Did you make it to the Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Show to see us?

 What a nice show, nice guild & nice weather!

Here is our pattern corner,

our Christmas alley,

more Christmas,

little Dresden & quilt-as-you-go, BABY,

BOO, books & notions,

new “stuff”,

awesome cashier & DQW Sampler,

Wish I had this purple “Collection for a Cause Mill Book Series 1892” fabric.

We could have sold lots of kits…

Sometimes, the collections makes the quilt!

I hope you enjoyed our booth.

After much work, much wait & so much anticipation…

Dresden Quilt Workshop has finally arrived!

If you already have one or both of my little Dresden plate templates

Suzn+Quilts+Tiny+Dresden+Template                         Suzn+Quilts+MiniDresdenTemplate

(Tiny Dresden #216 & Mini Dresden #186)

you’re half way there.

Like all of my little Dresden plate patterns, the paper templates are included in the book, but the plastic templates make your cutting so much faster & more accurate.

I’m all about accuracy.

These are some of the 13 quilt patterns included in the book.

Every quilt in the book uses my Tiny Dresden template

and some of them also use my Mini Dresden template.

Dresden Quilt Workshop is available on my website now

and hopefully will be available at your local quilt shop soon!

If you’re like me and prefer to shop at your local quilt shop,

please give them my information so they can find

Dresden Quilt Workshop at their favorite distributor.

Get yours today!

#3 if you couldn’t guess has even more little Dresdens.

Reflections

 I loved using the new Morris collection, Earthly Paradise, by Barbara Brackman.

Remember them?

They were so pretty to work with!

I did the trimming in front of the TV…

Notice another cutlery tray?

I have several because I have several projects going at once.

I’m putting matching petals together here.

And of course, Betsy helped me to keep on task and untangled…

This is the quilt that I used all the Dr. Pepper circles on.

Heather tested this one for me.

I offered to help her glue the center circles at a guild meeting since I’m always in a bit of a time crunch to get everything ready for maket.

I usually give my testers the pre-cut freezer paper circles that I cut with the paper cutters.circlepapercutters

They’re so quick to cut and perfectly round each time!

It took us about an hour or so to glue all of the Tiny and Mini circles.

It goes quickly when you’re doing something else at the same time.

I think that’s one of the things that I love about these little Dresdens.

I can watch TV, talk on the phone or watch a quilt program while working and before I know it, I’m done!

Don’t let the circles scare you.

Apliquick Bars are a big help!

I showed you step-by-step how easy they are here.

The Apliquick Bars and circle cutters are available on my notions page on my website.

Reflections is available on my website too for $10.00 plus shipping.

Back tomorrow with #4!

Just keep sewing…

In case you can’t guess,

new pattern #2 also has little Dresden plates!

Spring Fling

Suzn+Quilts+Spring+Fling#242+Cover+WEB.jpg

The wings are a combination of Tiny & Mini Dresden petals.

Spring Fling was made using a layer cake and a bit of yardage of Pumpkin Pie.

Remember me showing you those fabrics here?

Using  a layer cake makes it easy to use a rainbow of fabrics without buying a lot of different yardages and having a lot left over.

I just pop in a movie and the time flies by!

The wings were fun to make.

I’ve been collecting old cutlery trays to keep my petals corralled.

It makes it easy to transport ALL OF THEM from my cutting table to the sewing machine and ironing board.

The antennas are really easy to create with baby rick rack.

I have fool-proof instructions for making each antenna perfect and I even give you instructions  on how to sew the buttons on with your sewing machine.

Loraine tested this one for me.

She got the entire top put together in about 2 days!

She is a speed demon!

It was her first experience with the Sulky 12 wt. thread.

I love the way it makes my applique “POP!”.

She probably has it quilted by now on her new long arm machine.

I hope you’re enjoying the show of my new patterns.

Spring Fling is available on my website for $10.00 plus shipping.

Back tomorrow with #3.

Just keep sewing…
