DID YOU KNOW?

Hoo!  Hoo doesn't know about all the wonderful new BOMs at the Attic Window Quilt Shop?  I love this little Owl Coin Purse that Sue made.  It is a Cut Loose pattern and you can get it at the shop.

Marilyn and Sue are starting a new Vintage Christmas BOM.  Participants have two choices of fabrics for their kits.  You can choose the Batiks (left) or the brights (right).  This group starts in February and meets the third Wednesday of each month. Call the shop to register.
The group will be using the book, Vintage Christmas by Lori Holt.
Also, did you know about the Civil War BOM?  Above are some of the blocks they have been making.  These are lovely and I so admire the work by the women making them.
Why?  Because they are working with very small pieces.  These tiny squares above that are used to make a 5 1/2" nine patch have a finished size of 1".  Wow!

ATTENTION:  Is anyone interested in participating in the Queen Bee BOM.  We will be using the same two books that we used last year.  Anyone interested, please plan to attend the first session on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 10 a.m.
Also, if you are interested in attending the Starburst BOM, the group will meet on Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 11 a.m.  All who are interested are invited to attend this informational meeting.

AlsoCathy would like to know if anyone is interested in a BOM that includes a paper piecing and traditional piecing combination of contemporary and traditional type blocks.  If so, call the shop.  We were thinking of maybe a Wednesday afternoon class.
