 Wednesday was a busy morning at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  First, the Bees In The Attic Bee Hive met.  Above is Queen Bee for this month, Cheryl.

 Last month Cheryl gave us instructions and fabrics to make these blocks for her.

 Above is a closeup of Cheryl's blocks.  That one little odd square on the left is a signature block.  I think this is going to make a lovely quilt.
Next month Lee Anne is Queen Bee and she has asked us to make this block.  Can't wait to see this quilt.
 Next up, the Quilt Block Cookbook BOM group met.  Cathy explained the BOM and went over the book by Amy Gibson that we will be using.  Above is a sample block that everyone will make from the kits distributed today.
 Above, Cathy is explaining things to the group.

 Chris gives a demonstration on using the Creative Grids flying geese ruler.

 We had some show-n-tell too.  Above, Shirley shows us her latest bag.  She used the Beach Bag kit that is available at the shop.  Shirley said this is her first attempt at applique.  What a great job she did!  The UCHS is for Unity Christian High School where her grandson plays football.  Shirley appliqued his jersey number 21 on the back of the bag, which she carries to all his ball games. Great job Shirley!
 Tammy Huff finished her Snow Globes quilt.  the pattern is by Crab Apple Hill.
This is a closeup of her adorable snow globe.  Wonderful!!
