Creations’ Viewing of the Quilts 40th Anniversary Event

posted in: Anniversary Event | 0

The “Viewing of the Quilts” celebrating our Creations’ 40th Anniversary “Stir What You Got” Quilt Challenge is on March 15-17, 20017. Don’t miss it!

These quilts will go to the Rainbow Room in Kerrville, Texas and will be distributed to children removed from their home environment.

We have 227 quilts in the viewing, which will all go to the Rainbow Room. 150 of these quilts were submitted as part of the “Stir What You Got” quilt challenge. The remaining quilts, weren’t part of the challenge, but were donated by the gals at Creations as well as other customer contributions.

We appreciate the overwhelming participation we received for this worthy project.

We’ve prepared 3 youtube videos so you can see all the wonderful, creative, quilts that friends and staff of Creations lovingly created for this project. If you can’t get to Creations this weekend to see them, be sure to watch these videos.

First, an overview of the entire collection of quilts:

August Tuffet Retreat – A Great Time

Tuffet Retreat
Tuffet Retreat Creations

We just finished our August Tuffet Retreat at The Main House in Kerrville, Texas.  Creations sponsored this retreat and we had 13 “tuffetiers” as they labeled themselves.

In our retreat there is plenty of time to sew so everyone has the chance to finish their tuffet.  We love them all.  The fabric choices were so different and each tuffet was so unique.  We had two tuffets made from old ties.  These gals probably worked longer at home to get those ties ready than they did at the retreat.  One tuffet was Australian fabrics made to coordinate with a quilt.  There was the vegetable dye fabric that looked like the old bedspreds form the 60’s….love that one being a child of the 60’s.

We had 3 square tuffets made in this class.  There was one from the Australian prints, one from the Serape stripes and one using the handwoven ikats.  Each was so different and so wonderful.

We are so proud of everyone who attended this retreat and wish them all future tuffet success.

If you want to make a tuffet, you can purchase our kit, pick your fabric and get started.  Order the supplies and pattern on our website at Tuffets.

We all worked together to complete the tuffets.  It was such fun to see them all coming together.  Hope you will want to make one yourself.

Hand Stitchery — Always Popular

Hand Stitchery Patterns

 

It seems that hand stitchery never goes out of style.  We continue to get new patterns and Maisie continues to make us samples.  Our favorite background for stitching is Essex from Robert Kaufman which you’ll find on our linen page.  Once you get to that page, you will have to scroll down through our beautiful digital printed linens to see the solid Essex colors.

We love Crab-apple Hill designs as well as so many others.

You can see what we have available online at Hand Stitchery.

 

 

These are just a few of the stitched out samples from Crabapple Hill you will see on your next visit to Creations. Or visit our Crab-apple Hill page in our online store.
