Hi from Cold, Snowy Wisconsin!

It's cold out tonight - the perfect night for staying in the sewing room and pretending it's not winter!

Last night was the first meeting of Miss Rosie's Snob Club at my local quilt shop.  We will be using only patterns from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.  I love her patterns - my most recent was this Schnibble quilt -

This quilt is about 32" square and made from a Layer Cake of Sandy Gervais fabric.  It was my first Layer Cake purchase, but won't be my last!  With the Layer Cake and a couple fat quarters, I had enough fabric to make the larger lap-size of this quilt.  This wall hanging will be a Christmas gift for my guild secret pal.

I'm really looking forward to our Miss Rosie's Club.  Our first project is a contest to make a chicken pincushion from the Pollo Loco pattern.  Prizes will be awarded for the most original, so our minds were spinning - maybe an elegant chicken made with satins, a retro chicken, a chicken with tattoos, a chicken with an antique brooch?   I need to dig through my stash of treasures and see what I can come up with.

Keep warm!

  1. Sounds like such a fun club to be in! My favorite shop is closing otherwise I'd mention something like this.
