Karen's Star Quilt



This fabulous giant quilt belongs to Karen. 



Karen made the first star in this quilt in the "Jane's Star" class here at Quilt Vine. She made one and couldn't stop. 



This King-sized quilt is for her bed. 

When she gave it to me she just said, Do something modern." 


The quilting in the border is something I have never done in a border before. I like it. Guess I will have to do that again.



This quilt also looks really great from the back.

Show--n-Tell

I just love it when our friends bring in their finished projects to share with us.


This is Ester's block from the book  "Best Ever Applique Sampler" by Piece O Cake.



Colette had to join in  the fun and make an Elephant Quilt.


Ellen, a relative of Colette's, was visiting from Ireland. Colette just had to get her quilting. Here is her Elephant quilt. She must have used what Colette had leftover. Notice that her Elephant is a little different from Colette's, it has a heart.


Lucille's Log Cabin Quilt. 
See all of those beautiful Kaffe Fassett fabrics that she got at Quilt Vine.


Marlyne's Tiny Treasures.



 Marlyne's paper pieced table runner



 Maylyne's place mats



Many of you may recognize this pattern used here. Chris originally made Chris' Fishes' with this pattern. Chris also taught it as a class here. So we have seen many many quilts  made with this pattern. Well, here is the latest one. Mary made this one with the  Snow Day Fabric.



Lynn's Dot Party Quilt that she made in class here.



Another Lola quilt by Mary.
I love how she used "Sweet Lady Jane" by Jane Sassaman.



 Charlotte's Heart to Heart Quilt.

Art Class


This summer Mr Crist, an art teacher from my daughter's high school, held art classes for some of his advanced students in one of our classrooms at Quilt Vine.

 Brad is going to college this fall and is majoring in art.

 Faith will be a senior in high school this year.

Bailey is going to college this fall and is majoring in graphic design.

I enjoyed getting to see their work this summer.
