HEART OF WINTER TOUR

Who wants to drive around in Michigan winter weather when you can go in style in this?

The Heart of Winter Tour is Saturday, Feb. 11th.  You should arrive at the Attic Window Quilt Shop  in time to get on the bus at 8 a.m.  You will then be driven to visit three different quilt shops where you will get time to shop. Shops you will visit are Quilted Memories in Montague, Around the Block in Portland, and Quilts Plus in Kalamazoo.  While shopping at these shops you will receive snacks, and at one of them, Lunch will be served.  You will then be driven back to the Attic Window Quilt Shop where dinner will be served, and of course there will be time for shopping (so don’t spend all you money at those previous shops!).   The theme this year is Sewing.  

You will get a stress-free ride to these four shops while you relax and visit with friends, served lunch and dinner, plus snacks, all for the great price of only $60.  Call the shop today and reserve your seat.

RECENTLY AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

When recently at the Attic Window Quilt Shop I noticed the above wall hanging.  I understand it is just part of the Farm Girls BOM quilt.  I love this!!
 Diana showed us something new at the Shop.  Notice the marks on the cutting mat above.  It looks dirty, doesn't it?
 Diana shows us how to clean that mat with a new tool in at the Shop.
 You can see that it does a good job!
Stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and get the Cutting Mat Cleaner today!
This is the finished quilt that Cathy will show you how to make when you take her Valentine Project on Friday, Jan. 27.

HAPPY SCRAPPERS HAVE FUN

The Saturday group of the Happy Scrappers met recently at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, Adrienne (left) gets a quick lesson from Diana on how to make the Little Jewels tri-fold bag.
Above, Adrienne shows us her finished project.  I think I may have taken her an hour.
This is a close up of Adrienne's bag.  If you would like for Diana to teach you how to make them, give the shop a call.  Several different sizes are included in this one pattern.
Adrienne, who rarely uses a pattern, worked on this project next.
That was after she finished her low volume quilt.  She sure gets a lot done!
 Lee Anne is working on this charm square quilt.
 Cheryl worked on this colorful quilt.  It looks like a card trick pattern.
Jill worked on this quilt.  The middle is from a panel, but there is lots of work required on the borders.  Above, she shows us the first border that she made with Thangles.
Not sure what Vickie and Diana are up to.  (No good, maybe?)  I think Vickie was working on her Sampler quilt and Diana is doing some paper piecing that she will not let me see until it is completed.

DON'T FORGET:  The Post Inventory Sale going on this week at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
