When I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last Thursday the Doll Bee was in session.  Naturally I had to take some pictures.  Above is the darling doll that Shirley S. is making.  I may be wrong, but I think call this a Hitty doll.
Barb V. shows us her work in process.  I’m a doll person and go crazy when I see these.
This is Shirley working on her doll.  You can read more about the Doll Bee by going to Julie’s blog.  There is also a link on the sidebar.

The first session is on Saturdays, June 21 and June 28, from 10-2.  Another two-week session is on Thursdays, June 26th and July 10th.  The class is $30.  Check out the sample for this wonderful wall hanging, or table topper at the shop.  Or you can see Vickie’s quilt here.

These are just a few of the fun events at the Quilt Shop.  Check the calendar on the sidebar daily for new class additions.

  • 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 it.   
  • The Selvage Blog has a tutorial for an Asterisk Quilt.  You do not need to use selvages for this block.
Until next time,

I'm not a doll person but I can appreciate the work and talent required to make one. They are lovely!
