Quilt Top New Definition

For anyone who has ever googled "Quilt Top" and produced guitars, you may know there is something unique about the term. I decided early on in the year that I needed to make a Guitar Quilt for our wildly successful choir director at Stanwood High. Since I adore www.RobbiEcklow.com I used her pattern.

Let's Play!

Remember Stack 'n Whack?

Bethany Reynolds' Stack 'n Whack book was first published when I was a beginner quilter. I ran to Fabricland and picked up the cheapest cotton I could buy. This had beans of all shapes and sizes and was $1.67/yard. I couldn't imagine a more hideous fabric!

I think I made 2 or 3 of these before running out of fabric. Stack 'n Whack only uses half of the lengthwise fabric. One of my friends loved it so much, I made her one. This one ended up in the Quilt Shop Magazine a few years ago!

Little Gift Idea

After seeing this cute Baby Jar Pincushion Tutorial on this page I decided to make gifts for all my supportive board. The Camano Island Quilt Guild consists of 150 women and 1 man. It takes a lot of people to create a successful year.

I didn't have enough buttons to fill 15 jars, so I resorted to candy! Then I added a little thank you tag.


I love seeing them all stacked up together!
