HAPPENINGS AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

I've been trying to post for the last two days, but Blogger has been down. If you’re like me, your weekend was busy with graduations, and open houses, and sweet sixteen parties. However I did manage to squeeze in some time to pop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Chris has reorganized the shop and a lot of the items she brought back from market are on display. The First Saturday Bee was in session and I got there just in time for Show and Tell. This first quilt is by Mary Tanis. She said she made this quilt for a friend and used fabrics she had purchased two years ago in Alaska. I love those fabrics. What a great friend she is.

These next two quilts were made by Catherine Mueller. Catherine said she started this sampler quilt over a year ago. These red, white, and blue colors are all the rage now, so I think she finishsed it just in time to be trendy. Great quilt.

This is also by Catherine. You’d never know it is made from a panel. Isn’t it stunning?

Judy Raymond made this quilt. I took a picture of her lovely redwork table topper, but unfortunately I must have moved because it was too blurry to show you. I'm glad this one turned out. Love this fresh pallet of colors that she chose to work with. Great job Judy!

Don’t forget Shop Hop is all this week. This year’s theme is Skip Along the Trail and at each shop you will get some trail mix along with other items. Chris announced Saturday several other upcoming events. Stop in at the shop and pick up the June Calendar. There is a free pattern on the back.

Stash Manicure has a tutorial on making bags with your scraps. Wonderful!
And check Stash Manicure's blog here for another tutorial. This one is for a scrappy hour glass block.

Until next time,
Caroll

I was trying to leave comments on blogger blogs all day yesterday and got so frustrated that it kept telling me blogger was down. Grr! All those comments lost. Anyway, these are great quilts. Thanks for sharing!
