What a wonderful time we had when the Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this week.  We were surprised and filled with joy to see our friend Lee Anne after her absence due to surgery.  She looks fantastic! As a special treat after her long absence she received this quilt.  Chris wanted us to sign the white snowballs but we were afraid it wouldn't work because it was quilted.
This is a view of the full quilt.  Lee Anne, we have really missed you.  You are a friend, a great teacher, and you make us Happy Scrappers smile and giggle.  We and look forward to your full recovery and joining us full time soon.
We had another surprise.  Vickie S. came to join the Happy Scrappers. She did hand sewing that day, but had this quilt top with her.  She didn't want me to take a picture because it is not quilted yet.  But I convinced her that it was just too beautiful to make us wait.  It is king size and is paper pieced.  This quilt is truly stunning! Thanks Vickie for sharing.
  The rest of us got busy and sewed these small bags for Cathy.  She will add the drawstring and add small personal items to the inside pockets, then give them to Degage's Open Door Open Heart program.
Above, Cathy, Janalee, and Mary show us some of the bags they made.  These women are to be commended for giving up their personal sewing time to make these bags.  And a special thanks to Cathy for the suggestion, donating some of the fabric, and all the personal items.  You guys are the best!

Don't forget that  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.
