Winter Fun!

We are still surviving in these bitter cold temperatures with huge snowbanks. Our walk and steps are always free of ice and snow and we usually have a pot of coffee on hand or hot tea/chocolate.
We have lots of exciting activities planned to keep up our spirits during these long winter days. Come in and join the fun! Some of our recent participants are pictured here with their finished projects.

These short projects give instant gratification better than chocolate!

Come in anytime: 11Am until 6 pm Mon.-Sat. Some Sundays we are here to escape the housework and create something beautiful.
See you soon!

Babies and Pastels

January is the month that I start thinking(dreaming) about Spring.  I am beginning to feel the effects of the lack of sun and looking at my pastey skin.   I enjoy working with the nursery prints and all those lovely pastels. I just finished a baby outfit (not an announcement of grandmother-hood).  It happens to be a little dress with small rosebuds and a slip to go underneath.  As I was making this dainty outfit, I reminisced about making many of my daughters dresses when she was a baby and even now as a young adult.  With so many department stores to buy clothing, it is hard to explain the feeling that handmade really evokes.   Today I am working on my "Cupcake Quilt" for Cupcake Week January 26-31.  We are planning some great sales and of course we will have cupcakes both the eatable as well as the fabric type.  So stop out and see us soon the Leelanau County Road Commission is doing a great job of keeping the roads clear.

See you soon,

Dear Jane

The next meeting of Dear Jane club will be Saturday, January 24th, from 10 AM until noon. If you are interested in joining, give us a call at 231-228-6689 and we will have a packet ready for you. You will need a pattern book or the CD program, which we can order for you at a special price. This is a long term club activity and each member will create their own version of the Dear Jane quilt.

Pajama Party

Don't you just love it when you can stay in your pajamas all day? We did just that at our PJ party on Sunday Jan. 4th. A prize was awarded to all who arrived in their PJ's (everyone) and new pajama pants were created in a matter of hours.

See the results! Join us for all the fun at Liberty Bell Quilts!

New Year 2009

Our New Year started out with parties-New Year's Eve and the Pajama Party on Sunday Jan.4th.
We had a wonderful time sewing, laughing, and planning more fun for the New Year.

Enjoy the photos! Come and join the fun-it's contagious!

Thank you for all the help on the charity Rail Fence quilts. We have two complete quilts ready to deliver to needy children and more will be completed soon.
