We have been promising all year to do a quilt project with Tink's class. It is becoming a semi tradition. I say semi because we actually skipped a year and didn't do one last year. But we are back on track for this year and we have almost waited too long to complete the project because the year is almost over! Our school mascot is the Bulldogs, so we made raw edge appliques of Bulldog paw prints. Two large ones for the teacher and assistant and smaller prints for the students. The kids traced their own paw print and cut them out then we ironed them on the fabric. This was a little break from their countless hours of preparing for their end of grade testing, which takes place next week. Here is the class with their project.
This is Russ ironing on the appliques. The kids were so excited to see how it was going to turn out.
Now I have to stitch around all the paw prints, then borders and then on to the long arm it goes. Stay tuned for the finished product!
Located in the heart of the Great Smokey Mountains in the small rural town of Murphy, NC, our business grew out of a love for sewing.
Russ is a graduate of Montreat College and a Desert Storm veteran. He worked his way through college working in the local sewing factories-thus his extensive experience in the sewing field.
Rhonda's love for quilting began with a gift certificate, to the local quilt shop and the rest is history!
