The first Sampler class of the month was held Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above Julie J. shows us her latest quilt (well, one of them).  I love this quilt.  She fussy cut each one of those chevron pieces.  The blue background looks like denim from a distance but is really a blue cotton with a world map on it.  She said the person she’s giving this quilt has lots of maps in his room.
This is another stunning quilt that Julie made.  Aren’t these colors beautiful!  She said she used a Bali Strip to make this quilt.
Judy D. made this adorable baby quilt.  She’s a new Grandma.  I bet this baby will be getting lots of quilts and lots of love from this new Grandma! Congratulations, Judy! 
Judy R. made this delightful soccer quilt for her Grandson who lives in Oregon.  She said the most difficult part of this pattern was getting the soccer balls on right.
Above is a picture of Judy with her quilt.  Don’t you love that fabric that she found for the back!

ON ANOTHER NOTEThe Bad Ass Quilters Society has a tutorial for some scrap happy bookends.  This would make a great gift, or just a great way to spruce up a room.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
