The first meeting of the November 2013 Sampler series was held Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above are the blocks we will be working on during this month.  Kits and instructions were distributed.  Now if I can just follow them.  
There was a lot going on Saturday to make me forget anything Chris said during the instructions. I got excited when Judy R. showed us her latest quilt.  The pattern is the disappearing 9 patch.  I love all this wonderful color.
Judy R. also showed us this darling Santa quilt. 
Julie showed us this adorable baby blanket that she just finished.  I love these fabrics.

Chris had some demos for us, as well as the following announcements. (I’ll show the demos later this week.)

  • 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: Therm-o-web has a tutorial for a cute shabby chic flower pillow.  Great gift idea.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
