AUNT MILLIE'S BLOCK #3


This is the third Aunt Millie’s block. These are such fun blocks to make. The big challenge is finding the right fabrics. Well, browsing the quilt shops, looking for just the right piece to go there or there is fun too. I just can't bring myself to try to make that intricate little circle that the pattern calls for, so I'm still looking for a unique piece of fabric for the center of my pink and orange block. Maybe the Attic Window Quilt Shop has some new fabrics. I’m going up there tomorrow. Hope to get some new pictures too.

Until then, you might want to check out the nice tutorial that Piece N Quilt has on it’s blog. I love the way the trees are off center in this Figgy Christmas quilt. Hope you like it too.

Geta’s Quilting Studio is having monthly freebies. Check it out. I have put the button on the sidebar for your convenience.

Until Next Time, Happy Quilting,
Caroll

Hi Carrol,
I think you need to rename your series "Aunt Millie's Zingers". You are picking some very zingy fabrics. Mary Lou would be proud of you!

At some point could you post the hours of operation of Attic Window? Maybe it's somewhere but I didn't find them. Thanks.
