NEW FABRICS AND NEWSLETTER AVAILABLE

It looks like summer is finally here in Michigan.  I love this weather!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.  I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and found some beautiful fabrics that I wanted to share with you.  This first picture if of fabrics by Bernatex called “The Best Of Mary Lou.”  I think this is from the Mary Lou Weidman line and I love it.  I can’t wait to make some Power Flowers with these gorgeous fabrics.
Floralicious is also by Bernatex.  Aren't they luscious?  Perfect for this time of year.
There are actually two different selections above.  On the left is Katie by Bernatex.  And on the right is Seasons (Balis) by Bernatex.
I love this panel.  Floral Fancies is also by Bernatex.  This would make a lovely wallhanging, lap quilt, or you could even use the individual blocks to make small wallhangings, placemats, or for a pillow.

ATTENTION:  The latest Newsletter for all that is happening at the Attic Window Quilt Shop is now available.  Click on the Ladies Hat on the sidebar and learn about all the upcoming classes, the new and fun special events, and the free classes available at the shop. 

How Stuff Works has instructions for how to make a Sweet Clover quilt block.  This is a fun site to browse too. 
Stay Positive!

I know its not summer fabric but I was in the Attic Window on Thursday and the new Nancy Halvorsen Christmas line had just arrived (sadly it wasnt for sale yet).

It is beautiful!! I love Nancy Halvorsen and am planning on getting into the shop Saturday to purchase a panel and some FQ's. I love that the Attic Window always seems to have the fabric I want!

Just now getting to checking the blogs. Lovely fabrics. The new fabrics are so bright and vivid with color. So very cheerfu.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

P.S. Sharon Shambers quilts are a true masterpiece and exquisite.

Caroll,

For some reason I cannot open the newsletter. This is what it tells me: Sorry, we are unable to retrieve the document for viewing or you don't have permission to view the document.
Please try again later.

I tried this morning and again just now. :(

Yea! You fixed it. No I don't know much about pdf files on Google. I think you either have to make them public or leave them private. Is that right? Anyway I'm off to look at what classes are available. I'm thinking of taking one or two just so I can get motivated to make something. I've been in a bit of a sewing rut lately and haven't been motivated to do much at all. :(
