AQS QUILT WEEK BEGINS!

AQS Quilt Week begins in Grand Rapids, MI, Wednesday, August 20th and runs through Saturday, August 23rd, at DeVos Place Convention Center.  Be sure and stop by the Attic Window Quilt Shop booth.  Among other things you might see, is the above quilt.  I made the pattern into a bed runner, but the entire quilt pattern is in the book El Camino Real.  The pattern is In Remembrance by Nancy Rink.  This was such a fun quilt to make.  The book is also filled with a number of beautiful patterns.  You won’t want to miss this one.

ANOTHER NOTE

Did you go check out the Row By Row Shop Hop website?  This is a must for anyone traveling. 
Happy Quilting has a Going Dutch Block Tutorial.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

APPLES FROM A BEE

Isn’t this the cutest wall hanging?  Judi A. sent me this picture from the Tuesday Morning Bee at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is Julie Barnum with her Apple Art Quilt.  It is adorable!  Thank you Judi for sending.  I would have hated to miss this one!
The last time I was at the shop, Marilyn showed me this darling table runner.
This is a close-up of the block.  I love this fabric.  Stop by later in the week for more details on this wonderful fabric and the pattern.

DON’T FORGET: 
  • AQS Quilt Week in Grand Rapids begins Wednesday, August 20th, at DeVos Place Convention Center.  I’m getting so excited!

OH THE BLOCKS WE CAN MAKE WITH THIS NEW RULER

I stopped by Vickie S.’ Squedge class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and have some pictures to show you.  Above is Catherine’s work in progress.
I love the fabric Catherine chose and never would have thought you could use something like the above to make this block.  It is going to be awesome!
Above, Vickie (left) shows Lee Anne how to place the ruler on her strata.
This is a close-up of what Vickie is showing Lee Anne.
I caught Nancy working on her block, but she said she had nothing to show us just yet.
And Sharon is really serious about getting her strata sewn so she can get on with making her block.
Vickie sent me this picture of Sharon’s finished block. It is marvelous!
Above, Vickie and Sally have some discussion on Sally’s block.  Sally was visiting from Florida and when she read on the blog about this class, she decided to take it!
This is Sally’s finished block.  Another spectacular block!
As I told you before, Vickie is an excellent teacher.  She puts together lots of samples so her students can see the various designs that can be achieved by choosing different fabrics.  Above, Vickie shows the students how cutting one piece can change the look of the block.
The above is a college of the block samples that Vickie made.  You can see how important it is to choose the right fabric to get the look you want.  If you are interested in taking a class with Vickie, just call the shop and talk to them about it.
