The Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild is having an online activity.  You can read about it here.  I want to participate and made the above Paper Pieced Kaleidoscope Block as my contribution.  Any participant posting online or bringing blocks to the November meeting will be entered in a drawing to win all the blocks!  Wouldn’t that be fun to win all the blocks?  Check out the Great lakes Modern Quilt Guild for the pattern and instructions to participate.

  • 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: Ems Scrapbag has a method to her madness.  Check out this lovely tutorial for making an Aster block.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
