The Teachers of the Attic Window Quilt Shop met last night to plan classes and events for the next session. Here are just a couple of the fun projects in the works. Above is a pillow featuring the fabrics from the Welcome Home collection of Clothworks Textiles. Kits will soon be available in the store, but the fabulous fabrics are there right now. Check out this fun easy project, which will make a perfect gift for the holidays.

Above is the first month’s block for Barb’s Redwork BOM. The other blocks are beneath this first one and that is the shadow you see. Barb never needs to put a foundation piece on the back as she does not “travel” when she embroideries. The back of her blocks look as perfect as the front. Wish I could say that! This is a must class/club to take if you want to improve your embroidery skills.

I am in awe just looking at this. This block is from the upcoming Twilling Club. Barb’s work is breathtaking. The white on white gives such an elegant effect. Join this group and you too can make these wonderful blocks. Wouldn’t that be a fantastic wedding gift?
Are you thinking about Christmas projects? Park City Girl has a nice tutorial for making a Christmas Stocking. Check it out.

Until Next Time, Happy Quilting,
