COOKBOOK BOM SHOW THEIR BLOCKS



The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM group met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above the ladies show the block they made for this month.
Above is the sample I made of the block we will be making this month.  It is recipe #2, Cherry On Top, page 24 in the Quilt Block Cookbook.  Kits were distributed and you will see that this is a relatively easy block.  The one thing I did caution people on was cutting the striped fabric.  Make sure your stripes are all going the same way as you cut each piece.

BEE IS A BUZZING AT THE ATTIC WINDOW

The Bees In The Attic bee hive met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  It was the first day of a new Bee.  Members of the previous bee brought their quilts for show-n-tell.  Above, Shirley shows us her quilt.  As I recall, Shirley gave each member of the hive the red fabrics and some of the white/cream fabrics.  She told us to add the blues and whites to complete our blocks.  It is amazing how all the blocks came together to make this stunning quilt.
Above, Peggy shows us her finished quilt.  She gave us the Kaffe Fassett fabrics and told us to add the whites and creams from our stash.  What a beautiful quilt!
Above, Charity shows us her flimsy.  She had asked us to use the fabric in the kits she distributed to make the Coins In The Fountain block from the book Irish Chain Quilts by Melissa Corry.  What a lovely quilt.  I can't wait to see how she quilts it.
I don't think Cathy was too happy with me taking pictures when she was trying to talk.  However, she graciously volunteered to be the first Queen in this new Bee, so I had to take her picture.  Today she distributed kits for us to make the Flutter Pattern from the Fat Quarter Book (page 48-51).  This is an easy block.  Just don't forget to make your angles so they kiss!

NEWS!  I'm sure you all have heard of Christmas In July.  Well, the Attic Window Quilt Shop is going to be different.  The shop is having Halloween In July!  How different is that!  You won't say Boo to this....Stop in anytime during the month of July and receive a free Halloween pattern for a table topper!  While there, be sure to check out the specials on Halloween fabrics, patterns, etc.

A FUN UFO DAY AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

When I saw the Scrap Bin Geese Block Tutorial I sent it to Adrienne.  She called me right away and said, "Let's try this.  Meet me at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Monday.  I have lots of low volume fabric and you can bring your brights and we'll have fun."  I checked the shop calendar and noticed it was UFO day so I figured why not.  We had a great time making these blocks and plan to make more when we get together for Happy Scrappers.  If you'd like to join in, Quilter's Diary has an excellent here.

Nancy was there today working on these beautiful Rose of Sharon blocks.
And Pauline was there making this lovely table runner and place mats.  I can't wait to see these finished.

A READER'S QUILT

Hello everyone!  The picture of the beautiful quilt above was sent to me by Marjorie. You may remember she is the reader who asked the recent question about sewing room organization.    Here is what she says:  "The photo is the quilt I just finished.  The photo doesn't show the colors as bright as they really are.

I bought a couple of new storage boxes and have been working on organizing.  I think one of the ways to help me remember where things are is to always return them to the same place I got them.

We had an exciting week, we had a fire start across the freeway from our house.  Lots of fire people, helicopters and air tankers dropping retardant .  They got the big blaze out the same day, just little hot spots left.  It was nothing  like the Brian Head fire that is about 30,000 acres burned  and still growing.  It has been brutal heat and was 114 degrees in St George,  but only 109 degrees here on the back porch!  Hope the heat wave breaks soon.

Stay cool in Michigan.
Happy sewing
Marjorie"

Yikes!  109 degrees!  I can't imagine that and just hearing it makes me thankful I live in Michigan.

A special thank you to Marjorie for sharing with us.  It is always nice to see and hear from fellow quilters.

Don't forget the new summer hours at the Attic Window Quilt Shop  are Monday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday  10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 I may have shown these before but they caught my eye again and I had to show them.  The line is Anything Goes by Contempo.
And these brilliant colors are from the Sun Valley line by Kanvas.

A THANK YOU AND NEW START!

Doing applique prep work this weekend.  I know I'm on the mend because I could not stand it one more minute.  I had to go down to my sewing room and get started on a new project.  Whoopee!

    "Thank you for getting my question answered.  It is true finding something you didn't know was lost while looking for something else.
      My project for next month is to organize using the clear plastic boxes.  I think I need to de-junk my sewing projects/patterns.  I have in folders patterns going back to 1968!  After reading the suggestions I know I just try to keep too much stuff!!
        I am also getting a tray for my sewing area to keep the small things in.
          A big thanks to you and your readers for the help, now I just need to get busy.
            I finally did find Ellie.  In the last place I looked!!!! It had slid under a stacking bin I keep on the top of the filing cabinet to hold current projects.  I had to lift up the bin to find it.
              Thank you for your help and suggestions.
                Happy sewing,  Marjorie"

                NEW FABRIC AT THE ATTIC WINDOW

                This table was full of new bolts of fabric when I recently walked into the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I  got so excited and had to share them with you.
                Above is Hello Jane by Windham Fabrics.
                This is Glamour by Timeless Treasurers.
                New Christmas fabric is in too!  I didn't realize it when I took the picture but this includes two different lines.  Above is Noel by Windham Fabrics and Merry Berry and Bright by RJR.
                I know I usually go for the brights, but this fabric really speaks to me.  I love these luscious colors.  On the left is Antique Cotton Calicos and on the right is Conestoga Crossing.  These Civil War fabrics are by Marcus.
                These can also be used with the Christmas fabrics.  Above is Shiny Objects Holiday Twinkle by RJR
                Wow!  Talk about bright!  I love these.  They are Ambrosia by Timeless Treasurers.
                And last, but not least, is Wallpaper and Paint by Marcus.  Again, these subtle colors really speak to me.

                Stop in at the shop soon and pick up some of these awesome fabrics!

                Adrienne worked on her hand applique blocks during the day.  I love the bright fabrics she is using for these blocks.
                It was so nice to see Janalee again.  She is enjoying her retirement.  Love her block.  She has asked for a freezer paper applique class which we will be teaching on Wednesday afternoon, July 26.  Hope you will join us for this make it take it project.
                To all you Happy Scrappers who were out playing in this beautiful weather today and did not join our group...well, you snooze you loose.  Above, Chris shows us the little flag kit she gave us in honor of Flag Day.

                ANSWERS, TIPS, SUGGESTIONS

                In case you were wondering, these four small snowball squares are what I accomplished last week while at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I think I was too busy talking, catching up with all that's been happening with my fellow quilters over these past few months.  Sure is good to get back into the swing of things.

                On another note:  Remember last week when a fellow quilter asked this question:

                "I have the problem. At home I am always looking for my quilting patterns, rulers, scissors etc.... I put things away and can't remember where...  Do any readers in quilting land have any suggestions or ways to keep track of things.  The latest is, I looked at my pattern of Ellie the elephant, a BJcreations pattern.  Now I can't find it?   I knew where it was for ten years, now I can't find it.

                I look forward to hearing suggestions from you and other quilters at the Attic.
                Thanks
                Marjorie"


                We received several interesting and helpful suggestions and I wanted to share them with you.


                • Joyce writes:  I find the things I could not find when I am looking for something else!  (Isn’t that so true!)
                • Julie (Teacher at the Attic Window Quilt Shop)writes:  Hi Carol! I have been keeping all my sewing supplies in see thru bins on a shelf. It's easy to see what's in the bin (shoe box size or bigger) on the shelf. On a separate shelf, in notebooks, I keep all my patterns I have used. I have a separate notebook for my favorite ones....the ones I make often for gifts, etc. My new patterns (ones I want to make) I keep in a see thru bin on my shelf. I see them every time I walk into my sewing room. On another shelf, I keep fabric, folded up and stacked by color. Ok, this isn't so neat right at the moment, but usually I can see all the fabric easily and grab what I need. If there is overflow, the larger yardage goes into bins I can see thru and that gets stacked up.My sewing tools, I keep in a revolving chef tool holder. It has about a dozen slots for things like scissors, small rulers, pens, pencils, marking pens, doll making gadgets, etc. For smaller tools, I have empty talenti ice cream containers, which are see thru. I keep small clippers, stitch rippers, etc - stuff I need to keep handy when I sew. Funny, it seems like I need another one of those empty ice cream containers for something now and then, so I have to buy the ice cream to get it.   They stack on top of each other nicely, too.   Great for buttons, bobbins, and what not too. The best thing though, was switching to see thru container, boxes and bins. Now I can see everything at a glance and no pulling out boxes, just to see what's in it.   I can't wait to hear what ideas others send you. That was a great question for the blog.
                • Lynn at Alamosa Quilter writes:  I keep a lot of patterns in digital format on my iPad. I've had the iPad for several years and haven't lost it yet. Printed patterns seem to get lost underneath other stuff in my sewing room, but I keep better track of my iPad since I use it for lots of other things. 
                • Yvonne writes:  I use a silverware drawer tray along side my sewing machine.  I use the compartments for scissors, small rulers, marking pen/pencils, sewing machine needles, my glue etc.  Also one of those plastic roll around drawers for extra pins, scissors, cutters, needles etc.  If no room in the sewing room they have those small plastic drawers table tops.
                • Allie of Allie Oops Sweet Happy Life writes:  I lose things too - the only suggestion I can make is to keep "like" items together. All books in one spot, all patterns, all threads, etc. That way, if you're looking for a pattern, you don't have to look through everything. 
                A very special thank you to all who responded.  I know these helpful suggestions have me looking at things differently.

                HAPPY SCRAPPERS MEETS AT ATTIC WINDOW

                When the Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Saturday, Val had this stunning quilt to show us. She said it is a Judy Niemeyer pattern called Bali Wedding Wring.  It is paper pieced.
                This is a closeup.  Val said that it is a king size quilt that she made for her son.  When I asked her how long it took her to make it, she said that she worked on it for eight hours a day for about six to nine months.  As she talked about making the quilt I could tell that a lot of thought went into creating this beauty.
                This is the back of the quilt where  you can see the wonderful quilting.  It was quilted by Joan Kracker.
                Jill had this adorable baby quilt to show us.
                During the day, Jill worked on making the above block.
                She placed several of the blocks together so we could get an idea of how the quilt is going to look like.
                Rosa worked on completing this Retreat bag.
                This is a closeup of the front of the bag.  It is going to be a beautiful bag!  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

                It was so nice to see everyone Saturday after such a long absence.  We meet again this coming Wednesday.  Hope to see you there.

                NEW BOOK AND A QUESTION

                While at the Attic Window Quilt Shop yesterday I saw this adorable critter and this wonderful book showing how to make it and a number of others.  Stop in at the shop and pick one up today!

                On another note, a reader has a question that we hope you can help us with.  This is her question:

                "I have the problem. At home I am always looking for my quilting patterns, rulers, scissors etc.... I put things away and can't remember where...  Do any readers in quilting land have any suggestions or ways to keep track of things.  The latest is, I looked at my pattern of Ellie the elephant, a BJcreations pattern.  Now I can't find it?   I knew where it was for ten years, now I can't find it.

                I look forward to hearing suggestions from you and other quilters at the Attic.
                Thanks
                Marjorie"


                Thanks Marjorie for your question.  I have the same problem and hope someone can help us.

                A STUNNING WOOL PROJECT

                Seeing something as beautiful as this makes me want to work in wool.  Kathy made this sample for the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  If you want the pattern or details about a class, call the shop.  (Sorry but I didn't get the details when I was there last week.)
