allison's house

Sunday, June 28, 2009
weekends are usually catch up on blogs and sewing time for me...
not this weekend...
this weekend was full of food... people... and a trip to the beach...
i didn't get much sewing done but i had lots of fun...
and i finally got the chance to go to allison's house!

allison is a friend of mine who works at the shop with me...
she is incredibly talented and her house is a great eclectic mix of styles and ways to display quilts!
so here is a virtual trip to her house... since she doesn't have a blog... yet ;-)

enjoy!!

the first quilt she ever made...




sweet bird and creative decorations

tula pink bunny curtains!





allison often quilts in cute happy cheery words in her work...






one block wonder



(yes allison i went in the closet... you said i could peek around!)


sweet treats... i love this one!











i really like how she puts words in her quilting... i may have to start doing this!

allison told me about this months ago and i was looking forward to seeing this... she rotates all the cute aprons she makes so that they aren't away and never seen!




ric rac!!

detailed paper piecing!!

i love how allison mixes fabric... she just goes for it


note the knitting basket and quilted coasters... she finds ways to put quilted things everywhere!


the true mark of a quilter... mat and ruler poking out under the couch!! .. i didn't set this up!

supplies in a basket

and more supplies... and hex flowers!


i hope you enjoy this virtual trip to allison's house as much as i enjoyed actually being there!

wow! Love the giraffe. And pretty much all of the rest.

And I'm glad I'm not the only one with my mat and ruler under the couch!
