I had to show you this block. I love finding new ways to use my scraps and when I saw this how-to for Crazy-Pieced Blocks in the latest Fons & Porter’s Scrap Quilts magazine I had to try it. This how-to is a quick and easy method to make blocks for the Pixie Sticks pattern in the magazine. It was so much fun seeing this block grow and seeing my pile of scraps diminish (well, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell any difference in that pile, but I knew). I hope to make some more blocks and put them together in the Pixie Sticks pattern. It would make a nice charity quilt for the Quilts For Wheels group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
For those of you who like working with wool, check out Tiny Toad Stool for a wonderful way to use your scraps and make a beautiful gift.
Wondering what to do with the kids/grand-kids now that school is out. Check out Shiny Happy World for a free pattern for a game that is sure to keep them busy.
Many thanks and much appreciation goes to the women who work diligently each month to make quilts for those in wheel chairs. Kudos go to: Yvonne, Mary T., Fran, Joan, Mary Ellen, Barb, Lee Ann, Nancy, Mary.
Quilting for Kids With Cancer
Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
This blog is dedicated to the women and men of West Michigan who would like to attend the Attic Window Quilt Classes. This is where you can see the class samples and pictures of the teachers. Be sure and stop back from time to time to check out what is new. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
