First Saturday Bee met this weekend at the Attic Window Quilt Shop; however Sampler was just a pick-up.  I thought these pictures of this month’s blocks might be helpful.  The block is #20 on the tool.  The large one is 9”.

The small one is 3”.  There is also an appliqué block this month.  Hope these pictures help in fabric placement. 
No one had any show-and-tell this month.  Above Shirley is laying out rows for her quilt prior to sewing.  I love the fabrics she is using.  She said they were left-overs from other projects.  It is going to be beautiful!
Marci is busy working on her quilting.  Here she hand sews this stem and quilts it at the same time.  Marci is an expert at hand quilting and if we can ever talk her into teaching a class, it is one to take!

Check out this site for lots of scrap fabric projects.  An advertisement will pop up.  Just close it (top left on the ad) and you will be able to go to the various projects.  Click here to enjoy!

Stay Positive!
