Above is Maggie’s Garden Friends BOM. We have such talented teachers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Maggie has done excellent work and her students are making beautiful quilts. If there is something special you would like one of our teachers do (teach a special class, help you with a certain project, etc.) just give us a call and let us know. Maggie, this is a truly lovely quilt.
This past week was Mystery Week at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Participants had their choice of where they would start making their quilt – at the Attic Window or at Quilted Memories in Montague. There were a number of time slots at each quilt shop when participants could quilt. This group started at Quilted Memories on Monday where they made the quilt center. They didn’t know what they were going to be doing until they arrived at the shop. They were given three different color choices. Then they finished their project on Thursday at the Attic Window. Attending mystery events is a fun way to stretch yourself. It gives you an opportunity to use fabrics that you might not normally choose. One participant agreed and said she would never have chosen these fabrics, but now she loves her quilt. Another participant was heard commenting on the lunch that was included, “I sure would like the recipe for these lemon squares,” she said. “They are different and so good.” Got to get that recipe!

Our Doll Teacher Julie made this rooster pin cushion. Isn’t it the cutest thing with all its embellishments? Julie said she and her Bee did them and she is willing to do them again. The Bee meets the second Thursday of the month. She says the chicken is easy to do. It's just based on three squares of fabric that you sew together in a special way. You add the beak and tails then you sew it together, stuff it and add the feet and eyes. Just call the shop and let Julie know if you are interested making a chicken so she will bring the needed materials to the bee. Check out Julie’s blog and see what else she’s up to.
