HAPPY SCRAPPERS ARE HARD AT WORK

 The Happy Scrappers met Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  We had some show-n-tell.  Above, Marti shows us a project bag that she recently made.  The front of this bag is vinyl so you can see at a glance what project you are taking with you to the quilt shop.
 This is a close-up of Marti's bag.  What a great idea.  I have a piece of fabric that I quilted but could never seem to make it into a bag.  Now I know just how I can do that and show off the lovely fabric at the same time.
 Jill shows us two hot pads that she made when taking Marilyn's recent class.  You can read more about Marilyn's class here.

 While sewing that day, Marti made this bowl hot pad.  I think that's what you call them.  I love these and want to make some more.  Marti said that she is surprised at the number of people who have asked her for more of them.

 Lee Anne worked on the bright project.  She is making a bag.  Lee Anne is noted for her wonderful bags and I can't wait to see this one.

 Jill shows us this string of piecing that she worked on that day.  She is making a One Block Wonder quilt.
Sheryl didn't want me to take her picture.  She said she was just making more blocks to add to a quilt that I had previously taken a picture of.  I love her fabrics.

NOTE:
  • The Bees In The Attic is being formed.  It is a new Bee Hiveat 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.
