの好意により続行される事になりました。
来年のJoさんのLittle Women Clubの期間が来るまでは「Reproキルト」のクラブとなります。

あぁ、うれし~いぃぃぃ

というのも、↑の写真の数々を見ていただくとお分かりになられると思うのですが、なんてったって目の保養になるキルトの数々を毎回見る事が出来ますからね。

「やる気」をもらいにいってるようなものです、私は。(笑)

次回でJoさんのクラブは今年分が終わりますが、既にその後に作るキルトの見本が出来てきてました。
Kathy作の、これまたJoさんのキルト。今年の6月号のAmerican Patchwork & Quiltingに掲載されたキルトです。 (写真↑赤白青の星条旗カラーやつです。)

来月のクラスは、多くの人がバケーションの為に時間の都合がつかないので、7月の下旬予定です。

Wool project

This is my latest project.
I was tickle to do some wool applique and here it is.




I picked the pattern out of Maggie Bonanomi's book.
The original pattern is a sewing roll but I made something a little different.



Speaking about wool applique, Maggie suggest applique using Coats and Clarks #54A thread in this book.

Well, I don't have Coats and Clarks #54A thread, so I used some of my favorite YLI quilting thread. I use this thread on all my wool applique projects. ( and It's the best for quilting, of course!)




********************************


ここ数日、ウールのアップリケの作品に時間を費やしています。と、いうのも、ずーっとピーシング作業ばかりでしたし、キルトもReproものばっかりだったので、お得意のPrimitive分野をやりたい気持ちでいっぱいだったのですよ。

と、いうことで、これがそのウールプロジェクト。

ここに載せてる本からの抜粋ですが、これは元々はSewing Roll、なところをアップリケの図案だけ取り入れて違ったものを作っています。


ウールアップリケ用の糸なのですが、皆さんそれぞれに好んで使ってる糸がありますよね? 
私の場合は、このYLIってところのキルティング用の糸です。キルティングには勿論、なのですが、ウールのアップリケの時にもこの糸を使っています。
ちなみに、この本の著者のMaggieさんはCoats & Clarksの54Aを使われてあるそうです。
