HAPPY SCRAPPERS MEET

The Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop Wednesday and a fun time was had by all!  There was even some dancing (again) but all my pictures of the dancers came out blurry.  However I do have lots of pictures I think you will like.  First up is Lee Anne.  She made this beautiful Batik quilt.
This is a close up of one of the blocks. This fabric is stunning!
These blocks are made from the Bali Tiles package by Hoffman Fabrics.  The package contains 10 precuts, each 12” X 43/44” of Hand painted Batik.
Vickie showed us this delightful quilt.
This is a close up of one of the blocks.  I was trying to get a close up of the various light colored fabrics used to make the diagonal across the quilt.  Love those fabrics.  Sorry, I did not get the pattern name.
Remember last month when I told you about the quilt that Rosa was making for her son’s friends who are expecting?  Above she is stitching the saying that is going on the back of the quilt.
And here is Rosa with the appliqué all finished and ready to go on the back of the quilt.  Great job Rosa!
Catherine quilted this adorable quilt.

Catherine also worked on this quilt during the day.  It is quite large and above she has laid it out to see if all the squares looked right.  Looks fantastic to me!
This is just a hint of what is taking place at the Attic Window on Thursday.  Vickie is teaching the One Block Wonder class.  As I have said before, Vickie is the best teacher ever and if you get a chance to take a class from her, you should jump at it.  I know several of us Happy Scrappers cannot attend the class tomorrow but Vickie has agreed to set another date for another class, so if you are interested, watch for that class on an upcoming calendar.

ON ANOTHER NOTE
  • Did you go check out the Row By Row Shop Hop website.  This is a must for anyone traveling this summer.  You won’t want to miss this. 
  • Laugh Yourself Into Stitches has an interesting tutorial on the Magic 8.  I have to try this.
Until next time,
Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
