QUILTS, BOOKS, CLASSES

Judi A. took the above picture and is sharing it with us.  This is what she said, “Hi, I took a picture of Melanie P.'s quilt that she made out of the fat quarters that she won at the Attic Window for being the first person to bring in her finished Row By Row quilt.”
 Melanie also made this lovely Cardinal quilt.  She got the pattern and fabrics from the Attic Window.
 A special thank you to Judi for sharing these pictures of these beautiful quilts!
There are some new books in at the shop.
 And these.
And these.  See anything of interest?
Marilyn made this darling T-Shirt dress as a sample for the class she will be teaching next month.  The class is Friday, Nov. 7th.  This would make a darling Christmas gift!

THE MOD SQUAD MEETS AT THE AW

The Mod Squad (Modern Bee) met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  First off we had show-n-tell.  Above, Rosa shows us this stunning quilt that she is making for her son.  Rosa spent the day making and sewing the binding for this king size quilt!
Marti showed us this darling autumn wall hanging.  We thought those maple leaves looked like they were blowing in the wind.
At my insistence, Marti showed us this Jelly Roll quilt.  She said we have seen it before and she was just sewing on the binding.  I had to get another picture of this beautiful quilt.
Peggy (left) and Judi (right) shows us these Lil Twister quilts that they made.  Both are made with Halloween fabrics.  They are so cute!
Peggy had her QAYG blocks laid out on the floor so she could see how she wanted to put then together. I thought this a good time to snap a picture!  Love those blocks.
 Diana was there, but took some time off to help a student from her Tatting Class.
Later, Diana got busy and cut batik fabrics for her Four-Patch Slice and Insert quilt.  Notice the tall pile of fabric in the background waiting to be cut into squares.
Rosa shows us all the binding she is working on for her son’s quilt.
Cathy worked on her modern blocks.  I forget the name of the pattern but will tell you more about it when I get a picture of the entire quilt.  
And I made fabric.  When I was trying to decide what to work on, I remembered something Jacquie Gering said that she did, which was to grab a handful of fabrics from her red scrap bin and another from her green scrap bin and allowed herself to use only those when she made blocks for her quilt.  She used her scraps in a different way, but I used mine to make fabric.  I love this block from my red scrap bin.
And this is the block from my green scrap bin.  I love using scraps and making something from nothing.  I think I’ll continue making these 10” blocks and put them into a quilt.  What a fun day we had!

A FIRST PLACE WINNER

Have you seen this stunning quilt?  It is hanging up front at the Attic Window Quilt Shop
Above, Jane B. shows us her wonderful quilt. Jane won first place at the recent West Michigan Quilt Guild show.  Her category was Two Person-Mixed and Other-Machine Quilted, Over 75”.  The pattern is Calendula Patterndrip’s Cottage by Crabapple Hill.  Here is what the Quilts On The Grand program said about Jane’s quilt:  “This quilt has everything you would expect to find in Calendula Patterdrip’s Cottage: Potion bottles, spell books, hobgoblin earwax, just normal stuff.  Shading was done with crayons.  Jane made the top and it was quilted by Bonnie Rhoby.
This is another quilt by Jane.  She does beautiful work. 
Above, Peggy shows us the quilt she made for her grandson’s wedding.  Kelsey K. VanBonn and Ronald N. Kamenski were married on Oct. 10 of this year.  What an awesome quilt.

A special thank you goes to Diana who took these pictures and sent them to me.  Great job!
