A VARIETY OF IDEAS

Today I have a little of this and a little of that to show you.  First is this beautiful Wool Mat.  There will be a class on how to make it on Monday, Jan. 27th from 7-9, at the Attic Window Quilt Shop
Above is a picture of the Strip Street Bag.  You can make this bag with Lee Ann on Saturday, Jan. 25th from 10-3.  What a fun bag to make!
Calling all sewers!  You will want to join Marilyn in making this wonderful bag.
When you open the bag you can see all the pockets and special places to keep your sewing supplies.  I’m not sure a date for this class has been set, so watch for further information on making this bag.
I wanted to show you my bag that I made at Chris’s bag class last week!  I made two: one for my daughter and one for my DIL.  The girls were thrilled that I put the black dot fabric on the outside and used the red for the lining.  I love making these bags!
Check out this stunning quilt by Pauline.  She participated in the Cotton Club Freedom Rings BOM last year at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Fantastic!  Kits for this quilt are still available at the shop; however, they are in limited supply.
Remember this block?  Probably not, but it is the one Diana was working on during Happy Scrappers last Saturday.  I posted a picture of all the tiny pieces she was using here.  The nickel next to the block gives you an idea of how small the pieces were.  Great job, Diana!
