Participants in the Whimsical Gardens BOM met Tuesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Kits were distributed and above is a picture of the block that we will be working on this month.
 Not everyone had their blocks completed, but Kay, Sandy and Cathy (hiding behind her block) show us their blocks.  They did a great job and I love how each block is unique.  We have only three more blocks to go. This has been a fun group and I can’t wait to show you all their blocks made into quilts.

  • Fall Clean-up Sale will be Friday, October 25th from 10-8 and again Saturday, October 26 from 10-5.  Sale fabrics, books and patterns will be up to 75% off.  
  • The First Annual Jingle Bell Hop will be Monday, Nov. 11 through Saturday, Nov. 16.  The four shops participating are Attic Window, Pressing Matters, Custom Quilts Unlimited, and Queen Bee.
  • Black Friday Stitch-In will be held Friday, Nov. 28, starting at 8 a.m.
  • Craft Day will be held Saturday, Nov. 29, from 9 – 5.  Join us and make some fun Christmas gifts early.  Four to five projects are being planned for the day.  Class time is free but there will be a small fee for project kits.
ON ANOTHER NOTE:  This is interesting.  Toefeather has a tutorial for a Circle of Squares block.  I can see that in solids, but I’d love to try it with scraps from my stash.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

These whimsical garden blocks are so cute! Almost makes me want to do some appliqué - almost.
