LOTS TO SHOW AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP


When I was at the Shop earlier this week, Mary T. showed me this fantastic quilt.  Above is a closeup of one of the blocks. 
And this is the entire quilt.  Mary said that she loves Alaska and loves going there as often as she can.  She bought the fabric for this quilt while visiting this beautiful part of the USA.

 Diana was recently at the Tuesday Bee and took some pictures, which she graciously sent me.  I love it when people do that!  I can’t be there all the time and I hate not being able to show all the awesome work these women do! 
Above Julie B. shows us her splendid “Cross My Heart” quilt from the book Scrap Basket Beauties.
 Kathy Boomgaard shows us this lovely Lil’ Twister quilt.  Beautiful fabrics, especially for this time of year.
Judi A. shows us her recently finished ruler bag.  Love those fabrics she used in her bag!
Gerry shows us her finished quilt.  I previously posted a picture of this quilt in its earlier stage.  Gerry does beautiful work and I wish I could have seen it for real.  The pattern is from the March/April issue of McCall’s Quilting Magazine.

ANOTHER NOTE
I hate to think about this.  I’m not ready for this.  But “this” will come, like it or not.  So why not start now on those decorations for the Christmas holidays.  Little Miss Shabby has patterns for Deck The Halls Placemats.  Scroll down to get the links.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
