HAPPY SCRAPPERS MAKE USE OF SCRAPS!



 The Happy Scrappers met this past Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and I took lots of pictures.  Above is this beautiful Ring Around the Rose pillow that Peggy made.  She took a class at the shop with Sue Christafferson.  I think the pattern is from the book, “Every Day Home Made.”
 Above Peggy holds her 3D pillow.  It is beautiful.

 Yvonne also took the class and made a pillow.  This pillow looks beautiful in any fabric selection.

 Above are Peggy’s, Yvonne’s, and Sue’s pillows.  Aren’t the lovely!

 Rosa just got the quilt for her grandchild back from the quilter.  Doesn't it look wonderful!
 This is a darling little pincushion that Adrienne showed us.  She said a friend made it for her, using those special stitches on her machine to embellish each little square.  So cute.
Janalee proudly shows us this darling little bag.  She said it is the first project she has completed at Quilt Camp after going for three years.  LOL
Janalee shows us the other items that were inside.  So cute!
Paula showed us this charm quilt that she was making for the Neonatal clinic.  Great job Paula.
Yvonne also showed us this beautiful quilt that she made for her granddaughter.  She said she has been working on it since 2005.  Congratulations Yvonne!  You should be proud that you are getting things finished!
  Adrienne was working on this quilt while we sat, sewed and visited.  She said the pattern is Summer In The Park and she saw the video on how to make it at Missouri Star Quilt Company.  Adrienne has a wonderful color sense.  I never would have thought to use these fabrics together, but it works and I love it!
Paula also showed us this darling quilt that she finished that day.  It is a Bunny Hill pattern called Baby Cakes. The gray and yellow colors were almost too soft for the camera to pick up!
Karen stopped by to show us her completed quilt of the Snowmen BOM that the shop held.  I think this is the final month for it.
Here is a close up of this month’s block.  This quilt is going to be so cute.  Karen said she had some special beads that she was going to use for the eyes, after she has it quilted.

I have a few other things to show you too, but I think that is enough for today.  More to come tomorrow.  This is such a special group of women who not only are fun to be with, but sure are a productive and creative group.  I love them!

ON ANOTHER NOTE
The Cute Life Smiles has a nice tutorial for an improve herringbone block.  I love this block and would like to make it up using scraps.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Thanks for sharing! Wow...those pillows! But I really love the quilt with the mouse ears on it too, and Adrienne's pink and yellow combo.
