HAPPY SCRAPPERS GET BUSY

The Happy Scrappers met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, Marilyn shows us the Retreat bag she was working on that day.  Love that fabric with the cherries.
Adrienne came  in with these trays of fabric all cut and ready to be sewn.
This is the block she made with those fabrics.  What a stunning quilt this will make.
 Adrienne also made this very little Sweetpea Pod.  She is making it to hold earrings.
Here the zipper is open.  Look at how small that is!  I'm amazed.  This is so cute!
Cathy was busy making Sweetpea Pods also.  She had made some Bendy Bags to be given as presents and when she discovered what she could do with those leftover pieces, she got busy and made these.
When Diana wasn't busy helping people with their Sweetpea Pods, she was working on her own project.  She is making an Ornament.  The pattern is Holiday Stars by Poor House Designs.
And this is what I worked on.  I had a bag of scraps left from a quilt I made several years ago.  When I saw A Year Of Scrappy Triangles, I had to try the pattern.  They are paper pieced and each triangle is a different pattern.  I had the big circles left over from that previous quilt, so I plan on using them too.  Maybe placing a circle block between each triangle block.  You can see the patterns for the scrappy triangles here.

MAKING SWEATPEA PODS AND CLASS CHANGE

During Craft Day at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, Diana (above) told us not to throw away the half square triangles left over from when we made our Bendy Bag.  She told us we could use those triangles to make the little Sweatpea Pods.  Since Rosa and I didn't have time to make those during Craft day, Diana graciously said she would show us how during Happy Scrappers.  We were grateful and traveled through our first snow to make it to the shop on Saturday.
Above, Rosa shows us her two SweatPea Pods that she made that day.
 Diana worked right along with us and above she shows us the four pods that she made.
Above are the Pods that I made.  They are small but will be great for traveling.  I like how you can fit a spool of thread and bobbin into the Pod.  The other one will be filled with Candy nutritious things for my trip.   What is even more important, they were basically free since they were made of left over fabric which would have probably been tossed.  We did have to buy one zipper and an extra pull, but that was practically nothing.  What a fun project.  I bet little kids would find a use for them too.  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
A special thank you to Diana for her excellent teaching.  BTW, Diana's Ornament Placemat Make It Take It class which was scheduled for Monday, Dec. 11, has been moved to Thursday, Dec. 14th.  So you still have time to make this placemat/table topper/wall hanging.  Call the shop to register.
