How does your calendar look?  Now is the time to make your plans for next week because there are a lot of fun things happening at the Attic Window Quilt Shop that you are sure to enjoy.  On Tuesday, there is a morning Bee and then at 1 p.m. the Applique Bee meets.  At the Applique Bee a new BOM is being introduced.  Above is the piece I’ve been working on.  I’ll be demonstrating how I do Needle Turn.
And I’ve been prepping these pieces to demonstrate how I do freezer paper appliqué.  You don’t have to use my methods.  There are various ways to do appliqué and you are free to use your method of choice for this fun quilt.  Also, you don’t have to participate in the BOM and are welcome to come to the Bee and do other handwork with us.
On Wednesday the Mod Squad Modern Bee meets.  We are also introducing a new BOM and will be discussing the topic, “What is a Modern quilt?”   Is it solid colors that make it modern?
 If you take a traditional block like above…
And turn it into this…is it Modern?  Come and join us in discussing this fascinating topic and then, if you like, participate in the BOM.  This BOM has 12 “modern” blocks made in the colors and size of your choice.
Saturday is the first Make It Take It of the year.  Each month a different project will be presented.  Above Marilyn shows us the bag we will be making.  If you are interested in participating in the Make It Take It, please call the shop and register.

Check the calendar on the sidebar or the Newsletter here to see more fun happenings at the shop next week. 

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. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I have done freezer paper applique before but for some reason I don't have the patience to sit and do it... Lovely projects and fabrics

Looks like some fun new projects. If a consensus is reached about what makes a quilt "modern" please let us know. I've been asked this and don't have a good answer.

I love your table runners in the last post! Are you going to take any classes at the WM guild next week? I am doing the 2-day with Harriet. Take care!
