I did get up to the Attic Window Quilt Shop today and found some interesting things. I always do. A couple teachers had stopped by to pick out some patterns/books and fabric to get samples ready for the next session of classes. Above is a purse sample that Lee Ann made for the shop. Don’t you just love these winter fabrics in these bright blue colors. Everything isn’t just red and green anymore. This purse pattern is from Quilts Illustrated and is called Taylor’s Trio. It is FQ friendly. Pick up your pattern now at the shop.

Julie was having a doll class today. Above, one of her students is painting the face on her doll. This is such intricate work!

These dolls are just beautiful. Julie does such a good job of teaching these classes; she makes everyone look like a professional doll maker. She said that she has a Penny Rug Santa class coming up. She said you could make the Paper Mache doll too if you wanted. Be sure and check the button on the side bar to see how Julie makes these fantastic dolls. She also said she has picked out a Rag Doll pattern that she will be teaching next session. I can’t wait to see it. I love rag dolls and think I will be able to make one of those.

Do you remember the cute Christmas napkins everyone was talking about last year? They were unusual and looked so nice on your table. Check out Sandy Quilts for the tutorial.

Until Next Time, Happy Quilting,

Thanks for the nice words about my dolls. I just follow the instructions in the pattern, they are so good they make everyone look like a professional doll maker.

Does anyone have a favorite Rag doll pattern they would like me to consider for a Rag doll class? I'm leaning towards Raggedy Anne and the camel with the wrinkled knees. - Julie

The dolls are so cute - two thumbs up to Julie - just beautiful and so detailed.

I love having "holiday" handbags. Just about anything "goes" these days.
