The Knotty Girls met last week and I took some pictures during show-and-tell. Marcy made a real fashion statement when she made two large and four small bags out of one Bali Pop (Lining and straps not included). What a deal and what a unique gift for that person who has everything!

Marcy also made this quilt. Some of you might recognize the pattern as it was from last year’s Bus Trip. I bet when the first settlers came to this country they didn’t think about bringing quilts this beautiful.

Darla made this bag for her daughter who is in Veterinarian’s school in Cadillac. What a fun and practical gift for someone who will be working with animals!
Don’t forget the First Annual Spring Cleaning Sale at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Friday, April 23, from 10-6 and Saturday, April 24, from 10-5. All Fat Quarters—$2 and Fat Eights—$1. Special groups of fabrics—$3/yard. Discounts of 20-50% off all other fabrics. One of a kind books and patterns—30% off . Mark your calendar now!
Primrose Design has the cutest hen party stitchery pattern. Sure brought back memories when I saw this one. Check it out.
The Cranky Quilter has some creative ideas for what to do with one inch squares. You really have to check out her blog to see what I’m talking about. Looks like fun.

Until next time,
