Reprieve

After receiving a number of emails on the two color quilt challenge it appears that several of people didn't know about it and a few, maybe just a few, might not be done, so here is your official notice.  You have until February 29, 2012 to finish your quilt and because of the extension I've jacked up the requirement, the quilt must be completed with binding done.  In case you didn't know about the challenge and still want to get in on the fun here are the details...


  • 2 colors and 2 colors only.  It can be any 2 colors but only 2 colors.
  • any size, shape, pattern, design
  • quilt must be complete, quilted and binding done
  • you must have fun


I had originally said I wouldn't disclose my two colors till the end and the end was suppose to be tomorrow so to be fair I'm gonna let y'all have a peek into my colors...but not my design...

Until next time...
Be Creative...

Canvas Boards

While I was at Quilt Market in October I came across these Canvas Boards...





They had several different sizes in their booth and I feel in love with the possibilites of what a creative crafter could do with them.  You could add fabric and turn the little squares into attic window blocks, show off your button collection, or display your collection of pins that you pick up in your quilt shop travels.
At Kelly Ann's Quilting we used them to display our collection of Needle Nannies & Scissor Keeps from Puffin & Co...
what would you do with a Canvas Board?   Do you have a collection of buttons, pins, or whatnots to show off...so tell me what would you display?

Until next time

Christmas Movies/Shows

Do you have a favorite Christmas movie or show?  I don't know that I have just one favorite...I love White Christmas with Bing Crosby...
and then there's...
It's A Wonderful Life...
I bet I've seen this movie close to 30 times and to this day will say...Every time a bell ring an angel gets it's wings...

Then there are the cartoon or animated classics...the one I'm watching while writing this blog post is...The Grinch that Stole Christmas, only the original one allowed here...
who doesn't love to hear Boris Karloff's voice at Christmas time?

But my all time favorite animated show...EVER...is Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer...
Burl Ives rocks...and Hermey...the dude only wants to be a dentist....and Bumble, what a lovable guy.  I found the coolest web sight that list all the characters...ya gotta go visit if your a fan.

So...do you have a favorite Christmas movie or show??

Until next time...

Pantie Raid

It's Pantie Raid time again at Kelly Ann's Quilting.  We started collecting panties on Wednesday and will keep it up until next Wednesday the 30th...want to make sure we give everyone a chance to drop some off a package or two and enter to win a $25.00 gift certificate.  Remember, new packages of ladies or children's panties in various sizes are welcome.

and...

We're also having a pillow case sew-in Friday & Saturday starting at 10:00am each day, we'll have a few machines set up and the ironing boards ready to go.  I have the perfect pattern to use, so grab your stash and lets get sewing.  If you only have a few minutes to spare we'll find a job just for you.   All the pillowcases and panties will be going to the Safe Shelter in Culpeper that is a safe haven for battered and abused women and their children.

Last year y'all did me proud by donating all the panties and I know you can do it again...

until next time
Be Kind...
