 The Happy Scrappers met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, Adrienne shows us the doll quilt that she just finished.  She said that since we last met she has made about six of these quilts that will go to Santa Clause Girls who wraps them around the dolls that are given to needy children at Christmas.  Adrienne who is a member of the West Michigan Quilters' Guild (WMQG), said that the Guild gives about 450 dolls away each year.  The Guild also donates wrapping time.
 Peggy spread out some of the blocks she has been working on so she could see what fabrics she still needs to add to her quilt.  She is using Kaffe fabrics.
 Paula worked on her cross stitch project.  She did show us this stunning find that she picked up at a second hand shop.  Sorry that you can't tell it from this picture, but this quilt looks brand new! And guess what....
She paid $3.50 for it.  Yes, that is three dollars and fifty cents.  What a deal!
