UNEXPECTED HAPPINESS

When Rosa unexpectedly called me on Saturday to say she was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop sewing and would like some company, I gathered my hand quilting and joined her.  I found Rosa working on this owl quilt.  It is so cute.  She said that this is Eric’s quilt.  Eric is her son (a grown man) and he asked her to make a quilt for his friends who have been trying for years to have a baby and finally discovered one is on the way!  Eric came into the shop and picked out all of the fabrics himself.  He wants Rosa to put a few words on the back of the quilt…”We’ve been waiting for you.”  How cute!  This pattern is called Abby’s Owl Quilt.  I’m sorry but I forget to get the name of the publisher.  What a special young man Rosa has raised to want to select the fabrics and have a quilt made for his friends.
During the afternoon Rosa and I sewed and gabbed and visited with various customers.  When Melanie P. came in with this darling quilt, I had to take a picture!  She just calls the pattern Houses, and said she got it from Quilt Mania Magazine several years ago.
This is a close up of one of the house blocks.  I bet this was fun to make!

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.  
  • This is interesting.  Sophie Junction has a tutorial for a summer tote made of orphan blocks.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
