 Happy Scrappers met this past Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  As I drove toward the shop trembling and driving about 10 miles an hour in the snow, I wondered if anyone would show up.  It was our first big snow of the year and the roads were treacherous. Also, I know everyone is busy at this time of year, getting ready for the Christmas holidays, traveling, attending parties.  But I was determined to make it.  I needed some socializing before the Big Storm hit the next day which promised to keep us house bound for at least the next two days.  Being house bound is great for sewing, but I need to talk to people!  And did we talk and sew.   Above, Nancy shows us the block she made that day.  I love those fabrics!
Peggy worked on this table runner.  It is the same pattern that we used for making the QAYG table runner during Craft Day.  However, Peggy thought it needed to be jazzed up.  Above, she auditions the border fabric and adding another border of squares.  I think I like it much better like above.  Great idea Peggy!
I started a new Charity Quilt.  I wanted to use up some of my scraps and spent a great deal of time cutting 2 1/2" squares.  The pattern is Electric Avenue from the magazine Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Winter 2015.  I think this will make a pretty quilt.

Hope everyone makes it to Happy Scrappers on Wednesday!
