The Happy Scrappers met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and a good time was had by all!  I can say that because we sure did laugh a lot!  Above, Judi A. shows us her table runner that she made using the One Block Wonder technique.  I love how this is turning out and now want to make several as holiday gifts.
What is Adrienne doing?
Adrienne is showing us the Block Carrier that she made.  She said she decided she needed one to carry her blocks back and forth to Bee.  She looked around her house and created this one all on her own.  This is a wonderful way to save time and get more sewing done.  You can do all the cutting for your blocks while at home, place each block between the dividers in the carrier, and just sew your heart away at Bee!
Paula worked on her pinwheel blocks.  Above she is squaring them up.
Paula also worked on this adorable block.  Don’t you just love those blue birds!
Judi A. continued working on her quilt as you go. This is going to be a stunning quilt.
Catherine showed us this beautiful quilt that she is working on.  She is trying to find the perfect shade of green for the border.  A special thank you to Catherine for providing us with lunch.  She brought home made noodles in a casserole!  Fantastic!
Diana worked on these very small hexagons!  I don’t know how she does it.  Working on something that small would stress me out!  Her work is fantastic! 

A very special thank you goes to Diana for bringing us Tim Tams.  I love these wonderful cookies from Australia and thank her for thinking of me (she brought a couple of packages for me to take home.) ;o)

Adrienne's block carrier is a wonderful idea. Julie's block looks modern and colorful. Love the bluebirds and tiny hexies.
