BARB IS QUEEN THIS MONTH AT AW BEE HIVE

Barb was the Queen this month when the Bees in The Attic Bee Hive met today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
These are the blocks we gave her.  There were far too many to put them on the cape we usually drape over the Queen.  This is going to make a stunning quilt!
Some previous queens have completed their quilt, so we had show-n-tell.  Above Cheryl show us her finished quilt from the blocks we gave her.
This is a closer look at the quilt.  What a warm quilt.  It just invites you to cuddle with it.
You may remember, almost a year ago when we started the Bee, I was the first Queen.  I finally finished putting the quilt together.  The women all made wonky blocks for me.  Isn't it cute!

OLD BOM AND NEW BOM

Marilyn K. sent me pictures from the Farm Girl BOM held at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  This BOM is wrapping up this month.  Above is Marilyn's lovely quilt top.  Marilyn and Sue C. hosted this BOM.  They will be starting a new BOM in May.  It will be from the book El's Attic.  You can read more about it here.
Above is Sue with her quilt top.
And this is Julie B.'s quilt top.  I'm amazed how different each quilt is, yet they are from the same pattern.  I love each one!   I bet El's Attic will be just as much fun.  I understand it will be offered in two different colorways.  Call the shop to register for this BOM. You won't want to miss it!

A special thank you to Marilyn for sending pictures.  These quilt tops are stunning!

WHAT HAVE YOU MADE LATELY?

The Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Saturday.  Above, Marti shows us this lovely bag that she just made.
This is a closeup of the bag.  So cute.  One can never have too many bags.
This is another quilt that Marti just finished.  She was hand sewing the binding on Saturday.  So pretty.

It was a beautiful 59 degrees here in Michigan on Saturday and our attendance was low.  I hear some were on retreat, Rosa was on vacation, Janalee had a wedding to go to, Mary had car trouble and I imagine some ladies just wanted to be outside and experience this unheard of February weather. So Lee Anne, Marti, Diana, and I held down the fort.

I worked on this paper pieced project.  Not happy with it, but it was a test project.  More news on that later.
