ELIZABETH IS STARTING A NEW QUILT

Don't you just love it when a young person starts quilting!  Above, is my great granddaughter Elizabeth.  She is 9 years old and she is showing us the quilt that she has started.  She is such a joy and I wish I could sew with her, but sadly she lives in another state.  
 Here she is laying out the squares to see how she wants to sew them.  Her mother told me that Elizabeth wants to live in my basement.

 My basement is my sewing room, a place where I can relax and enjoy manipulating fabric AND not have to worry about cleaning up because someone might come over.  Fortunately, Elizabeth doesn't see the mess when I let her visit my sewing room.  She only sees all the fabric.  A gal after my own heart.  I can't go up to the Attic Window Quilt Shop without getting more fabric. "It's only a Fat Quarter," I tell my daughter.  I'm not sure she knows what a Fat Quarter is and I hope to keep it that way.  LOL
A special thanks to Meg for sending these pictures and making my day!

NEW FABRIC AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

New shipment of Hoffman Bali Batik Club fabric packs is in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Thank you Diana for sending the picture.  I have to get up to the shop soon and get some of these.
Our friend Marjorie Johnson sent this picture.  She said:  I have been working on this and making a big mess.......scraps and threads everywhere.  It is called Mad Dash.  

Thank you Marjorie for sharing with us.  I love using scraps and this is going to be a lovely quilt.  I like the idea of the orange sashing.  Using scraps is like Free sewing to me.

THURSDAY THINGS OF INTEREST

Don't forget to sign up for Marilyn's bag class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  It is being held Friday, April 26th. You can read more about it here.  Call the shop to register and get your supply list.  This looks like a great Mother's Day gift.  
I did finish this charity quilt.  What a beast this was, from start to finish. So glad it is completed.  Now I'm making pillows for my son and DIL.  I hope to have a tutorial for you on these pillows for your outside chairs that we saw recently at the Cottage Show downtown.
Have you signed up for the Table Runner Of The Month?  You can read about it here.  Call the shop to place your order.  I hope there is room left.  I've been busy this week getting ready for the weekend and haven't checked in at the shop.  

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Blessed Easter.

A LITTLE OF THIS AND THAT

I forgot to show you what I worked on during Happy Scrappers last week at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Actually, the above block was my show-n-tell.  It is the latest Pat Sloan Out Of This World BOM.  Not sure I like the center, but I'm using my scraps and hope it will work.
These are the blocks I worked on at Happy Scrappers.  I was practicing sewing curves.  Of course, I used my scraps.  Above the blocks are just laying side-by-side to see if I like the arrangement.  I finally sewed them together, added a green border and it is now on the frame ready to quilt.  I'll show you a picture when finished.

HAPPY SCRAPPERS MEET AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

 The Happy Scrappers met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop .  Above, Janalee shows us the quilt she worked on. It is for charity.
 This is a closeup of the fabrics.  Don't you just love that fabric!
Cathy shows us the quilt she is making for charity.  Don't ask for the pattern.  I think Cathy randomly sews fabrics together and comes up with a pleasing design and mix of colors.  Great job!
Mary W. continues sewing her 30's fabrics together to make beautiful charity quilts.  I wonder how many she has made over the years.  I'm sure it is a lot!
I didn't get a picture of the quilt Marti is working on.  Above, she runs the sweeper, helping us clean up before it's time to go home.
Marilyn and Sue were there too.  What a wonderful day talking and sharing with quilting friends!  Hope you will come join us next month!
