2017 - Off To A Great Start!

2017 has already kept us very busy! Just the way we like it! :)

We had a wonderful time in California at the Road to California Quilt Show...even though it was a little too cold for our liking!

We had a lot of extra help this time around! Jenny's daughter, Brittany, was a lot of fun and even learned to sew curves and demo like a pro in no time at all!

While at Road to California, Gammill made their announcement that we will be 3 of their newest Gammill Quilt Artists! We are thrilled for this opportunity and to team up with Gammill! :)

After California Helen and Sherilyn rushed off to Logan Utah to participate in the Winter Quilt Fest.  They had so much fun teaching, sharing quilts, and most of all getting to know many more awesome quilters!

Jenny has been doing a little sprucing up around her home after getting Christmas all packed away. 
How about these awesome runners for a little inspiration!

And, Helen has been making some huge changes around her home. She decided a bigger creative space is what was needed. Here is a little sample of what she's been up to. 
Even her new pressing station got a significant makeover!

We have many new and exciting projects in the works. We are working on a new book and new patterns for this year!

How about a Mini Country to go along with our very popular Chic Country!?!

Here is a side by side for a little comparison! So itty bitty and adorable!! :)

And we're not quite sure what these will be but they will definitely be something!! Mannequins, dress forms, bathing suits?? Guess we'll have to wait and see! :)

We just recently surprised our mother for her 80th birthday! We agree, she does NOT look 80!! All six of her children and a daughter-in-law made it to Mesa, Arizona to surprise her! And it sure was an awesome surprise! It was so fun to be all together, even if it was just for a day! 

Happy Quilting!

Sew Kind of Wonderful
Jenny, Helen and Sherilyn

Wow, what a whirlwind of activity! Love the Mini Chic Country, that's my all time fav SKW pattern, so no big surprise! I also was hoping you all would provide the alternate layout for the Metro Twist using Tula Pink Eden fabrics and that awesome Kona Cotton "Pickle". So in love with that layout, hoping to see it made available!

I'm so glad I could be in your Mod Pineapple Class at Road to CA. There was NO Beach time for me due to the rain and cold. I have added Machine Embroidery to one of the Pineapples for a Welcome Wall Hanging. It turned out pretty Cute, Even if I say so. Those figures are pretty intriguing. It's good to be a Gammill Girl! Happy Be-lated Birthday to your MOM.

Oh I would love to try a Mini Country! I am so intrigued by that pattern but not sure about attempting a whole quilt. So are you saying this pattern will be in your new book? I hope so! And it would be great if it came with the appropriate ruler :) I'd buy it!! And your mother is beautiful and certainly doesn't look 80. Great family photo.
