The group participating in the Whimsical Garden BOM at the Attic Window Quilt Shop met today and received their kit for this block.  This is a fun group.  I don’t know exactly how many are participating but I don’t think any month that we’ve all been together.  Today we had two new participants join us.  It’s never too late.  You can still catch up.
Above, Sandy shows us her completed block from the kit that was distributed last month.  Sandy should get a prize!  She was the only one to complete her block this month!  Congratulations, Sandy!  You did a great job.
Some of the other members were determined not to let that happen this month and got right down to business.
It is good that they got busy because next month we will have a special demonstration by Chris.  Above, she instructed everyone on how to prepare for our session next month.  She suggested that you trace a pattern (any pattern you would like to try) onto the rough side of Wonder Under.  She used a Sharpie permanent pen to do this.  She said that if you are interested in giving her method of machine appliqué a try; bring your sewing machine, the Wonder Under with your pattern drawn on it, and fabric.  Hope to see all of you next month!

ON ANOTHER NOTE:  Sew Lux Fabrics has a tutorial for a cute little sunshine mug rug.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

what a cute whimsical flower block that Sandy created. I do hope you will be showing what Chris does with the wonder under and the design drawn with sharpie on the webbed side. I'm very interested in what she's up to.
