Are you ready for the August Sampler at the Attic Window Quilt Shop?  Above is my block which we were to make during July and take back to the August meeting.  The shop makes kits of various fabrics: batiks, brights, Civil War, 30s.  As you can see, I have chosen to make my blocks from the 30s fabrics.  You can see other samples in a previous post here.  The first of the August Sampler series is this Saturday at the shop.  Can you believe it will be August?  Where has the summer gone?  Yikes!

  • Big Blocks – Vickie D. will be teaching this one week class on Thursday, July 31 from 5-9 p.m.  It is easy to piece this lap size quilt that is 72 ½” square.  Class fee is $15.
  • Squedge Tool – Vickie S. will be teaching us how to use this new tool!  On Thursday, August 7th, from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. we will learn how to use this tool and make a table topper or table runner (your choice).  Or you can take the class when Vickie teaches it again on Friday, August 15th from 10-2.  The fee for each class is $10.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

This is such a fun block to make and so effective. We made an awesome quilt for our friend, Doris, with this block. All my friends contributed some blocks. It was so scrappy and beautiful!
