PAULINE HAS BEEN PRODUCTIVE!

Chris at the Attic Window Quilt Shop sent me some pictures.  She said that Pauline stopped by the shop to show her some of her recent finishes.  Above, Pauline shows us this beautiful quilt.  The pattern is from the Cookbook BOM that was held at the Attic Window last year.  
Pauline also finished two more quilts.  Above is Butterfly Garden.  Pauline used the Kansas Trouble fabrics from Moda.  

And this adorable quilt that Pauline finished is Monster Patch from Kids Quilts.  

Goodness, Pauline has made good use of this stay-at-home time.  She has been productive.  Thank you Pauline for sharing with us! And thank you Chris for sending the pictures.

OUR FRIEND FROM UTAH SHARES AN IDEA


 Good Morning Quilters!  How is everyone doing?  I haven't been up at the Attic Window Quilt Shop lately and really miss everyone.  I'll be so glad when things get back to normal.  Our friend from Utah sent me this picture of what she's been doing.  Here's what Marjorie says:

"This week I taught a class on materials you can sew that aren't fabric.  This bag is one of the samples I used for a demo.  It is made with Pet Screen, which you get at the hardware store.  It only takes about a fat quarter of fabric.  However, I cut my pieces a little larger.  I also did demos using vinyl to make clear project holders and iron on vinyl to make a bag using a large candy bag. 

Happy Halloween to everyone.  We live two miles from our nearest neighbor so I don't think I will buy any treats.

Stay well and keep sewing, 

Your friend, Marjorie."

THINKING OF CHRISTMAS?

 

Check out these new books from Martingale at the Attic Window Quilt Shop!  I know I want them all, but also thinking about what nice Christmas gifts they will make.

Let's see...I could buy one for myself, and one for a friend, and tell my daughter about what a nice gift this one would make for me for Christmas!  

Be sure and stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop soon and check out all the new books and new fabrics.

NEW FABRICS AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

It's that time of year again and this is an early wish for a Happy Halloween from the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Chris would also like to tell you about the new fabrics in at the shop.  The above basket of fabrics are from Andover and called Sleepy Hollow.  From bats to plaid these are spooky little prints.

The above group of fabrics are from Riley Blake and called Golden Aster. 

And this is my favorite.  Chris says, "I hope you are having a Purrfect Day!"  And who wouldn't with these new fabrics from Riley Blake called Purrfect Day.  They are sew sweet!

FINALLY A FINISH!

I finally managed to get to my sewing room and finish this quilt.  I probably started it last year during a Happy Scrappers session at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  
This is a close up of the quilting.  This quilt had been  on the frame forever.  Finally, I decided I would work on it once a day until I ran out of bobbin .  It took me about 5 days (one bobbin a day) to get it finished.
After it was off the frame I decided to try my hand at a flange binding.  I had never done this type of binding and followed a You Tube video by Shabby Fabrics.  Had I known what was all involved, I would never have tried it on a large quilt.  (Please disregard the errant piece of black thread on the quilt.) 
However I don't think it looks too bad from the back.

Since this was made during Happy Scrappers, you can see that I made the centers of each star by delving into my scrap basket and sewing bits of fabric together to make the centers.


 Seeing this quilt finished really makes my day.  I plan to give it to Charity and am really happy with how it turned out.  Now to get busy in my sewing room.  It looks like it is going to be a long winter inside, and I'm not planning on just sitting around doing nothing.  

I heard that the Charity Group was meeting at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, so maybe, slowly but surely, other groups and Bees will meet again.  I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends at Happy Scrappers.

I hope all is well with everyone.  Don't forget to stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and take advantage of their sale items and all the new fabric.  Shop hours are Monday-Thursday, 10-5; and Friday and Saturday, 10-3.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING?

Hello Quilters!  Marjorie from Utah has been busy quilting.  She sent me this picture of her latest finish.  This is what she says:

"All is still well here in Utah.  The temps have cooled down to normal so it feels like I can breathe again...But we get lots of smoke from California.

I finished the quilt top for my newest great granddaughter.  She was born two weeks ago.  Now I just need to get the back made and get it to the quilter before she gets busy with quilts others want for Christmas.

The plaids for dads reminded me of fabric I used several years ago when I taught a class using plaid to make a chenille scarf.  The fabric makes beautiful chenille.  Also makes snuggly quilts.

Take care, stay safe and keep quilting.
Marjorie
"

Thank you Marjorie, for sending us this picture and note. You inspire me.  Now I want to get to my sewing room and accomplish something.  Dog sitting and a son in the hospital has kept me a little busy lately.  But things are back to normal (by that I mean no dog and that son is fine) and I plan to get the binding onto my latest quilt so I can take a picture.

I hope all is well with everyone.  Don't forget to stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and take advantage of their sale items and all the new fabric.  Shop hours are Monday-Thursday, 10-5; and Friday and Saturday, 10-3.
