The new 2011 Sampler series starts this Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  In a previous post I told you about the tool that is being used for this project.  I blogged about it here.  Above is a picture of the first pieced block that you will make.  I can’t wait to see what the applique block will look like.  As a refresher: participants have the opportunity to make a pieced or an applique block.  Bet you can’t guess which one I chose.  If you haven’t signed up for this series yet, you can do so by calling the shop and registering for one of their many sessions being offered.  

The second annual Spring Cleaning SALE at the Attic Window Quilt Shop will be this coming weekend, Friday & Saturday, April 1 & 2.  You won’t want to miss it.  Chris always has the best sales. 

When I first learned about a new way to make half-square triangles, my biggest concern was how to determine size.  Whip Up is a blog with the answer.   While there, go to the Tutorials and look at the other projects they have to offer.  In addition, in the middle of the blog there is “categories” selection where you can choose what you want to look at.  There are a lot of quilting projects listed.  Check out this fun site.

Stay Positive!

Super great block! Looks like spring. Looks like it will be a really bright and fun quilt. Thank you for sharing. Love the links as well.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

I think it would be fun to make BOTH, wouldn't it? I would love to do this. Do you have to some up once a month? Or can you get the patterns sent to you, by chance? :-)
