  Before we get to the new stuff at the Attic Window Quilt Shop I want to show you a couple more quilts that Chris made for the Quilter’s Road Trip that runs through June.  There are twelve area shops participating.  You get a chance to win a $25 gift certificate each month at each shop.  Also available will be new projects, patterns and giveaways.  You can still get your Passport for  only $5 at the shop. 
This is another quilt that Chris designed.  There are three patterns all together.  I posted about the previous one here.  You can pick up your pattern, which includes all three designs, in June by showing your passport at the Shop.
Now for the new stuff.  Don’t you just love new stuff?  I got so excited when I saw these new books at the shop.  They are all must-haves.  Stop in and take a look.
Of course, I couldn’t get away without showing you the wonderful new fabrics in at the shop.  Above (not the dark fabric on the left) are fabrics from the Happy Go Lucky line by Moda. 
Now to the dark fabrics on the left in previous picture.  These fabrics are adorable.  The line is Alley Cats by Kanvas Studios.  I can’t wait to get some of these cute little kitties for my focus squares paper pieced blocks.
These Charm Squares and Jelly Rolls are called Icicle Kisses by Kansas Troubles.
Above are Bali Snaps, Bali Crackers, Bali Pops by Hoffman Fabrics.
These Honeycombs, Charm Squares and Jelly Rolls are also from the Happy Go Lucky line by Moda.

 I’ll be spending the next couple days going over patterns to see how much I need of all these beautiful fabrics.

:  In case you need inspiration as to what to make with some of these fabrics, check out Molly Flanders for an even easier arrow tutorial.  Also, A Few Scraps has a nice tutorial for a linked block. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I'm not going to look! My sewing room is so overflowing right now, I'm shaming myself into not buying anything new for a LONG time! (We'll see how long it lasts.)
