BEES IN THE ATTIC AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met Wednesday morning at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Pat was Queen Bee this month.  Above, you can see the blocks we gave her.

Last month, Pat showed us five blocks that she had made so we could have an idea of what she wanted.  You can read about it here (scroll down).  Pat also gave each of us a generous amount of fabrics that she asked us to use when making her block.

Pat's block is called Bitty Bits and is from the book Irish Chain Quilts by Melissa Corry. I'm looking forward to see this quilt finished.  Pat said she is making it for her daughter who wanted these colors.  It is going to be stunning.

Cheryl is going to be Queen Bee next month.  Unfortunately, she could not be with us on Wednesday.  However, she did send us directions for making this Chain block.  She also gave each of us fabrics to be included when making the above block.  She said in her note that we will need additional fabric to complete the block and asks that we choose autumn colors.  Looking forward to seeing Queen Cheryl next month!

    IT'S BEACH BAG TIME

    Can you tell where my granddaughter went to school?  I told her and my daughter that they should pick out the fabrics for the beach bags I was going to make them.  I'm glad I told her to choose.  I never would have thought of this fabric.   I think it was a good choice because she can use it when they go tailgating or to a game.

    My daughter also went to State and this is the fabric she chose.  At least they will be able to tell them apart.

    Above are the two bags together.  You can make a bag in less than two hours.  Just buy THE FAST & EASY MESH BAG KIT at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  This kit has everything in it: mesh, lining fabric, webbing, and pattern.  Everything is cut to size.  All you need to do is supply 5/8 yard of fabric.  I love these kits.  I think my girls are going to love the bags too.
