The Happy Scrappers met this past Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Some of us were still working on our mystery blocks that I posted about last week.  Above, Rosa and Adrienne show their blocks.  I love their bright colors.
Peggy’s design of the mystery block turned out a little differently from what Rosa and Adrienne had.  I love Peggy’s fabrics.  She said she is going to make it into a table topper.
Above is Judi’s block.  I love what she did with her block and wonder how she got that square in the middle.
Above is my block.  I didn’t like all that dark green in the middle of mine, so I appliquéd on a star. Isn’t it amazing how one block can look so different?
Other members worked on various projects.  I don’t know the name of the block Diana was working on but am amazed at how she works with these small pieces.
Diana is so organized.  She also does tatting and showed me how she stores her tatted snowflakes from year to year.  She showed me a picture of her Christmas tree and it looked so lovely with all these various size tatted snowflakes.  What a clever idea!

The thing that drew me into quilting was how different the same block can look just by changing the fabric or turning the units.
