The first 2014 Sampler class met Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is a close up of the block we will make this month.  Chris announced that we will continue to meet monthly at 9:30 a.m. and that there would be only one square a month (whew, making three last year took some doing to stay caught up!) Chris distributed directions for the various settings so we can plan ahead. 
The ladies above show the four different fabric kits that are being offered for this sampler quilt.  It was difficult to choose, but I decided on the 30s fabrics. 
Vickie D. showed us her latest finishes.  Above is the Court House Steps baby quilt that she made for a friend.  Love those bright colors!
This is Vickie’s Irish Chain.  It is Queen size and beautiful.  (Sorry about that waste basket in the front)
This pattern is Fire Escape by Atkinson Designs.  It is also Queen size.  The pattern can be found at the shop.  Wow! What wonderful quilts.   Keep an eye on the calendar for Vickie’s classes on these beautiful quilts.

Until next time,
