"Blowing in the Vancouver Wind" is the name of this new original design for the Clark County Quilters in and around Vancouver, Washington. Look how beautiful they turned out! Everyone had a great time and learned some of the secrets of working with 100% felted wool. We had a perfect weekend with rain and wind - just the right weather for stitching with friends and neighbors, especially when working with wool!

Heidi was manning the booth across from us at the Houston Quilt Festival this fall and chose our Mis-Matched Mitten kit to take to Mozambique where her sister and 5 children live. The children are home-schooled and this project counted as their "art" lesson for the week. Seeing the smiles on their faces was such a gift to me and Heidi states that the kids had a great time working on it. Thanks for sharing!

This beautiful traditional Penny Rug was designed and made for the 2012 "Think Pink Tea" silent auction in Great Falls, Montana. My friend Brenda is on the planning committee for the tea and asked me to make something for them. Because I am a firm believer in supporting the fight against breast cancer, I was on board immediately. Please enjoy viewing this Penny Rug and if it gives you an idea about supporting your local breast cancer efforts, then good-on-you! Barb

I made this Penny Rug for my good friend Tese for Christmas last year. She is an excellent fly-fisherwoman with over 30 years experience under her belt and bragging rights on hundreds of streams and rivers around the world. She is also active in Warriors and Quiet Waters (returning vets) and Casting for Recovery (breast cancer survivors). The colors depict the spots on a native Montana Brown Trout.

This pattern is our "All Season Wreath, #410" that this Wild Thymes customer made using one of our "options" to design her very own wreath. The pictures look so different when in fact they are the same main background and green pennies but the decoration was changed. She added beautiful Autumn leaves in golds, oranges, rusts and purples for the Fall Season and circular snowflakes depicting night and day for her Winter-time. She also had 2 other original designed seasons, but we didn't have room for all of them! The extra seasons are stored on the back of the project so you always have them together in one place for easy changes. A fun and easy project to stitch - Thanks for sharing!!

The Prairie Rose Quilters in Watford City, ND., sure know how to have a good time! We had 3 days of fun, food and stitching this Spring (2012). Even with the trials & tribulations of the oil-boom in their front yards, these ladies know how to persevere. We all working on the "Paradise Valley Pear" which offers stitching from rank-beginner, quickly to intermediate skills. And look at the results! I can honestly say, that in all my 30+ years of teaching, these ladies truly outdid themselves. I was lucky enough to have Wanda as my hostess. Staying out on their ranch was a big part of the entire experience. Thanks again Wanda!

My cousin Kellie from Oregon, sent me a picture of her finished "Wool Club" Crazy Quilt Pillow! I don't think she knew I was going to post it, but to have one finished so fast! It took me 3 months to finish my original and she did it in a matter of days! Her choice of stitches and embellishments are so nice and I am wondering if the center is a piece of family jewelry. Nicely done Kellie!

When Melinda bought her first 2 kits for the Original BOM quilt little did she know that her very artistic Mom Vi would fall in love with them. As they say, the rest is history, Vi fell in love with Wool Applique! Melinda purchased the remaining kits for her Mom and this picture is the finished blocks (in record time). Vi has added buttons and beads as embellishments to personalize her quilt. What a team Melinda and Vi make!

Susan from New York sent us these amazing photos of her finished block-of-the-month quilt, she has it hanging on her dinging room wall. She decided to frame the entire quilt with a beautiful tapestry ribbon, so that the individual flowers would really stand out.

Her 96 year old Mother-in-law used to watch her stitch on her quilt project, so as a Christmas gift, she stitched a pillow of her favorite block. When she passed away, the pillow was the only thing of hers that Susan asked to keep. Thank-you Susan for sharing this heartfelt story.

Shawna is one of my original - long term customers from Canada. She says that her quilt was "five years in the making but worth every minute". She had it longarm quilted by her friend Cathy of Leduc, Canada. Shawna added lots of personal touches to her quilt like birds, flowers and detail to the scalloped border. Truly an Heirloom quilt to be handed down to many generations to come.

Linda

Linda was working on her first Wild Thymes pattern, the “Glenda's Garden” block when a friend mentioned it looked like an “O”, the first letter in Linda’s last name. The block soon became a monogram and is now finished and hanging on her living room wall, they call it “The O”. It is so nice to see our patterns being used for individual projects. Keep up the good work Linda!

"I changed a few of the blocks a little bit and completely re-designed the trumpet flower block with a new arrangement and a hummingbird. The setting and the border are my own design but the flowers are based on elements from your blocks. I love the quilt and get many compliments on it. Thank you so much for the beautiful designs. Cheers! Miriam"

"Hi, my name is Tese and I am delighted to share with you a photo of my 7th shoulder bag. I fell in love with using felted wool as a fabric medium 3 years ago when I made the Wild Thymes "Pinchusion"! Since that time, I have made a number of their great designs adding my own embellishments and personal touches as well as improving my stitching abilities and expanding my creative talents."

margaret “I can’t resist sending photos of my Wild Thymes Wall Quilts”, stated wool appliquer Margaret from Canada. She chose to make 3 vertical panels and won viewer’s choice recently at a quilt show in British Columbia! Yeah Margaret!

Margaret took our advice and changed some of the blocks to make them her own designs. She says “this is a project that is easily personalized as one becomes more comfortable with the technique”. Thank you Margaret for sharing with our Wild Thymes customers.

Irish Rose from Korea "The Quilt House Co. LTD" in Seoul, Korea stitched our "Irish Rose". Please note the different application of making a pillow instead of framing the design. We LOVE to see our customer’s personal inspiration and like to encourage everyone to adapt our designs for themselves.
lizjoe

Liz finished her BOM quilt and is entering it in the Dallas Quilt Show. She said, "I added a couple of bluebirds to get more color as I erred early on by not using the bright greens provided in the kits. Thanks for your encouragement through the years, it was a fun project." I remember Liz coming into our booth in Houston and literally vibrating when she saw the quilt. I will never forget her response and delight in purchasing the kits for herself. I don't think she realized the pleasure she gave me, it was like a gift and I thank her for that.

Rita

Our friend Rita, from Australia, is making this quilt for her granddaughter, She says that her granddaughter likes all colors as long as they are pink! Rita will use a hand-dyed pink sashing to put her blocks together and we hope she will continue sending progress pictures and one of the finished quilt. Thanks for sharing Rita!

ellen "Earth’s Laughter" by our friend Ellen is simply awesome! Her use of color and stunning embroidery stitching is over and above the normal blanket stitch! By changing the flower colors to reflect her personal preferences, Ellen has truly made this quilt her own. Ellen is one of Wild Thymes original customers from our very beginning. Thanks Ellen for sharing "Earth’s Laughter"!

Glenda and Sharon are two of my original (1999) “Wool Group” members. They have been with me from the VERY beginning of Wild Thymes. I have chosen several of their BOM blocks to share with you so you can see the beautiful choice of colors and embroidery stitches these two women have stitched.

Sharon was a complete (embroidery) beginner when we started this project (that is another story) and Glenda is an accomplished needle artist with several awards to her name. I consider both of these women sisters of my heart.
