QUILT BLOCK COOKBOOK BOM MEETS

 The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is the block that we will be working on this month.
 Before kits were distributed, everyone had to hold up the block they made this past month.
 Don't they look nice!  Someone is hiding behind her block.  She said it was her practice block and that is why the fabrics are different.  She didn't have time to make her kit block but will get to it soon.
Kathy already made a practice block for the one we will be making this month.  Since she had to do a demonstration on how to sew the curves, she went ahead and made the block.  Like her fabrics.  (Okay, I confess.  I made the block in the first picture and I appliqued my curved pieces.  Can you tell the difference?)

ATTENTION:  The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM will not meet in December.  We have moved our regular monthly meeting to Jan. 4, 2017 and then we will meet again as usual on the 4th Wednesday of the month, Jan. 25.  MARK your calendar now!

QUEEN SHIRLEY GETS HER BLOCKS

QU
 The Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above, Queen Shirley looks at the blocks that the Hive members made for her this past month.  This is going to make a beautiful quilt.  Shirley gave us the red fabrics and some of the white/cream fabrics.  We added the blues and whites to make our blocks.  It is amazing how all the blocks look so nice together.  Can't wait to see as a quilt!
Charity is the Queen Bee next month.  Above, she shows us the block that we are to make for her.  Charity asks us to use the fabric in the kits she distributed to make the Coins In The Fountain block from the book Irish Chain Quilts by Melissa Corry.  This looks like an easy block to make for which I am thankful during this busy time of year.

ATTENTION:  The Bee Hive will not meet in December.  We have moved our regular monthly meeting to Jan. 4, 2017 and then we will meet again as usual on the 4th Wednesday of the month, Jan. 25.  MARK your calendar now!

QUILT BLOCK COOKBOOK HAS MEETING

 The evening group of the Quilt Block Cookbook BOM met Monday evening at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above Robin and Mary show the blocks they finished this past month.  They turned out nicely.
Above Cathy explains how to do the curve piecing on the block we will be working on this month.  I'll show you that block when the day group meets Wednesday.  I have to admit, I cheated and appliqued my curve square in this block.

Kits for this cute little guy are still available at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Only $5!
