NEW RUBY SHORT MCKIM FLOWER BASKET BOM

 Do you remember this beautiful quilt block.  I have previously showed it.
 I showed you this block too.  Vickie S. made them and she will be the first teacher for this new BOM.
Above, Chris explains to customers and students about how they too can make these stunning blocks as well as learn new techniques.  These patterns are from McKim Studios.  You can learn a lot when you participate in the Ruby Short McKim Flower Basket BOM which starts at the Attic Window Quilt Shop in October.  These lovely 12" blocks can be made using various techniques, which you will learn throughout the months.  There are 32 blocks in the pattern, which was first designed in 1934 and was printed in newspapers across the country.  The quilt will finish at 80 X 97.  This pattern is not available online and can only be purchased at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and one other shop in Michigan.  The BOM is scheduled to start in October.  Come sit and stitch and learn a new technique each month.  Call the shop to register.

I love Ruby's designs! Are you planning to make the quilt? I bet anyone who takes the class will learn every appliqué method currently in use.
