QUILTS FROM APRONS TO BAGS

I hurried up to the Attic Window Quilt Shop today to pick up an item, but to also check out that Tuesday Bee.  They always have fun things to share.  I got lucky.  Above is Jeanne’s project.  Jeanne has a 10-year-old granddaughter who loves to bake.  The last time they were together Jeanne thought she needed an apron and promised to make her one.  Knowing that she would see her granddaughter again this coming Mother’s Day, Jeanne got busy and made aprons…one for her granddaughter, Sophie; one for herself, and one for Sophie’s American Girl doll!  Adorable! 

This is a close up of the one for the doll.  Jeanne said the pattern came from the Quilt In A Day’s book Quilts From El’s Kitchen by Eleanor Burns that I blogged about here
 Check out the little handkerchief in each pocked.  These came from Jeanne’s vintage hanky collection. 
 Jeanne also showed us this darling Mother’s Day card that her daughter made for her.  What talent.
 When I visited the Shop that day, Jeanne was working on this quilt block.  I think she said it was an Edyta Sitar pattern.  Beautiful!
 Geri also had something to show me.  When she showed me this block, I thought, how beautiful and how did she make it?
 Then she showed me that it is three separate blocks made with striped fabrics.  This pattern is Home On The Range and can be found in the April issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine.  My mind immediately started racing…I have that magazine and remember seeing that quilt.  It features stripes and plaids.  What fun!
 Judi A. has been at it again. She made another Classmate Tri-Fold bag.  This one is for Peggy.
 This is the outside.  Judi does fantastic work and I love those fabrics!  If you'd like to make one of these bags, you can take a class from Marilyn on May 22 from 10-2.  You will love this bag!

ON ANOTHER NOTE:  For all you happy scrappers out there, Fabric Therapy has a tutorial for a strippy scrappy flippy happy block.
 
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
