Deb's Quilts

 Deb has always liked making quilts with small pieces.

Barkley's Birds 2005
Anna Williams, Log Cabin
But once she discovered the quilts of Anna Williams she changed direction...

Brian's Quilt

She loves working in improvisational style

 The best gift you can give her is a bag full of scraps too small to save.

 She loves the found object, whether it's a masterpiece improvisational quilt like the one below that cost her $30

 And which inspired her to make the one below

Or a scrap of fabric in the trash

 Now the idea of found scraps in the trash may give some of us the willies...
But Deb does great things with them.

See a blog featuring this quilt which she made at Pt.B a few years ago

And read her blog Thrift Shop Quilts

Sally  writes to say that her surgery went very well. She was out of commission and so was the power at Pt. B.

Got out in three days. Not on any medication. Am recovering at my son's til Monday. Then head home with my twin sister, who will be with me for a week.

Vivian writes
The electricity was down for a day or so at Point B.. for those of us that were trying to get hold of someone by phone or email, to pay the final payment, we were not getting through.. and the lady that was supposed to answer was out sick.. I did get through and finalized the payment with my credit card.. . The lady I spoke to said not to worry..

And let's not even think about the power going out again!
Handsewing for a week.

Flaming Furniture Part 2

Kathe D.

Well the project started about 1984 in Kansas.

We added blocks in 1994 from our friends at Pt. B.

Then we made new friends and asked them to make blocks

Nadra 3

Nadra 1

Nadra 2

The blocks ranged from 10 inches square (sorta square) to 15"

Deb R

Joanne Flaming Flame
Joanne designing, Georgann sewing
We now have 16 blocks!

What's it all mean you may ask.
Google the words Flaming Sofa
You'll find out.
It means nothing

And we aren't as clever as we thought we were.
If you Google Flaming Furniture or Burning Couch, etc. you will find lots of

But you can order a cake.
For what occasion I cannot imagine.

Stay tuned for finished top.
