The Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Saturday.  Therefore, I have lots to show you today.  In fact, there is so much it will continue throughout the week.  This really is a productive group.  Above is the little book that Marilyn made.
This is the inside of the first page of the book.
And this is the panel that Marilyn used to make the book.  You can get the panel at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
 Marilyn also worked on her QAYG using her homespun fabrics.  What a wonderful idea for a man's quilt.
Val was busy making a Michigan State University quilt for her...well, I forget, but I think she said it was for her niece.  She had a new pattern which I hadn't seen before, so I hope she'll bring her finished quilt for us to see before she gives it away.
Lee Anne is continuing to work on her charity quilt using these beautiful batik fabrics.
Nancy finished her strip quilt that she made for charity.
Then Nancy started working on another quilt for Charity.  These gals really are workers!
I put the corners on these squares that I'm making for a table runner.  Basically most of the time I talked and took pictures and browsed the books and fabrics.  Oh, my, like I need any more of either of those, but I can't resist.  There is new fabric in at the shop but I'll have to show that to you later.
 Naturally, we had to replenish ourselves, gain strength for all this sewing.  What a fun day.
Don't forget, the Happy Scrappers meets again on Wednesday, Sept. 13.  Hope you can come and join the fun!
