Today I want to tell you about some classes/bees/happenings coming up this month at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is the Strip Street Bag.  Lee Ann will be teaching a class on Saturday, March 15th.   You can never have too many bags!

 The Applique Bee will meet Tuesday, March 25th from 1-4.

 The Modern Bee meets Wednesday, March 26th from 10-4.  We had a challenge last month.  I’m not sure if this is the block I’ll use for the challenge, but I wanted to show it to you because I do like this block.  The center is what I call "made" fabric.  I love this technique!

THE SPRING CLEAN-UP SALE is Thursday, March 20th through Saturday, March 22nd.  You will want to take advantage of this stupendous sale!

There is a Stitch-In on Friday, March 21st from 10-6.  I understand a paper-pieced block will be taught.  The Stitch-In continues through Saturday, March 22nd, 10-5.

You are probably wondering what this is.  I had to show it to you because I think Quilters are the best.  Last Saturday at Happy Scrappers I spied these strips in Jana Lee’s strip box.  I commented on them and she wanted to give them to me.  Since she is new to quilting and still building her stash, I didn’t want to take her pieces, I just wanted her to know I thought they were beautiful.  A couple days later when I went to my sewing room to get some work done, I found these strips.  She must have tucked them into my bag when I wasn't looking!   Jana Lee you are so sweet.  I can’t thank you enough.  You prove my point: Quilters are the best!!

  • 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 during the month of April.  Twelve 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 NOTEPeacemeal Quilts has a great tutorial for a Botanicals BOM Block 2 Shasta Daisy.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
