Recently I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop to find the Tuesday Bee in session.  They are a busy Bee and I have lots to show you.  Above, Judi shared this darling wallhanging that she made.  I’m sorry I didn’t get the name of the pattern or the maker, but I bet if you call the shop they can tell you.
Judi also shared the above picture.  She made it of all wool and put it in a glassed frame.  Great idea!
I’m a sucker for dolls and there were scads of new dolls for sale in the shop.  I had Chris line them up so I could take a picture!  I love the expressions on their faces.
Above is Santa who forgot to get in line with the other dolls.  He’s all ready for Christmas.
Pam showed us this quilt that her great grandmother had started.  She wanted to finish it and solicited ideas from the group as to how to go about that.
Maggie showed us these cute little pincushions that Glenys made.  I guess Chris asked each of the women who work at the shop to pick a pattern from a magazine and make a sample.  I hope Glenys has a class because these would make such nice gifts.
Barb made this lovely Scottie wallhanging. I believe kits will be available.
Cindy made this beautiful purse.   I am in awe of anyone who can make these wonderful purses.
This is Barb’s newest Twilling pattern.  You can find the pattern in her new book which you can purchase here.  Or you can click on the link on my sidebar.
This is just one of the quilts in the Eleanor Burns Trunk Show.   Stop in and check out the Quilt Blocks on Americana Barn.

Don’t forget:  Fall Fabric Sale!!  Friday, Oct. 19 – 10-8 and Saturday, Oct. 20 – 10-5.   There will be 20-75% off fabrics; 20% off books, patterns & notions only!

On Another Note:  I’m thinking Gifts.  Sew Mama Sew has a tutorial for a Bike Pouch.  Check it out.

Until next time,

What a cute Halloween wall hanging and love seeing all the other neat things!


Hello Caroll, Great photos as always. The Halloween quilt is fantastic. I must treat myself to Barb's Twilling class and her snowflake twilling book. Hugs Judy

Love the teeth! I'd take Santa home with me if I could, he's so handsome ;O)
Everything that you've shown is fantastic, what a great atmosphere to be in.

Oh, I love show and tell. Thanks for all the eye candy photos.
The Halloween quilt is from a Kim Diehl book, Simple Seasons. The cute owls are from Simple Quilts and Sewing #126. Hope that info helps some that asked.

I love the pincushions, the wool behind glass, and of course all the dolls! Looks like I'm missing out on a lot of fun up there. Miss you!
