What do you think of these blocks?
And these?
 These darling blocks are from the book El’s Kitchen by Eleanor Burns.  A new BOM based on this book will begin at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on September 1st.  A lot more sample blocks are on display at the shop.  Stop in or call the shop to register and get more details.
This is another BOM that has just started at the shop.  Marilyn will be teaching this Civil War BOM.  Kits are $15 and you can pick up the kits any time during the month.  You can also come and cut and sew with Marilyn on the Third Wednesday of each month.  Call the shop to register.

  • HAPPY SCRAPPERS meets this Saturday at the shop.  Anyone interested in this fun Bee is welcome to attend.
  • Vickie S. will be teaching you how to use the Squedge 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.
  • AQS Quilt Week in Grand Rapids begins Wednesday, August 20th, at DeVos Place Convention Center.
  • Did you go check out the Row By Row Shop Hop website?  This is a must for anyone traveling
  • Do you like making something for free.  Use your scraps to make lovely blocks like the one at Sweet Grass Designs. 
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
