BIG BAGS ARE BEST

This Quilt Camp Tote Bag is big enough to carry all your quilting needs! You will love the special pieced patchwork pockets on the front and back and there are plenty of pockets inside too. The handles are heavy duty and fit over the shoulder for extra comfort. Join Lee Ann on Friday, May 7th at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and make this bag.

The Chubby Charmer is another great BIG bag! This is a wonderful tote for those large difficult to carry items. Going to the beach? Camping? Quilt retreat? This is just the bag you need. Join Lee Ann on Wed., May 12 at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. You’ll be glad you did.

Focus Squares - The possibilities for the focus squares you can use in this wall hanging or quilt are endless. You can choose to fussy cut an all over fabric, or you can appliqué any design of your choice. In addition, you could do machine embroidery or hand embroidery. You could even use pictures for the large and small blocks. Whatever you decide, you will have a fabulous looking wall hanging or quilt that you have made your own. Carolyn E. will be teaching this class on Fri., May 7 & 21.

Quick Trio Table Runner - Carolyn will also be presenting a FREE class on Tuesday, May 11th. If you purchase the pattern and fabrics at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, the class is free. This quick table runner can be done in a short amount of time. You will have a great time picking out your trio of fabrics. Use colors that compliment your home, accent a party, or celebrate a holiday. This table runner also makes a fun, quick gift. ALSO, don’t forget Carolyn’s Stack N Whack workshop begins Wednesday, May 5th.

Chris will be teaching a Mystery Block on Friday, May 7th. Sorry, I can’t show you a picture because it is a mystery. I can tell you that you will make a fun easy strip pieced block using five fabrics from light to dark, plus background fabric. Call the Attic Window to sign up for all these fun classes.

Rhonda of Quilter’s Paradise has posted instructions for making a Pinwheels In Motion block. There is also a link to how to make her Boston Blocks, which you will use in making the Pinwheels block. Check it out.

Until next time,
Caroll

Love these bags, big and roomy. More great stuff going on in your shop. Quilter's Paradise is a most interesting place. You can learn so much there. Thank you so much for sharing.

Have a super great day.
