HAPPY SCRAPPERS AND A BIRTHDAY!

 

The Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Saturday.  What a great group!  First, I want to show you this adorable machine pincushion that Janey made and gave to me.  It is perfect for my machine and so handy!  Thank you so much Janey!

Everyone, wish Mary a Happy Birthday.  Today, she worked on making another quilt for charity.  A very special Happy Birthday to this special lady!
We had some show-n-tell, of course.  Vickie D. made this small quilt using special Drunkard's Path templates.  I think she will have a class on the October calendar.  Be sure and look for it! 
Vickie said she used these special templates with markings that made making these circles so much easier.  You can get the templates at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
Vickie also made this Bat wall hanging.  So cute and perfect for this time of year!  The postcard pattern is at the Attic Window Quilt Shop!
Nancy J. joined us today.  So nice to meet her.  She was busy making these Star blocks for a quilt for one of her grandchildren.  Her goal is to make each of her grandchildren a quilt.  I think she said that would be six.  Welcome Nancy.  Hope to see you next month.
JanaLee was busy making another comfort quilt for Pieces of the Heart. What a great project!
Nancy S. was busy working on a Halloween project.  This is an embroidery project.  Looks like a fun wall hanging.  

I can't believe I didn't get a picture of what Janey was working on.  I know she had some pretty green half square triangles, but I think we got interrupted and forgot all about taking a picture.  Guess that happens when you get oldd.  And I really feel old today.  I've been dog sitting all week and let me tell you I'm not used to all that walking and picking up and not being able to just go when I please.  

Be sure and mark your calendar NOW for the next Happy Scrappers on Saturday, October 30th.  All are welcome.  Vickie D. has agreed to give a demo on a new way to do binding that is so much easier and makes the corners look so nice!  Can't wait to watch that.

Be sure and stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and check out all the new items.  The shop is open Monday-Friday, 10-5; Saturday, 10-4.

A LITTLE PRACTICE AND A REMINDER


This really isn't anything to look at, but I wanted to show you the practice piece that I did at the Machine Applique Class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last week.  On the left is another piece drawn out and layered with stabilizer and ready for me to practice more.  I really need it too!  Those points are murder and "turning right take a bite" is hard to remember (which way am I turning now?).  But like they say, practice makes perfect.  I doubt that I will ever be perfect, but Chris's class at the Attic Window is fantastic.  She helped me so much. Not only does she give great instructions, but she gave me little hints and sayings to help me remember what to do.  Hopefully, I'll be able to finish LeeAnne's BOM soon. 

Also, I just want to remind everyone that the Happy Scrappers meet this Saturday, September 25th at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Not sure how long I will be able to stay as I'm dog sitting my son's Boxer who is very needy right now.

Don't forget, the Special at the shop this month is Buy One Book at regular price and get a second book for 30% off.  What a deal!

HAVE YOU MASTERED MACHINE APPLIQUE?

LeeAnne has a BOM at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Her machine applique is so beautiful and perfect.  I can never get mine to look like that, and so far, all I have accomplished is only the first month's block.  So I decided I needed to take a class from an expert.  Chris, shop owner, is not only a great teacher, but her background is in machine applique.  I took her class yesterday and learned so much from her.  Now that I know the little tricks and special techniques, I have to practice those squares and circles and curves.  You know what they say: Practice makes perfect!
Another great aspect to being at the Attic Window Quilt Shop is seeing old friends and what is new at the shop.  I got to see Julie who teaches the doll making class every Thursday.  She showed me her latest quilt.  I love the colors in this Snail's Tail quilt.  She is planning on quilting it herself on her domestic machine.  It is beautiful!
Also while at the shop, I got to see some of the new Glow In the Dark fabrics.  Above are Orange Skeletons that Glow In the Dark, a coordinating plaid, and an orange print.  These are by Henry Glass.
This is a close up of the Glow In The Dark Skeletons.
These fabrics are called Castle Spooky and are from Lewis and Irene.  The bottom fabric is Black with Bats.  The Orange Ghosts and the Blue Pumpkins both Glow In The Dark.  
I also got to see some of the new items in at the shop.  These embroidered pieces were stitched by Kathy Bagin.  So cute!

Another lovely wall hanging embroidered by Kathy. 

And Kathy made this beautiful Wool applique piece!

NOTICE!    The new calendar for September is on the side bar.  There are a number of new classes and events planned.  And there is a Free Motion club being formed, so I'm eager to join that.  You won't want to miss the Stitch-In and Pizza Party on the 17th.  And, I hope you will want to attend the class I'm teaching on how to make a scrappy table topper.  Check out the calendar and call the shop to register for a class.

HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?

I've decided I should stick to applique.  Above is a paper pieced table topper I made.  Wow, did I get things wrong.  I have no idea how this happened.  Usually paper piecing is so precise.
I figure if I put a big pot in the center no one will notice that none of the seams match.  

This is the next pattern I'm going to tackle.  I'm going to make this cute Robot pattern for my new great grandson.  Yes, it's applique!  Can't wait to start it.  I got the pattern from the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  

NOTICE!    The new calendar for September is on the side bar.  There are a number of new classes and events planned.  I'm signed up for the Basic Machine Applique class on the 9th.  And there is a Free Motion club being formed, so I'm eager to join that.  You won't want to miss the Stitch-In and Pizza Party on the 17th.  And, I hope you will want to attend the class I'm teaching on how to make a scrappy table topper.  Check out the calendar and call the shop to register for a class.

A FUN TIME AT HAPPY SCRAPPERS

The Happy Scrappers met this past Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I want to show you the fun time we had.  Above, Jean Janey (sorry I didn't catch that I wrote her name wrong until it was pointed out to me) is making pillowcases.  She belongs to the Wednesday Night Strippers guild and they sew for a service organization named Heads At Ease.  These pillow cases go to members in our armed services.  Janey says that she sends out thirty at a time!  What a wonderful project!
Aren't these pillowcases beautiful!  What a wonderful project that Janey his working on!
Nancy is new to the group and spent the day sewing little blocks for a quilt she is making.  Hope she comes back and shows us the finished project!
Marti spent the day making these little hexagons.
This is the bag pattern that she's making those hexagons for.  Can't wait to see that!
That Mary....drinking again 😅   She's such a delight, and kept busy all day sewing charity quilts.
Janalee shows us one of the many blocks she made today.  She said this little block board helps her to sew the pieces together correctly.
Chris, shop owner, showed us some antique quilts.  Above is a large quilt made completely of yo-yos.  She said this quilt is about 100 years old.  I looked at the stitches holding the yo-yos together and could not believe how tiny they are.
This is another antique quilt.
And this is another antique quilt.  Chris said that you should not put these antique quilts in the washing machine.  She sells a special soap at the Attic Window Quilt Shop that you soak these quilts in and it works really well!

A fun time was had by all!  I always look forward to going to the shop to sew.  Can you believe it's almost September!  The new calendar will be up soon.  New classes have been added and new items are in at the shop to give you ideas on what to make next and for the upcoming holidays.  

Be sure and stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and check out all the new items.  The shop is open Monday-Friday, 10-5; Saturday, 10-4.
