Remember this quilt? Today was the first BOM meeting at the Attic Window Quilt Shop for making this quilt.  It is Whimsical Garden by Piece O’ Cake Designs.
Chris had kits put together for us and we all got down to work.
Most of them wanted to do the Freezer Paper method of applique, which surprised me.  I was more than happy to show them how I do it.  It's my way to applique.
Quilters amaze me.  They are so creative!  It’s a window.  It’s a door.  It’s a light box!
I caught Cathy off guard.  She was really concentrating when I yelled at her to look up.
A couple quilters stopped by just to sew and chat.  What better place to spend the afternoon sewing and being with friends.
This pattern is so versatile.  Last year I took three of the blocks and made this wall hanging.  I hung it in my newly refurbished laundry room.   I can’t wait until next month when I’ll show you the blocks everyone completed.

On Another Note: Chock-A-Block Quilt Blocks has lots of interesting blocks for you.  Scroll down and see them all and how to make them.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I REALLY wish I was closer. I have this pattern, but making the fabric selections scares me, lol. I wish I could stitch along with you!

I do remember this quilt and I loved seeing it again! :0)

Love how cheery and springy that looks, especially on a cold, snowy day like today! :)

What a cute pattern! My favorite part is the border. No surprise there!

Oh, come on. Stop it now. I want to do this BOM now. Actually, I'd rather do this one than the one I signed up for (the embroidery one). It's taking too long to get going and I've kind of lost interest. Wonder if Chris would kill me.....
