I promised to show you more of the happenings at the Happy Scrappers’ meeting held Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I couldn’t wait to show you this photo above.  Judi A. is holding her Sampler block.  She received the kit and instructions earlier in the week and decided to make her large block during our meeting on Wednesday.  What a hoot!  I think Judi did a little too much talking as this is NOT how the block should look!  LOL  I have to laugh because it looks like mine that I posted about last week!  Judi said she may leave this block as is and call it her “one” mistake in the quilt! Sounds good to me!
Above is a picture of the two smaller blocks that we are to make for Sampler this month.
I got a giggle out of Judi.  She made me feel so good knowing that a talented lady like her can make a mistake too.  Remember, Judi made all those cute little pins that I showed in the last post.  Above, is a display of some of Judi’s little coin purses.  Just look at all these little darlings.
Look at how tiny this one is.  I can’t imagine putting a zipper in something this small!  Someone asked Judi what one could do with this and she said, “Put a penny in it.” 
Can you guess what this is?  Judi said her husband wanted to know what she was going to do with his duck tape.
She made a coin purse out of it!  See the penny?  What a talent!
Here is another coin purse.  This one is more feminine with a cute ruffle down the front.
You’re probably wondering what the heck this is.  It is that little round coin purse that you see next to the brown coin purse in the first picture of all the it unzipped, of course.
Isn’t this little purse with the flower on the front awesome?   Thanks Judi for sharing all your little coin purses with us.  You are a talented lady.  And, remember, I’m laughing with you and not at you.

DON’T FORGET:  The next Stitch-In at the Attic Window Quilt Shop will be held September 20th and 21st.

ON ANOTHER NOTEKitchen Table Quilting has a tutorial for a Striped Chevrons Quilt Top.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Judi is one talented lady!! I can make the same error and I can be in my sewing room alone. I don't have to be talking in a group. Love all her projects. Thank you so much for sharing.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day!!
