This is a continuation of the Happy Scrappers meeting this past Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I thought this deserved a post all its own.  Judi A. made this bag.  The fabric was so lovely and caught my eye.  “What’s this,” I asked her.
Judi opened the bag and showed me the inside!  Look carefully at all the items behind the clear plastic.
“What is that round thing with all the neat little folds,” I asked.
Judi took it from its secure place, did a little twist and showed me that it is a thread catcher.
“And what is that little square thingy,” I asked.
She opened it and showed me her needle book.  This is so clever I promptly asked about the pattern because I have to make one.  The pattern is called Classmate by Atkinson Designs. 

Judi also told me about a radio podcast that you might be interested in.  She said she could listen to it for hours.  This is the email she forwarded to me:

LMS has posted a new item, 'American Patchwork and Quilting Radio'

This afternoon I'm a guest on American Patchwork and Quilting Radio with Pat Sloan.  You can listen live by clicking this link at 4pm eastern, 3pm central, 2pm mountain, & 1pm pacific.  If you miss the live show you can listen later on your computer, subscribe by iTunes (search American Patchwork and Quilting), or download [...]  You may view the latest post at Little Miss Shabby.
Have a great day listening.

  • 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: Free Quilt Patterns has a pattern for a tidy by Laura Wilhelm.  Looks like a nice gift to make.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!



Judi, has created some very unique lovely and useful creations. Hugs Judy

I've made two Classmates, one as a store sample and one for me to use. It is a nice pattern.

I love that bag! I think I have that pattern. Lynne sent it to me after she made one and I asked her to get the pattern for me! :-) I want to make one!
