NOT JUST FOR BAG LADIES

I made another Retreat Bag.  You may remember last week I posted about the first Retreat Bag I made when I took a class with Marilyn at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
Above you can see the lining and the wide open mouth.  I call it a Dopp Kit and made it for my son to put his shaving gear in when he travels to the cottage or to my house.  You can find the free pattern on the internet and the wire frames can be purchased at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

COUNTRY FAIR ROAD TOUR A SUCCESS!

 
The Attic Window Quilt Shop participated with three other shops in a Country Fair Road Tour which took place last week.  I blogged about it here.
As promised, there was food and drink for everyone.
There were demonstrations.  Above Marilyn shows people how to use a new ruler.
 She shows us the various cuts you make with the ruler.
 Then she showed us how to put the pieces together to make this darling block.
 She also showed us another way to use the ruler to make this block.
Above are the blocks with the ruler and the Beach Ball pattern.
 And there were games.  Above, Lee Anne watches as a customer tries her luck.
 Another customer tried the toss.
These were in the basket of prizes given out.
 As I walked around the Shop, I noticed some new items on display.  I love these above.
 The patterns can be found in the above book, Harvest Time Quilting.
Above are more items that can be found in the book.
This is also something new.  The flowers are printed on the fabric.  You embroidery the outline and then color what you want.  Looks like fun to me.  You can get the fabric already stamped with the patterns at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  What a fun three days!!

HAPPY SCRAPPERS DO IT AGAIN

The Happy Scrappers met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  As usual, we had a fun time.  Above Lee Anne got us all giggling as she went through some project boxes and muttered, "I didn't know I had this."  or "Oh, I forgot all about this." 
We watched in awe and giggled with her as she pulled out various items.  Items we all wish we had!
 Lee Anne did have some finished projects to show us.  She made a couple pillowcases for her granddaughter Eva.
 This is a close up.
 And this is another one.
What makes them unique is that these fabrics glow in the dark!  How much fun is that!
 Vickie S. also joined us that day and showed us some WIPs.  Check out this spooky house above.
 She is working on this table runner also. 
 This is a close up because I knew you'd want to see that spider!
 Vickie has several of these blocks and is not sure if they will be made into a table runner or maybe individual place mats.  This is made with a new ruler which will be demonstrated during the Country Fair Road Tour this week at the shop. Go here for details.
Another work in progress is this yo-yo Christmas wall hanging.
 Marti sewed binding on her quilt.
Above Marti shows us her gorgeous quilt.
 A young man stopped in at the shop and I asked if I could take a picture of his project.  Above Mark Cook shows us his first quilt.  
We were in awe that this is his first quilt.  He did everything, even the quilting.  Thanks Mark for sharing your beautiful quilt with us!
