SAVE MONEY, SAVE YOUR SCRAPS

When the weather gets you down the best thing to do is quilt. Of course you first need to stop by the Attic Window Quilt Shop and pick up some fabric. Then you can start on that project, or continue making those flying geese. If you are doing the Geese in the Forest BOM over at Twiddletails you will need to make 27 of these blocks during the month of March.
Too many times when making a block there are bits and pieces of that lovely fabric that end up in the trash. You might as well throw away money. Save those scraps! Above is the pile left over from the flying geese being made this month. Someone said that April is “use what you have” month. Why wait? Why not start now?


This is what was made from last month's scraps. You can do the same thing. Just stitch those little pieces together and make new fabric that you can use to make a basket like this. Or make flowers. There are any number of other things you can make with those scraps. Try it, you might like it.
Jeanne Ray Crafts has state flower patterns. Take a look.
Until Next Time: Happy Quilting!

Oh, I love it! Only thing is - I had to buy lots of fat quarters to get the RIGHT kind of scraps - that's my story and I'm sticking to it (lol) - might even need just a few more!

Does the attic window quilt shop have a web site to order from? I couldn't seem to locate it. I am interested in looking closer at the primitive garden bom. When did it start?

Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
