HAPPY SCRAPPERS HAVE FUN AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP


The Happy Scrappers met last Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  A fun time was had by all.  Above are Jana Lee’s focus paper pieced squares.  Aren’t they adorable?  Note the PS I love you on the top square!
It was a large group Saturday.  I love it when quilters get together.  Lots of giggles and fun stories.
No, this is not Jana Lee doing the happy dance.  It is Jana Lee doing a yoga pose. I won’t tell you what conversation precipitated it.  You will have to go to Stephanie’s blog to read about that.  I don’t know when she will be posting so keep checking her blog or keep watch for updates from Peas In A Pod on my sidebar.  As I said, a fun time was had by all.
Stephanie joined us and it was so good to see her again.  Above Stephanie (from Peas In A Pod) shows us the little over the shoulder bag she made for a teenager.  She had this simple little bag finished before noon!
Here is a close up of this cute bag with a zipper in the front and a pocket in the back.  Any teenager would love to have a bag like this!
Judy F. made these bow tie blocks.  They are all done by hand.
 
Judy also made these fantastic pieces.  It amazes me how she can do such intricate work on these small items.  They are for a little sewing pouch that she has.
Vickie D. was working on this beautiful flag quilt. It is all hand stitched.  
Paula was working on this All Stars quilt by Cozy Quilt Designs.  The fabrics she has chosen for this quilt are superb.
Above Paula auditions fabrics for the borders.  
Peggy shows us the table topper she made while at the Bee.  The pattern is Uneven Nine Patch.  What a lovely table topper.
Last but not least is Adirenne’s quilt.  I showed you a picture when I posted about last Wednesday’s Bee.  She’s making progress.  Note the tub of strips she still has left!
I had to show you this.  At the end of the day, Adrienne gets into her little MG and tools off.  Above she is loading up her car.
Note the cute sticker on the side (left) and her license plate!  MGA 4 ME.  
Here she is heading out.   Don’t you just love this?  I bet she and her husband have a great time on those road trips with their MG car club.
 
That’s all for today folks!
 
ON ANOTHER NOTECraft Buds has a tutorial for a square in a square paper piecing block.  I think I’ll have to try this.
 
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

What a great group of talented ladies! That bag Stephanie made looks very similar to the one my mom and I made on her last visit.
