We had a wonderful time this past Saturday at the Happy Scrappers meeting at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Despite the rain, sleet, and ice, we had a nice turn out.  Above, Pam (new to the group) shows us this beautiful quit made from all scraps.  From what I understand, this is just a fourth of the quilt.  She plans on making three more like this and making a big quilt. I'm eager to see it!

Above, Sonie shows us one of the blocks she is working on.  

And check out this quilt that Sonie made.  This is her first quilt that she has quilted herself on her new quilting machine.  It's fantastic.  

Above are close-ups of her work.  Can you believe this is her first time!!!  Great job, Sonie!

Lee Anne shows up what she is working on.  What beautiful fabric she has chosen!
Jane shows us the border she is working on.  It is for a panel. 

This is the panel.  What a beautiful quilt she is making!!

Nancy was busy making these squares for the quilt she is working on. 
Check out this pile she still has to sew together.  The pattern is Voysey. I can't wait to see this quilt finished. 

And this is what I worked on.  Anyone recognize the blocks?  Years ago I belonged to a group of quilters from around the world.  I have blocks from the Netherlands, Australia, UK, and various places in the US.  I received so many blocks that I decided to make two quilts. I'll show you that one when I get it put together. 

The Happy Scrappers meet again on Saturday, April 29th.  All are welcome.  You can spend a whole day socializing, having fun, shopping, and sewing.  All for just $5.  

The Attic Window Quilt Shop is open Monday-Friday, 10-5, and Saturday, 10-4.  Hope to see you there.

 Hello Quilters! I hope everyone had a great weekend. It snowed again here in Michigan, and that meant that I spent time in my sewing/quilting room. What fun! One of the things I did was decide what I was going to sew when I attend the Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this coming Saturday. I found some blocks from 2009 and decided I would use them to make them into a quilt for charity. These blocks were sent to me from around the world. I belonged to a group back then (can’t remember the name of the group) and we made blocks for each person in the group. I have blocks from Australia, the Netherlands, the UK, and a number from various places in the US. As you can see, one of the blocks above was from the UK and the other from Tennessee. What a fun group.

We hope you will join us Happy Scrappers this Saturday. I just read that social isolation is as harmful to your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Now, don’t do that to yourself. Come join us for a fun day of sewing and socializing. This group is so helpful and sharing. Not only do they share ideas, but Adrienne brought in a big tote of scraps for us to dig through and use in a project we may be working on. You don’t have to use scraps. Maybe you have a quilt you are trying to finish. That’s fine. We don’t require you use scraps. We just want you to join us for a fun time.

We meet the last Saturday of every month from 10-4. The cost is just $5. You can bring your lunch, or run out to one of the many restaurants or fast food places near by. No need to register for the day, just surprise us and show up ready to sew and socialize!

Hope to see you there.
