FIRST SATURDAY BEE SHOW-N-TELL

The First Saturday Bee met yesterday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I wanted to share some pictures with you.  Judy Mayhak made this flag quilt.  She (that's her behind the flag) said it was a Bargello style pattern and that she probably would not quilt it as she was going to hang it outside.  I love the fabrics.  Just in time to help celebrate Independence Day.
Marge made this bag.  I’m sorry about the blurry picture.  Apparently I moved, but I wanted to show it to you anyway.  Marge was so excited about this purse and was telling us how she solved some problems when making it.  Really a cute bag.
Here Chris is showing us a LARGE bag that Jeanne made.  Don’t you just love those fabrics!  This bag is so big you could put your rulers and large cutting mats into it.  Look at the sewing machines on the trim around the top and the tape measure in the handles.  You can’t see it, but the button on the corsage is a picture of her children.  What a great idea!
Jeanne also made this bag.  She saw a panel at the shop and liked it so much that she decided to make this bag.  I love this fabric.  Can't beat birds and flowers.
Jeanne also made this bag. Here she is telling us how she made the prairie points.  She said they were not difficult at all.  Aren’t those fabrics lovely!
Shirley is making this spider web quilt.  She will send it to a mission in Haiti when she is finished.  She said she used her scraps to make the spider webs and that she is going to tie it instead of quilt it.  It is going to be a lovely quilt, one I’m sure the people in Haiti will appreciate.
Remember when I told you last week about Allie’s blog and all the links?  Today she has some more links that you will like.  Check it out here.
Stay Positive!

Love the flag and all the bags - that big one is the kind you need for classes! I love the birds and flowers, and the prairie points. Awesome spiderweb too!
