SATURDAY HAPPY SCRAPPERS SHOW STOPPERS

Several months ago the Happy Scrappers made Christmas ornaments from scraps.  They have been on display at the Attic Window Quilt Shop so customers could vote on which they liked best.  This past Saturday the winners were announced.  Above is the winning ornament.  It was made by Judy F.  The Shop presented Judy with a gift certificate for the winning prize.
These are the ornaments entered in the contest.
There was a tie between second and third place.  The shop presented those winners each with this nice packet of fabric, candy and a lint roller.  Thanks Chris for these great gifts!
Another wonderful thing happened.  Above, Rosa (left), hugs Val (right) and is thanking Val for this darling bag that she made and gave to Rosa.  Val said it is for Rosa’s granddaughter to carry her dolls in.  Aren’t quilters the best!!
Remember those blocks I showed you yesterday that Adrienne was making from her pile of scraps?  This is what she is making with those blocks.  It’s going to be another stunning quilt by Adrienne!
Sheryl is working on her table runner.  This pattern and some of the fabric were in our Craft Day kits.
Chris showed us this adorable pillowcase that she made for her grandchild.
Above are three more pillow cases waiting for the names to be applied.  Chris said she is sorry, but there is no more of this snowmen fabric in the store!  Darn!
 Jill M. stopped in the shop and showed us this beautiful quilt.
 Look at the monkeys quilted on her quilt!
 Jill M. also showed us another scrappy quilt.  I love that scrappy look!
 Above is part of the group sewing and socializing.  Such a fun group.  Won’t you join us next year?
