I attended Sampler at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Tuesday morning for the first time in a long time.  My goodness I'm going to have to go more often.  Those women are sure productive.  I have lots of pictures to show you. Above Jeannie B. shows us her Independence Day wallhanging.

Jeannie said that when her daughter saw it, she wanted one to drape over her couch. So Jeannie made one for her that is going in a different direction.  Above is Jeannie with the two different quilts that she made.

Jeannie also made this red white and blue table runner.

This is a close up of one of the blocks.

And she made this cute little table topper.  She will be all ready for July next year when it comes to decorating her house.

Gerri showed us this lovely embroidery wall hanging,

This is a close up.  I know it is difficult to see and hope you can see the excellent work that Gerri does.

Gerri also made this quilt and, again, it was difficult to get a picture.  I bet all Michiganders will love it though because it is of light houses and "the bridge."

This is the center block showing the bridge.  If you click on the picture you might get a better view and see the light houses in the other blocks that are embroidered with white thread.

Tammy showed us this adorable baby blanket that she made.

Tammy also made this beautiful heart quilt.  My camera battery must be low because it didn't pick up the lovely colors in this quilt.  I want to make one of these heart quilts.

Tammy provided us with the grand finale by showing us this stunning trip around the world quilt.

A special thank you to all these quilters for letting me share them with you.

I love the Christmas tree with little houses. I may try to put some on my tree this year. This looks like hand embroidery. Is it?
