SEEN AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

 Recently while I was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, Jill stopped by to pickup a quilt that Carol Huster had quilted for her.  I had to get a picture of this beautiful quilt. 
 What really impressed me was the back of that quilt.  I later discovered it is a cheater fabric, but it sure looked like someone had done all that piecing.  This is a great reversible quilt!
 Also, while at the shop I saw this lovely table runner. 
This is a closeup of the wonderful fabrics.  You can get the pattern and fabric for this quick 5 minute table runner at the shop.

HAPPY DOGS FROM HAPPY QUILTS

 Just a quick note to remind you that the Going To The Dogs class is this Friday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. The QAYG and Fuse method will be used to make these blocks.  You can make one for a pillow, or wall hanging, or make several to go into a quilt. 
You can also use your imagination.  All the dogs are the same in the pattern in the book Happy Quilts, but I get bored easily and tried to make each one a little different.  I hope you will join me Friday in making this fun quilt.  Call the shop to sign up and get a supply list.

HAD A GREAT TIME AT THE FAIR

 The Attic Window Quilt Shop was all decked out for the season during the Country Fair Road Tour this past weekend.


These are just some of the things you saw when you entered the shop.
 Of course there were snacks, but there was also a demo.  This is the table runner that Diana showed you how to make.
 Above is her demo board so you could see how all the pieces came together.
This Creative Grids Non-Slip Multi-Size 2 Peaks in 1, 6" Triangle ruler is what she used to make the table runner.  She also shows you several different ways to put the blocks together. This ruler is one you will use more than once!
Above, some customers watch Diana's demo.
 Another customer plays a game and wins a prize.
 I don't know what you call this game but when you get two balls tangled on the ladder, you win!
Another customer takes her turn and wins a prize too.

This is a busy time of year and if you missed the fun of this Country Fair Road Tour, you can take part in the Jingle Bell Hop next month.
