 The Heart of Winter Tour was this past weekend with four quilt shops participating in this fun-filled event.  The first bus to arrive at the Attic Window Quilt Shop was from Kalamazoo Quilts Plus.  I snapped a picture of the queen who was the first to get off the bus.
 Here you can see the nice bus driver helping the ladies off the bus.
 As each bus arrived, they had about an hour and a half to shop before they got back on the bus to be driven to their next stop.
 Above, Marilyn gives a demonstration on how to use the Creative Grids Strippy Stars tool.
 Look at all the different size stars you can make with this one tool! You can make blocks in the range of 3 1/2" to 14" unfinished.  What a deal!

The women shopped and then they were on their way.
 Because of previous commitments I was unable to stay the entire day and missed the bus from Portland and the arrival of the Attic Window bus back home where they were treated to dinner.  But I did get back to the shop in time to see the bus from Quilted Memories in Montague arrive.
 There was plenty of time to shop.
  And watch Marilyn's demonstration
 Chris was busy at the cutting table helping a customer.
A very special thanks goes to Chris and all the other participants in this fun event.  These shop owners provided lunch and dinner and snacks and drinks for the bus riders.  I know a lot of time and effort went into planning this event and making sure everyone enjoyed themselves.  I look forward to attending next year.

Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
