I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop Friday night to pick up some fabric and the UFO class was in session. Diane Miller agreed to share her latest project with us. She made this tree skirt with a ten degree wedge ruler. I’ve never heard of that but thought this project might be something I (a non-piecer) could do. You can read about this ruler at Quiltz. Diane said that it is a very easy design to make as it is really all done with strip piecing. She has made four of them so far and has one more to go, one for each of her children. She makes each one unique by using different fabrics. She thought it might be fun sometime to close the hole in the center and turn it into a table topper. This is a must-try project for me.

Members of the UFO class in session that night seemed busy with various projects. However, all work ceased when Chris demonstrated a new technique. She thought it would be fun for them to learn something new. I believe this monthly evening class if full, but there is a day UFO class also. Call the shop if you are interested in either the day or evening monthly sessions.

Don’t forget about all the classes being held at the shop this week. Above is a picture of the 30’s Windmill quilt. The class is this Wednesday.

Denise Clason has a great tutorial for a designer luggage handle cover. This is a great gift for those who travel.

Stay Positive!

Pretty tree skirt - it sure looks complicated to me, lol. Never heard of that ruler! Love the windmill quilt - part of it has to be the fabrics, though, my favorite.

Thanks for sharing about that ruler. I haven't heard of it. I will have to check it out. I love piecing.

Love that tree skirt. Never heard of a 10" ruler. I'd like to see it demo'ed.

Wonderful tree skirt. Would have loved to be in on the demo. The 10 degree ruler looks like a great tool. Thank you for sharing.

Have a super great day.
