IT'S GETTING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE REINDEER TIME

Saturday when I was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop taking a bag class, Laurie Schoebridge stopped in with this quilt.  I was so thrilled to see it as the blocks were free on this blog several years ago.  You may remember that Barb of Bejeweled Quilts and I shared these blocks with our readers.  She made the quilt in appliqué and I did my reindeer blocks in Redwork, as Laurie did.
Check out this close-up of one of Laurie’s blocks.  It is so cute! You can’t see it in the picture but she also added some silver metallic thread to the snowflakes.  She did a fantastic job of making this fun quilt and I was overjoyed that I was in the shop when she stopped by.  You can still get the patterns for these reindeer blocks by going here or here.  However, there is now a small fee for the patterns. ALL of the money made from the sale of these patterns goes to Judy and Clint Madsen for the Children of Romania.    I hope you will consider making this quilt or making the blocks into pillows and contributing to this very worthy cause.

A special thank you to Laurie for sharing this quilt with us.  I love it!

DON’T FORGET:
  • To mark your calendar for the West Michigan Quilters’ Guild Quilts on the Grand.  The date is October 3 – 5 at the DeltaPlex Arena.
  • On Thursday, October 9th at 10:00 A.M., Vickie will be holding a finishing class for her spiral lone star for anyone who has previously taken the class with her and who needs some extra help with the finishing steps. 
  • Shop Swap – Attic Window Quilt Shop and Quilted Memories – October 19 and 26
ANOTHER NOTE
The Busy Bean has a tutorial for an organizing bucket.  I think I need one of these for my car.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
