I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop today and found Charity (above) and Cathy working on their First Blush blocks.  I posted about it last month here.  Apparently I had the wrong information.  This BOM is currently in process.  You can step in and join any time.  The group meets the fourth Wednesday of the month at 11 a.m.  Call the shop for details and to sign up.
 Above are the blocks that Charity has made so far. I believe you make two a month.  And it is recommended you stay and sew after class so Cathy can help you with the tricky stuff.  I love the background that Charity has chosen.
I also love these fabrics and had to take a picture of some of her blades to show the fabric to you.
Cathy was busy too, making blocks and using her extra fabric to make the 9 patch squares for the borders.

SEPTEMBER is nearly here and it's time to get back to our sewing.  Gift giving time is coming soon and what lovely gifts you can make with these blocks.  Or you might want to try some of the other classes starting in September.  The new calendar will be available soon so look it over and get started sewing.

NOTICE!  On the second Thursday in September, Julie plans to have a Doll Tea.  If you have made a doll with Julie, bring it that day for display during tea time so everyone can enjoy these special dolls.  This event is open to all who want to view the dolls.  Also, if anyone wants to request that a class be held to make a certain Gail Wilson doll in the future, you should let Julie know at the Tea.  She can do a class for any Gail Wilson doll upon request.

REGISTER NOW! If you are interested in participating in a Bee Hive, call the shop and register now.  The class starts in September.  We meet the fourth Wednesday of every month at 10 a.m.
