NEW FABRICS AND NEWS FROM FELLOW QUILTERS

Hello Quilters!  How is everyone doing today?  Chris just sent me this picture of new 30s fabrics that just arrived at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  These are Darling Clementine by Andover Fabrics. If you are interested in purchasing any of these you can call the shop or send Chris an email at  BrownAttic@aol.com.  

I was thrilled at the response to yesterday's post when I asked what everyone was doing.  Here are some of the answers:

Marjorie said: 
I just complete this 72" square quilt top.  It is made with a layer cake pack and background fabric.  It is a free moda bakeshop pattern and can be made with charm squares also.  The photo isn't the best as I had to lay it out on the bed as my design wall isn't big enough.

Next I am starting to sew nine patch blocks for our guild humanitarian projects.
I also hope to get some masks done as the pain clinic has ask both guilds for a total of 250 masks.

Wishing all the quilters who read the blog Good Health and Happy Sewing!
Deb Betz said, "I have been making fabric face masks for my daughter in law's work. They’re fun and quick to make. This certainly is unprecedented. I’m glad I’m a retired nurse at this time. Our son is a firefighter with GRFD, he’s in our prayers along with the Police.

Joyce Marder said: "I am working on Feathers.  I bought the pattern three years ago and found it intimidating because one must piece 30 birds from little squares and rectangles.  

I make one bird per day.  Eight are finished."

I've asked joyce to send pictures when she's done.  I'd love to see those birds.

Eleanor Swiech said: Hi everybody. I went through my scraps, pulled out brown, orange, gold,yellow, and cream and am making a log cabin quilt.
Time to use scraps.

Yes, a great time to use those scraps!!!


Cathy M. sent me her latest finishes.  They were made from panels.  Cathy said that the quilt with the dogs is for her uncle who is a dog and pheasant hunter for most of his 80 years and the Renoir is for his wife.
 Marilyn sent these pictures of the fabric book she made.  
She said: "How about making some of these to have on hand?  Tee hee!"

These are adorable and maybe I should start making some now since I'm going to be a great grandma again in October!

This has been so much fun.  Thank you readers for sending pictures and/or notes to let us know what you've been doing.  It is great inspiration!
