When a friend calls to say, “come sew with me,” does it make you feel all tingly and excited?  That's how I felt when I got an call from Rosa to tell me she was at the shop and I should come sew with her.  I eagerly grabbed up my latest applique project and headed for the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I can't tell you how happy I was that she called.  Sewing with friends is a day without stress.  It is like eating chocolate chips cookies all day and not having to worry about calories!  I was so glad I went too, because I got to see this darling bag that Rosa has been making.
This is a close-up of the bag.  Don’t you just love that Rosa used fabric from an old pair of jeans for the top of the bag?  It really sets off those bright colors.Rosa also worked on getting this fabric quilted in preparation for our Ruler Bag Class with Vickie S. this coming Saturday.  Have you signed up for that one?
Lee Anne was there sewing too.  She showed us this Jelly Roll quilt that she had finished.
Yvonne was there too and she showed us her Jelly Roll quilt too.  Both of these quilts are from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott.  The name of the pattern is Sparkling Gemstones. 
Nancy was there working on blocks for a church quilt.
Diana was there working on her “bird” blocks.  She said that she thinks she has enough for a bed runner.  I’m looking forward to seeing this!

What a wonderful way to spend the day with friends.  Call a friend to come sew with you and make her day!
