A REAL ONE BLOCK WONDER!

Don’t you just love this peacock!  I recently took the picture when at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

I don’t know if the fabric is at the shop, but it is the fabric that Vickie S. used to make this beautiful quilt.  It is a One Block Wonder.  Watch for Vickie’s classes in the New Year.
 These are placemats that Vickie is making.  She will also be teaching a class on these “Set For The Season” placemats.  
Above she shows us her beginning of another placemat with winter fabrics.   
This is another Lone Star Swirl quilt that Vickie just finished.  She is not only a fantastic teacher, but she has a gift for choosing the right fabrics!
 
SHOP NEWS:
  • A new Seasonal Sampler is planned. NOTICE:  I need to clarify some things because I was confused. The new Sampler starts in January.  It is the same as last year in that you will use the tool to make a block each month and have a large quilt at the end of the year.  The reason you are to sign up for a season is because that will be your color choice!!!  If you signed up for winter, the fabrics in your kits will be in winter fabrics.  You will receive autumn fabrics if you signed up for the autumn season, and etc.  Call the shop if I’ve confused you more.
  • A new Applique BOM is planned, as is a Modern BOM
  • There will also be a Make It and Take It project planned each month. 
  • Mark your calendar now for the Heart of Winter Tour on February 7th.   The bus will take you to four different shops.  Lunch and dinner are included. 
  • New classes are also planned.  Please check your supply list before coming to class and don't forget your rulers, cutters, mats, etc. 
  • New Year's Day SALE:  There will be a sale on New Year’s Day from 12 noon to 4 p.m
ON ANOTHER NOTE: 
  • Esch House (a Michigan blog) has a tutorial for a lovely holiday table mat.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
