Recently I joined the Stitchery Dickory Dock Sugar Block Club.  Above is my first block.  It is paper pieced and I must say that I liked making this paper pieced block much better than I did my last one.  As you may know, I'm not much of a piecer and making these blocks helps me to increase my skills.  It's not too late to make these blocks.  Not all of them are paper pieced.

  • The Bees In The Attic is being formed.  It is a new Bee Hive at the shop.  We could still use another member to make it an even dozen.  Call the shop to sign up and find out about the group.  Our next meeting is May 25.  This is only a one hour meeting, but you can stay and sew with us if you like.
  • Stitch-In, Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21
  • UFO Day, Monday May 23 (note change in date)
  • Bee In The Attic, Wednesday, May 25
  • Come Sew With Me, Wednesday, May 25
  • Folded Star, Thursday, May 26
Be sure and check the calendar on the Sidebar for more happenings at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this week.

I love your new star block! It's been such a long time since I've done paper piecing. I have a paper pieced hearts quilt that has been in the making from waaaaay more than a year. I need to find that sewing bug that seems to be hiding amongst my mail art craze that I can't seem to get enough of. I'm looking forward to seeing this block in a quilt some day.
