Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Wednesday.  Above, Cathy M. shows us the baby quilt she made during the day.  I think she said it was for a new neighbor.
Here is Mary again working on her 30s quilt.  Look at those pieces stack up as they whiz through her machine.  You go girl!
I'd like to introduce you to Pam N.  Above she is taking a lesson from Chris (shop owner).  I hope Pam will join us Happy Scrappers again.  Our group is open to all.  We call ourselves scrappers, but basically it's an open sew and you work on what you want to.
 Marilyn joined us today.  Above she is working on another Retreat bag.  After making a boatload of these bags for Christmas gifts, she said this one today is for her.
 Marilyn also worked on quilting this block.  You've seen it before.  She made it with the new Double Wide Dresden ruler.  Today, she decided to make it into a table topper.
 This is a closeup so you can see how she quilted it.
Marilyn also showed us this adorable little towel.  These lambs are made of very small yo-yos.  They are darling.
And last but not least, Cathy and I worked on making this block for the Cookbook BOM.  She's not fond of paper piecing so I made some of the block squares in this block and she did the rest.  I don't know about you, but when I am left to my own, I choose the easiest thing to do.  I have found that participating in these BOMs stretches my skills and I learn a lot that I wouldn't learn otherwise.

Diana was there working on the cutest Christmas Tree ornament.  She promised she'd send pictures tomorrow.  So be sure and check back because this is something to see.

DON'T FORGET to sign up for the Heart of Winter Tour bus trip on Saturday, Feb. 10th.  You can read about it here.  I'm really looking forward to visiting the four shops on the tour.
