The Happy Scrappers met Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Above, Lee Anne shows us what she worked on that day.  It is now ready to be sandwiched and quilted.  These brilliant fabrics are from Watercolors Bali Pops by Hoffman.
We also had someone quite new visiting the AW Quilt Shop that day.  This is Chris's (shop owner) grand daughter.  She's four months old and adorable!
After baby Mara left and we stopped ohooing and ahhing, we got back to the business of quilting.  Above, Marti shows up this stunning quilt.  She finished adding the binding and it is ready to be given to her friend.
Marti also showed us this beautiful bag that she made.  As I recall she said the pattern is from an old Fons and Porter magazine.  I love those fabrics she used.
Sheryl worked on making this eye catching quilt.  It is going to be beautiful!
 Nancy participated in the Ruby Short McKim Flower Baskets BOM a while ago.  Now she is busy adding the baskets to her embroidery.
This is a close up of one of Nancy's blocks.  Can't wait to see the finished quilt!
I caught Jill at the ironing board.  She  is making a table runner.  Love these Christmas fabrics.
 Jill also showed us this new panel that is in at the shop.  It is Jolly Old St. Nicholas by Northcott Fabrics.  Get it now so it will be quilted and finished by Christmas.
This is the pattern that is available to instruct you on adding the borders.  Better pick it up now at the shop because I'm sure these panels won't last long.

  • Another date/time has been added for the Quilt Block Cookbook BOM.  We have added an evening session for this new group.  That first evening session will be held Monday, September 26, at 6 p.m.  The day session will be held Wednesday, September 28, 11 a.m.  Call the shop to register so we will be sure to have enough kits available.
