Happy Mother's Day To All

This wool tabletopper or wallhanging was discovered hanging on the wall in the wool corner at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Can’t you just see it in your house? This is a quick and easy project. Call the shop for details.

Gerry has done it again. She made another quilt from her stash! Goodness, wouldn’t you just love to see her quilting room and go through that stash? Her quilts are lovely.

The Friday evening UFO class was in full swing this week. Lois Parker was doing traditional rug weaving. She brought in her own frame. She says weaving uses up lots of fabrics and is a good way to use up your stash. When asked how long it would take to make this rug, she said she didn’t know but her teacher said she could make one while watching two Lifetime movies.

Have you ever heard of wet bags? Sara Larson makes these darling bags that are lined with water proof rubberized material, the kind used in hospitals and it is anti bacterial. She said it is easy to sew with. She made the pattern herself and makes the bags in four different sizes. You could use them to contain anything wet, like wipes, diapers, wet swim suits, make up, etc. She does pretty well for a gal who has only been sewing since January!

Have you ever thought about making your own slippers? Shabby Raggy Roses has a nice tutorial as well as some other really darling ideas for you.
Until Next Time: Happy Quilting
