Recently, Rosa called me to say she was at the shop sewing and I could join her if I wanted. Did I want? Of course! So I packed up some hand quilting and found Rosa busy at the sewing machine working on her Strip Street Bag. We both love this pattern. This is the second one that Rosa has made. Don’t you just love the fabrics she is using? I hope to show you a picture of the bag when it is finished as she is using denim fabric from old jeans for the top band. I bet it will be stunning.
Nancy was also there working on her Squedge quilt. The touches of red in this table runner really draws your eyes to this stunning quilt.
This is another project that Nancy is working on. Nancy said she has had the pattern for years and still has blocks to make, and doesn’t remember the name of the pattern or where she got it.
These are close ups of some of the blocks. What a fun quilt.
Vickie S. stopped by while we were at the shop and showed us this darling Welcome wall hanging. She said she and her granddaughter Emily made it. The pattern is from the 9/23/13 issue of Fons & Porter magazine Quilting Celebrations with Patrick Lose.
Remember this? I received this message from Lori’s iPhone yesterday and wanted to tell you what she said. “It was me who made the quilt, Lori Lieffers. It was fun quilt to make and the kit had all the strips cut for you!” Thanks so much Lori for letting us know.
Many thanks and much appreciation goes to the women who work diligently each month to make quilts for those in wheel chairs. Kudos go to: Yvonne, Mary T., Fran, Joan, Mary Ellen, Barb, Lee Ann, Nancy, Mary.
Quilting for Kids With Cancer
Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
This blog is dedicated to the women and men of West Michigan who would like to attend the Attic Window Quilt Classes. This is where you can see the class samples and pictures of the teachers.
