Daisy Pincushion and the rest of the quilts

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! I did!

Me and Heather finished the matching pincushions we worked on between projects. They are so adorable and pretty big, too. The pincushion is around 6″X 3″. Heather picked the colors so the pincushion looks like a giant daisy!

The pattern for “Wild Flower Pincushion” can be found in “Bags, Pillows & Pincushions” Magazine:


I also did some Black Friday shopping. I got my first Honey buns from Greenfairyquilts.com These are my first honey buns. I don’t know what I am doing with them yet. They might be good for a mini quilt since they are 1,5 ”.


I also visited my local quilt shop “Happy Sewing Room” and got these fat quarters. The red one is their Christmas present.


Here are the rest of the Eastern PA Shop-hop tour. The quilt below is the sample made by “Endless Mountains Quiltworks”. This was a very nice shop and I like their quilt, but it was the fardest for us to go to. We were lucky and had a driver that day. Thank you Scot for driving me and Heather to the shops!
Here is the quilt at “118fabrics” shop. I like the border of the quilt.
Here is the ” J&B Craft Supplies & Fabric” Store in Nescopeck, PA.

And the last shop we visited was “Quilting in the Valley”. Their quilt is pretty, too.
I hope I got all the shops and matching quilts right! 🙂 Me and Heather had fun during the shop hop and got a lot of fabrics for couple of projects! 😉

I also received my 5” squares from the I spy swap I was in, but I will have to show you next time!

Until then, Happy sewing!!!

Quilt Shops Hopping and Quilting!

Here is an update on out Eastern PA Shop-hopping.

This is the quilt at “Quilter’s Pallet” in Fleetwood, made out of the basket blocks. The quilter used wool for the appliqué flowers. It’s one of my favorite.

This is “Happy Sewing Room” quilt. I am a little bias when I say, this is one of my favorite quilt since I quilted it and my mother in law designed and piece the quilt. It was the second quilt I quilted on my New Joy Gold Standard frame.
Here is a close up of the quilt on the frame:

I think the leave design went perfect with the baskets!

This is “Allentown Sewing” quilt:
This hand quilted quilt was a door prize, but either of us, me or Heather didn’t win it.
The quilt was displayed at ”Wooden Bridge” and bellow is their sample that was hand quilted also.
I have few more quilt shops to show you! Till then………..Happy sewing!

Eastern Pennsylvania Shop Hop ’09- First Day

Yesterday was a fun day of shop hopping! Me and my friend Heather went to four shops. During shop hop you can purchase a passport and then visit all the participating shops to get stamped and qualify for big prizes. Each shop sells a block and each shop puts it together differently. You are able to purchase a block at each shop. We decided not to buy the blocks and instead shoped other fabrics.

First we went to Easton to the “At Piece Quiltery”. I forgot to take picture of their shop hop quilt. I bought a special fabric for a Christmas gift, I hope when is done the recipient will like it!

After that we were on the way to Stroudsburg, they are two shops there. Below is the “American Ribbon” shop hop sample.
Below is “Pocono Sew & Vac” quilt.
Then we were on the way to Effort to visit “Country Quiltery”.
We thought we would have a hard time finding that store since the GPS couldn’t find the address, but we found it easily! They served local apple cider outside the shop. I took a picture of Heather as she was taking a cup.
We had fun at all shops, we bought a lot of pretty fabrics! Here is a part of my loot! 🙂
Now, I am going to get busy sewing! Happy sewing to you, too!
