Great Finds on Shop Hop

I am going to begin tonight by answering a question from Quilting Fiesta.  She wanted to know about the Pumpkin tablerunner and I wanted to share the information with everyone.  I did all of the hand work on the quilt but I did not design it, that was done by a wonderful quilter and pattern creator by the name of Susan Varenka.  She often gives classes at a local quilt shop and you can view and purchase her patterns at   

A couple of items from the eight shops we visited yesterday.  Click on the pictures to enlarge.

This pattern is for my embroidery machine.
These kits/patterns are so unique.  I purchased them at Quilting By the Yard.  They are quilts made on cardboard tubes, yes I did say on like a sleeve--love them!
Great leather buttons purchased at Coastal Sewing Machines:
Last for tonight, but certainly not least, the tote bag my friend Pam made for me to carry all of my purchases during the hop--isn't it gorgeous!  She also embroiders and put our name on each of our bags!  Thank you again Pam!


  1. Thank you. Your embroidery pattern and technique sounds very unique and intersting.

  2. Wow I've never seen anything like those "quilts on a sleeve!" What a great idea!!
