We enjoyed some show-n-tell last Saturday while Rosa and I were making our bags at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, Jill shows us this T-shirt quilt that she made. 
Of course I was busy sewing and didn’t write down who the quilt is for, but it looks the girl went to Catholic Central. 
I do remember that Jill said the young woman is now in college.  Isn’t this a darling block! 
Carolyn E. stopped by the shop to pick up some fabric to go with this quilt that she is making for her grandson in Florida.
This is a close up of the quilt.  It looks like Carolyn is doing this entire quilt with English Paper Piecing. 

DON’T FORGET THAT THE SPRING CLEAN-UP SALE is Thursday, March 20th through Saturday, March 22nd.  You will want to take advantage of this stupendous sale.


  • 7th ANNUAL SPRING FLING SHOP HOP, March 28th through April 5th.  Six west Michigan shops are included with giveaways at each shop.  Passports can be purchased for $5 at any shop.  Visit the shop to sign up for a drawing and receive a free pattern.  At the end of the shop hop there will be a drawing for a sewing machine from completed passports.  Participating shops are:  Attic Window Quilt Shop; Calico Creations (South Haven); Custom Quilts Unlimited (Fennville); Pressing Matters Quilt Shoppe (Holland); Queen Bee Quilt Shoppe (Grand Rapids); So South Haven (South Haven). 
  • THE QUILTER'S ROAD TRIP is April.  12 Shops are participating.  Passports are $5.  Each shop chose a different month for its wallhanging.  Chris chose January because she loves snowmen.  Secretly she’s afraid we’ll all be made at her for choosing snowmen since we are so sick of snow here in Michigan.  I don’t think she needs to worry because that snowman is so darn cute!  Patterns and kits are available for purchase.
ON ANOTHER NOTEGeta’s Quilting Studio has an interesting tutorial for a raw edge appliqué.  Check it out.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

A t-shirt quilt was one of my very first quilts. I still have that first one! I've made a couple since for others. They are a nice way to use and preserve shirts you don't want to wear but can't throw away.
