 Who wants to think about Santa and Christmas when it is hot and humid?  Well, really, now is the time to think about the upcoming holidays.  It takes time to make all those pretty holiday items and gifts.  If you don't want to start the actual sewing, now is at least the time to start thinking about what you want to make and draft a plan.  I found just the thing to help you with that planning.  This adorable pattern just arrived at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  It is Jolly Old Saint Nick by Art To Heart.  You can make a 60” x 61” quilt, or make a pillow.  I thought three of these blocks would make a darling table runner, don’t you?
 Aren’t these frogs adorable?  I love frogs.  This is part of the Timeless Treasures Kidz line.  Look at all the coordinating fabrics.  Check these out at the shop.
 This is a close up of those cute little frogs.
 I think I’ve shown this fabric before, but I don’t think I saw these coordinating fabrics with it.  This line is Bugolicious from Blank Quilting.
 This is a close up of the bugs, but check out that stripe in the picture above.  I love that too!
I also saw a new must-have book.  Angles with Ease:  Simple Solutions to Kaleidoscope Quilts is by Heather Mulder Peterson for Anka’s Treasures.  I can’t wait to try some of these exciting patterns.

  • The Shop will be closed on Monday, September 2nd, in observance of the Labor Day Holiday.
  • Teachers please get your upcoming classes on the calendar ASAP.  A reader said she’d like to learn how to hand sew. 
  • Mark your calendar now for the next Stitch-In which will be held September 20th and 21st.

ON ANOTHER NOTE: Remember the Jiffy Jelly Quilt that Barb made and I showed you yesterday?  I found the pattern at United Notions.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
