Jeanne B. recently wrote me about a quilt show in Big Rapids. Unfortunately I could not attend The Quilters Glory Quilt Show, a biannual event at the Big Rapids Middle School and the Old Jail. I would love to have been there as vintage quilts were on display. Jeannie told me that this year the quilt show's challenge category was “In the Park." Quilts had to be no larger than 40" square and include a blue bird. Jeannie said, “This was the first time I entered a challenge. Seamus (her dog) inspired me to create Pooch Park, a place where Seamus loves to play. I drew, pondered fabric choices, cut, appliqued and embellished Pooch Park in a three-month time period.” Above is the darling quilt that Jeanne entered into the challenge.
Above, Jeanne’s cat Squeekie wants Seamus to leave her usual spot on the bench. Jeannie wrote, “Squeekie loves him but that is her spot. Oh what fun it was to create a whimsical take on the park.”
Thank you Jeannie for sharing this darling quilt with us. You did a fantastic job on the design and fabrics. I bet you did have fun making it as it makes me smile to look at it.
ON ANOTHER NOTE: Ellison Lane has a tutorial for a Quilt Bee Block 4 Way Stop.

Quilting for Kids With Cancer
Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
This blog is dedicated to the women and men of West Michigan who would like to attend the Attic Window Quilt Classes. This is where you can see the class samples and pictures of the teachers.
