Meet Carolyn on the left and her daughter, Lisa on the right!
A couple of years ago they came to another workshop week in another town and we had such a great time, I was so happy to see them make the trek to Champaign, IL for another round of quilt quilt quilt til you wilt wilt wilt!
Carolyn lives in Arkansas, while her daughter lives in Missouri, so it was a driving road trip for them and we had the best time.
If you remember the nice hand crafted wooden extension tables in my slide shows this past week – those machines and tables belong to these ladies, the tables made by Carolyn’s handy hubby.
As a designer, nothing thrills me more than to see what you do with my designs – how you interpret them, switching colors, changing borders, combining my vision with your own. It is SO rewarding for me!
I took a lot of photos of show & share quilts, but there were so many just from Carolyn and Lisa that I thought I would give them a special shout out today.
Lisa’s Smith Mountain Morning from Scraps & Shirttails II!
Check out those borders y’all! This is where I smack my head much like the V-8 commercial and think “Now why didn’t I think of that!” Wonderful! I also love the red.
Lisa’s Lazy Sunday from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders!
Lisa’s Celtic Solstice!
Lisa’s Ocean Waves!

Thanks for coming all the way to Illinois to spend some time with me, girls! I hope it won’t be long before I see you again ---I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
Today and Tomorrow have been designated as my “WEEKEND”. I’m playing a bit of catch up. There WILL be a massage this afternoon. There will be a chiropractor appointment tomorrow in preparation for traveling to England on Friday.
I’m thinking Wednesday Evening will work GREAT for our next Quilt-Cam so mark your calendars and start planning that project – 9PM EST! Just come meet me here at the blog at that time and we’ll sew together.
Tonight I’m drawing for the winner of the 2 issues of Quiltmaker Magazine. Did you enter? Click HERE to go THERE to leave your comment on that post only to be entered!
