update of "ugly fabric" quilt

My friend Ann in Seattle quilted and bound this quilt and it has been donated to Quilters Anonymous as a charity quilt. Look at my post in December to see it when the borders were not yet complete. Ann did a fabulous job quilting each motif block.

I am looking to forward to seeing you IN PERSON very soon.

All Saints window display in Seattle

It is really difficult to take a photo of this window display. This is a clothing store in downtown Seattle near Nordstrom, but on 2 sides, they have very large windows with stacks of old sewing machines mounted. There must be more than 200 machines! Each vertical column might have 10 machines. I think this might be the building where the Coldwater Creek store used to be.

2nd try: Elaine's Bellissima

Maybe this looks better!

stitch and bitch

There is something odd going on , online.

When I search for Stitch and Bitch, lots of other stuff shows up but not this blog.

This is very odd. So I'm going to post this message and see what happens.

We shouldn't have to type Stitch and Bitch Quilters to get to this site.

ttfn :) Yuki

Elaine's Bellissima top

Hi Everyone -- my color combination is related to Clara's, but mine is more of a seafoam green. I took this photo with my new smartphone (which I LOVE). I am going to be soooo obnoxious now with posts to Facebook!

Happy Birthday Jenny!!

We secretly made blocks for Jenny for her birthday. Mary Ann & Beth hosted Stitch and Bitch where we gave Jenny her blocks. We had a wonderful lunch and Jane made a yummy chocolate cake.

Here is Mary Ann telling Jenny about the blocks. Look at that cute quilt on the chair Jenny is sitting on.
Jenny was surprised. What fun we had!

Here are Kim & Jane. Look at the panels on the closet. Mary Ann & Beth are such great decorators.

Here are Lori, Clara & Beth. Can you see the blue coming from the room behind Beth? She seems to be glowing.

Mary Ann was having too much fun playing with Jenny's blocks. Maybe we should make some for her, too.

Doesn't Jenny look happy!

I can't wait to see what she makes.

This is Bellisima. As a challenge, I gave everyone directions to make this quilt to complete by the end of this year. Clara said that she just had too much to do but look at what she has done! These colors are wonderful. She did an amazing job!

I haven't even begun mine.
