Also just in at the quilt shop are these luscious fabrics.  They are Fresh Bloom by Contempo of Benartex.

When you are in at the shop to pick up some of those beautiful fabrics you might want to also get this new Block Tool.  It's packed with hints, tips and tricks as well as filled with 110 quilt blocks in five different sizes.  This is a must have for your quilting needs.

THERE ARE BEES IN THE ATTIC

 The newly formed Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above, Cathy M. explains how a Bee Hive works and distributes the monthly schedule which indicates when we will meet and who will be queen that month.
Notice all the cell phones?  Cathy is instructing those with an iPhone how to set up an account on Instagram.  That is where we will show our blocks and ask about fabrics.  I'm at another table talking to those who have an Android.
 Above, Pat shows us a sample block that she made from the book we are using.  When she is queen she expects to ask us to make this block.  Seeing this now, gives me enough time to collect some of those gray fabrics.
This is a closeup of Pat's block.  I love the fabrics she has chosen.
 A few of us stayed and sewed at the shop after our meeting.  Cathy made another one of these no curve sewing blocks.
So far Cathy has made all of these blocks.  She's not sure what she intends to do with them, turn them into placemats or make a table runner.

FUN HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS

We are finally frost free and I've been working in my garden most of the week.  That is the reason I haven't posted lately.  Above is my block for Pat Sloan's My Secret Garden.  I struggled with all those pinwheels, but finally got them finished.  It's almost time for the June block.  Can you believe that?

Fun happenings are still going on this week and weekend at the Attic Window Quilt Shop despite the Holiday.

DON'T FORGET:
  • The Bees In The Attic Bee Hive meets Wednesday, May 25, at 10 a.m. at the shop.  Come ready for the first Queen Bee to tell you about her block.
  • Also, Come Sew With Me is Wednesday, May 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the shop.  All are welcome. 
  • The Scrappers Helping Hands will meet Saturday, May 28.  Rosa said that she has plenty of pillowcase kits for your to work on.
