Don’t forget, the Christmas in July Sale begins today (Monday, July 15th) at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and runs all this week through July 20th.   Won’t you join us for a week of specials and a free pattern with a purchase?  Sale fabrics have been marked down further and there are special prices on the Christmas fabrics.  EVERYTHING in the shop is on sale! 

Also, now is a perfect time to start on those Christmas gifts.  You can get a head start when you attend the free stitch-in this weekend, Friday, July 19th from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday, July 20th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Marilyn will be showing you how to make a special Made With Love patchwork pouch.  Kits will be available to purchase (pattern is free) or you can use your own fabrics.  Limited seating is available so please call the shop and reserve your spot. 
I thought I’d give you a preview of some of the new items at the shop, ones you won’t want to miss.  That first picture at the front of this blog is just a close up of these fabrics by Timless Treasures.  Have I told you how much I love cats? Check out that cute fabric of the mice (to the left).
These are by Kanvas Studio by Bernatex from the What’s the Buzz line.
This is a close up of my two favorites.  My mind is whirling thinking about what I will make out of these gorgeous fabrics.
These are from Blank Quilting’s Bugalicious line.
These are also new at the shop.  They are from Kanvas Studio.

So much fabric and so little time!  Yikes!  I better quit talking to you and get to my sewing room!  See you tomorrow with lots of pictures from the Happy Scrapper’s Bee.

  • Warm Winter Blessings is a new BOM which starts August 1st.  This fun quilt features a gathering of "cool" dudes.  For $12 a month you get two blocks each month.  This is a pickup only.  You must purchase a pattern at sign up time.  You will be given a supply list for the borders and binding which are not included in the kits.
  • LeeAnne will be teaching an Easy Tote class on Wednesday, July 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Cost is $25.  This cute bag is done with just two fabrics.  It is fun and easy with optional pockets and tabs.  You will learn about the different products she uses and how to apply them.  Pattern is included.
ON ANOTHER NOTEThe Crafty Quilter has a tutorial for a darling winter table topper.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Great new fabrics! We got some gray and yellow prints in last week too. I forgot to get a picture to post. I love that the cat print comes with a companion mouse print!
