HAPPY SCRAPPERS MEET AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

The Happy Scrappers met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and have some things to show you.  Above, is Judi’s beautiful wool needle keeper.  This is the front.
Above, it is opened so you can see both the front and back.  I love all the various decorative stitches.  She does beautiful work.
Lee Ann shows us this gorgeous pillowcase she made.  I bet it is for one of her grandchildren.
Above is a close up of this darling fabric.  It's a wonder she got this sewn as I kept her busy helping me finish my bag and then attaching a light to my sewing machine.  I don’t know what I would do without you Lee Ann!  Thanks so much!
Peggy also made a pillowcase.  The fabric she used was purchased 16 years ago to make her granddaughter a dress.   The dress was never made, so Peggy decided it was about time to do something with that fabric.  She said a friend made a small pillowcase and stuffed it with left over scraps.  Peggy said that is what she is going to do with this pillowcase.  Great idea!
 Yvonne worked on her paper pieced focus squares.  This is quite a group!  I love looking at all her squares and finding those special centers, like the McDonald’s arch. 
This is a close up of one of her blocks.  Who doesn’t love a frog?
My favorite though is the kitty.  Isn’t he cute?

I was going to go to Knotty Girls tonight and get some pictures.  It’s been a while since I’ve been and I’m anxious to see what those gals are up to.  However, after being with the Happy Scrappers all day, and then picking up my four-year-old great grandson from nursery school and spending the rest of the afternoon and early part of the evening with him, I didn’t feel up to it.  Maybe I can make it the next time they meet.

ON ANOTHER NOTE: KD Quilts has a tutorial for a solid star.  Pretty interesting.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
