MORE NEW FABRIC AT THE ATTIC WINDOW

 More new fabric has arrived at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  You may have seen this before because it was so popular last year.  It was so in demand that Chris ordered more of these Hoffman fabrics this year.  Don't you just love those birch trees with the red birds!
 These are the coordinating fabrics to go with it.
 I may have shown these before but they caught my eye again and I had to show them.  The line is Anything Goes by Contempo.
And these brilliant colors are from the Sun Valley line by Kanvas.

Don't forget the new summer hours are Monday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday  10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

ROW X ROW STARTS TODAY

 

Row by Row starts today.   If you haven’t already heard about it, this is a new kind of shop hop.  You don’t need a passport.  There are no fees.  And you get to play all summer long.  Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt.  You can then combine your collected rows any way you want to create a unique quilt.  There are participating shops all over the United States and Canada.  Think of all the fun you can have traveling this summer.  You can get a list of the participating shops in Michigan by clicking here.

You can also click around on the website to find participating shops in places in the US and Canada where you are going to be traveling this summer.

And you can win a prize!  Create a quilt using at least eight different 2017 rows from eight different 2017 participating Row by Row shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop will win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize!

On The Go is the theme this year.  Pictured above is the Row that was designed by Chris at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  

This is a closer look.  Isn’t it stunning!  Be sure and get your free pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop today!

A THANK YOU AND NEW START!

Doing applique prep work this weekend.  I know I'm on the mend because I could not stand it one more minute.  I had to go down to my sewing room and get started on a new project.  Whoopee!

How about you?  Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.  We finally got some much needed rain here in Grand Rapids. And what does a quilter do on a rainy day?  Go to the Attic Window Quilt Shop and pick up some of that new fabric that has just arrived.

ON ANOTHER NOTE:
  • Marjorie who asked the question that was on the blog recently said this: 
    "Thank you for getting my question answered.  It is true finding something you didn't know was lost while looking for something else.
      My project for next month is to organize using the clear plastic boxes.  I think I need to de-junk my sewing projects/patterns.  I have in folders patterns going back to 1968!  After reading the suggestions I know I just try to keep too much stuff!!
        I am also getting a tray for my sewing area to keep the small things in.
          A big thanks to you and your readers for the help, now I just need to get busy.
            I finally did find Ellie.  In the last place I looked!!!! It had slid under a stacking bin I keep on the top of the filing cabinet to hold current projects.  I had to lift up the bin to find it.
              Thank you for your help and suggestions.
                Happy sewing,  Marjorie"
