START YOUR GIFT MAKING NOW

I couldn’t resist showing you this bunny wall hanging. Easter will be here before you know it. Do you have your Easter projects finished, or are you like me, still thinking about them? tia whippy wyanet did you get your redwork pattern? I tried to e-mail you but not I’m not sure if the address was correct.

I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop Friday night to pick up some material and found a group of women working on their UFO projects. Gerry Cavanaugh is starting on her Christmas gifts already. (I wish I were that organized!) She showed us some darling bags that are perfect for coloring books and crayons. No names on them yet, but I bet her little friends and relatives are going to enjoy their Christmas gifts

Don’t you love this new Benartex fabric in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. It’s called Playful Pups. I’m going to get some just as soon as I decide how I’m going to make up the Cats fabric I purchase last week. Above are only two of the fabrics from the line. Stop in at the shop and take a look at the others. You won't be able to resist.

Mrs. Moen has a couple nice tutorials on her blog. One is what to do with small scraps. The other one (check on her sidebar) is about dealing with flimsy fabric.

Until next time,
Caroll

I love the bunny but I do not do much for Easter anymore. I do have several Christmas gifts made and put away already. It is what I do over the winter when I have to stay inside.

I absolutely love the bunny! I would love to make that one! I do not have any Christmas gifts begun yet! I do have a couple of Easter items to make though! Thanks for sharing!

Gerry is thinking about Christmas already? Bless her heart. Great idea for bags for kids. Love the bunny block. You girls sure keep busy.

Have a great day.
