HAPPY SCRAPPERS MEET

A fun time was had by all today when the Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  We had some show-n-tell too.  Above Cathy M. shows us her latest quilt. 
She had so much fun making the first one, she decided to make another.  Note those cute little prairie points across the top and bottom of the panel.  She spent today adding the binding.  You can get these cute flannel panels at the shop, as well as the coordinating fabrics.
Cathy also showed us this quilt.  She made the blocks when attending Sampler last year.  She said she finally put it together and had it quilted.
Mary Gee did the quilting.  I hope you can see the quilting in the above picture. 
Vickie S. showed us her latest wall hanging.  The tree is made with yo-yo's. 
This is a closeup so you can see all the work she put into finishing it.  Fantastic job!
Chris showed us this quilt just back from quilter, Carol Huster. Chris said she still has to put the binding on.  What a pretty quilt.
Janalee worked on her Charity quilt.  (Don't you just love her hat!)
 We were so happy to see LeeAnne is feeling better and joined us.
 She used these beautiful fabrics to make the above block, many blocks.  She said this quilt is for her.
 Marti made  a Fold It and Hold It bag for charity.
 Mary W. sewed blocks for her charity quilt.  She also brought 20 more of the Hold It and Fold It bags for charity.  We were so intrigued by Mary's organization and how she gets so much done that we asked her about it.

She said that when at home we should cut 2 1/2" squares, 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles, and 4 1/2" squares of our fabrics.  She uses 30s fabrics because they all go together so well.  We should organize our pieces into like sizes and bring them to the next meeting when she will show us how to assemble them.  She has a way of putting these pieces together so you don't have to worry about matching seams.  So, get to cutting and organizing and bring your pieces to our meeting next month.

A SCRAP IN TIME SAVES YOU MONEY

I've been playing with my scraps again and made the above table topper from my yellow scrap box. 
I gathered my yellow scraps and added them to a muslin template.  Then thought I needed some contrast between the wedge shapes and added the orange.
I added a faux border to finish it off.
Of course, when using your scraps you make more scraps, but even these very small pieces do not go to waste.  Once my small scrap bag is full I take it to Shirley who is at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Thursdays.  She uses these small pieces to fill beds for the animal shelter.

I hope you will join me in making fabric from your scraps on Friday, Nov. 16, at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  You can read about the class here.
