HOW TO MAKE YOUR QUILT TRULY YOU

This is the 2008 Attic Window Quilt Shop Sampler that Cathy M. did. Compare it to the sampler picture on the side bar and see what a difference her choice of colors make. This is truly a lovely quilt.
The Penny Rug Club still has room-------come join us! It meets the 4th Tuesday of the month from 1 - 4 p.m. or the 4th Friday of the month from 6 - 9 pm. We are doing two different projects this year. The first 6 months will produce a wall hanging, suitable for framing, and the second 6 months will be a 36 " round (or oval ) table rug. Samples will be in the store soon.
Beginners feel free to come for a class during one of these times. Call the store to sign up.

Finding quilting designs a challenge? You will achieve consistent and good looking results with the directions in this book: Free Motion Quilting Made Easy by Eva A. Larkin. There are 186 designs from 8 simple shapes. Stop in at the shop and pick up a copy.
Some Things of Interest:
Sew Many Ways has Tool Time Tuesday where each Tuesday she will review a tool or gadget. Check out what she has done with something from Home Depot and how she uses it for her quilting. Very clever..
