CAN YOU MAKE A QUILT LIKE THIS?

 There was more going on at the Attic Window Quilt Shop yesterday that I didn't get to show you.  Above is Vickie Stark's latest bargello quilt.  The pattern is Diamonds Jubliee.  It is stunning!
 This is a close up of Vickie's quilt.  I guess it still needs a border and quilting and binding but I have been pestering her for days to let me take a picture.  Awesome!
 Joyce showed us her Christmas Quilt.  The pattern is from the Jelly Roll Quilt book and is called Pineapple Surprise.
 Yesterday, I worked on these pillowcases for Scrappers Schoolhouse which meets on Saturday, Oct. 24.  Since I will be unable to attend, I took home some kits that Rosa had put together.  These red, white, and blue pillowcases will go to Veterans in Hospice.  I must add, that the pillowcase on the far left is unfinished.  I goofed and sewed it the wrong way and didn't want to un-stitch, so Diana is going to finish the seams with her serger.  Thank you Diana!
Jerri Gill came into the shop to pick up her quilt that Carol Huster had quilted for her.  Jerri graciously let me take a picture.  Though it is very like the one Vickie made above, it is a different pattern.  This is a lovely quilt and I wish I had the patience to do all that quilting.

DON’T FORGET:
  • NYB Table Topper, Friday, Oct. 16
  • Stitch-In, Saturday, Oct. 17
ON ANOTHER NOTE:
I really like the looks of curved piecing that Cathy showed us how to do yesterday.  For those of you who do not have the ruler I thought this would be a great place to start.  Spring Leaf Studios had a quilt along and the instructions and templates are here.
