 The Happy Scrappers met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above Lee Anne shows us what she worked on that day.  What a beautiful charity quilt this will make!
 We can't see the English Paper Piecing that Diana worked on because it is so small.  Diana likes working with small items and does an excellent job of it.  I wish I had her patience.
 Mary G. worked on this lovely quilt.  She said she bought all the fabrics at the Attic Window.  I don't usually work with blues, but I really like this one.  Hope she will bring it back for show-n-tell when it is finished.  Mary is a long arm quilter and I'm sure this quilt will be stunning.
Peggy shows all the paper pieced blocks she made that day...well, maybe she didn't make all of them on Wednesday, but she is really making progress on this quilt. Seeing her blocks makes me want to make another one of these quilts.
I worked on making some placemats for my DIL but forgot to take a picture.  I'll show you once I have the binding on.  After that I practiced on my machine applique.  I need a lot more practice at this. But I am finding it fun, which surprises me since I have always preferred my freezer paper method.

Looks like so much fun! On average, how many come regularly to your scrap group? Just curious.

FUN! But tiny things - I wish I had the dexterity to work on something that small! I've been thinking I'd love to do dollhouse-sized things, but I'd bleed all over them. Glad you're enjoying your machine applique!
