This is a reminder that the Starburst BOM begins this month at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, are the samples I made for the class.  Cathy wants to make her quilt using the yellow background so these blocks will go to her. I want my background to be in a white on white fabric.
Actually, this is another picture of the same block with the yellow background, but something happened to the camera and the background looks white, so I decided to show it to give you an idea of how these beautiful starbursts will look with a white background.
I have to show you this one with the black and white background.  It was my first experience with the ruler.  I think I'm going to make it into a table topper.  Since you will be choosing your background fabrics, I thought maybe this will give you another background idea.
Here is Cathy showing us a sample of one of the blocks you will be making.
Above are more starbursts that she made when trying out this wonderful Creative Grids ruler.  Please note that these are just try-out samples and the fabrics you will be getting in the kits are different and you will chose your background fabrics.

The Starburst BOM begins Wednesday, May 23 at 11 a.m. at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  You will be making two blocks each month.

Suggestion:  We suggest that you stay and sew during the afternoon for the first few months to learn how to use the ruler and make the blocks.  As you gain experience, you may opt not to attend class or enjoy the free sew and socialization time and just pick up the monthly fabric kits.

Notice:  Space is limited.  Registrations must be in by Friday, May 18, so that your kits and space will be guaranteed.

Please call the shop for details on price, discounts, supplies needed, and other information for this class.

New Calendar:  The May calendar is on the sidebar.  Please note that the new Sampler series will not begin until June.  The Samplers on the Calendar are catch-up classes.  Also, there are several Stitch-Ins this month.  If you attend two you will only pay $5 for the both, instead of the regular price of $5 each.

  • Sampler (catch up), Tuesday, May 8
  • Bee, Tuesday, May 8
  • Embroidery Bee, Monday p.m., May 8
  • Happy Scrappers, Wednesday, May 9
