I have more to show you from the Happy Scrapper’s meeting held recently at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I held this back for a post all  its own.  Above, Judy F. shows us her Palais Royal set that she made!  You won’t believe all that is in this darling sewing set.  Judy said she used silk threads to do the cross stitch and some surface area embroidery. 
Just look at these beautiful items!  They are awesome!
Judy said that she took a class to learn how to make these.
I can’t get over the intricacy of these delicate items.
I just can’t thank Judy enough for bringing in these precious items to show us. Her work is stunning!
 I forgot to show you yesterday…this is the ruler that Yvonne used to make the pillow I showed you yesterday.  Of course, the Attic Window Quilt Shop has this Circle Savvy Ruler by Creative Grids.

 Judy also went to Quilt Camp with Janalee.  Yesterday Janalee showed us what she did while there.  Today Judy wants to tell us what she learned while there.  Judy asked if we were like her in that when we got a new ruler, we tossed the instructions in a drawer and later when it came time to use it again, you couldn’t find them.  TIP:  She said that when you purchase a new ruler (like the Circle Savvy Ruler for instance) you should use a binder clip to attached the instructions to the ruler when you are not using it.  That way, you’ll always know where they are!

We are collecting Converging Corners blocks for a charity quilt.  Above is the block that Adrienne made.
This is the block that Yvonne made.  I think all these blocks will make a wonderful quilt.  Anyone is free to donate a 12 1/2" block.  You can bring it to our next Happy Scrapper’s meeting in June, or you can drop it off at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  There is no time limit.  I will put the quilt together once I get enough blocks.

ON ANOTHER NOTE:  Samelia’s Mum has a tutorial for Fresh Diamonds, an easy quilt.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Great converging corners blocks! I love the palais royal! So, did she make the wood part, too, or buy that? Where did she take the class? That is really neat!
