They can make Justin do just about anything. This time he was trapped by a "stash" owned by a true "scrapaholic."  This show also featured a quilter who curates her own collection of vintage sewing machines. Which show is it?

Created with over 4 million seashells, no one has the answer to the mystery of "Shell Grotto" which was discovered in 1835 in Margate, Kent. This ornate subterranean passageway has almost all of the surface area of its walls and ceiling covered in shell mosaics.

Alex and Ricky are joined by Barbara Yates Beasley, a lifelong lover of animals, who says, "when making an animal portrait quilt, it's all about capturing the expression of the animal and its soul." Barbara will show you her method for doing just this.

Alex also demos a "zig zag" binding without using bias-cut fabric.

Star Members can watch Barbara in Show 1905:  Animal Portraits.

Here's a fun Christmas gift, or birthday gift, or just because...for your little one.  It's a snuggly owl pillow by Ashley Johnston at WeAllSew.com. 

Ashley says, "It's made with love and totally customizable. Try it once then create it again and again using different colors and fabrics as gifts or treats for the little ones in your life."

We have been traversing the Pacific Northwest meeting new people and visiting old friends. It is this person-to-person connection that fills a hopeful heart and I may be prejudiced...but, quilters are special people. You can see more of our travels on the Quilt Roadies You Tube Channel and on wooliemammoth.blogspot.com. I have been stitching away trying to make a dent in my growing pile of UFOs. The thing about being a Nomadic Quilter who loves to write about quilting is that the pile of "must make" is growing taller, LOL. Each stop we make I swear I am not going to buy something...oh well, quilting promises are best broken!

A heartbeat away from Mt. Rainier is a wonderful quilting oasis. Shibori Dragon, located in University Place, is a one-of-a-kind quilting adventure. They have wonderful batiks, Asian fabric, specialty Japanese fabrics, Sashiko threads/products and an amazing array of die cut motifs for one-of-a-kind designs. I was amazed at the two full walls of quilting stencils and...no kidding...probably every bag or purse pattern in publication, plus samples!!! It is also the home base for Mary (she makes most of the shop samples). Mary is one of the Twisted Sisters...so named by me when we first met at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show! They all have a wicked sense of humor and a day spent with the Twisted is an "ab" workout from laughing!! Just to give a heads up for those in the Portland area September 22-24 https://shiboridragon.com/ owned by Becky Scellato will be vendoring at the Northwest Quilting Expo!!



Enjoy the slide show and we'll see you back here next Wednesday!!!
