LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW TO DO?

Diana sent me pictures of some new items at the Attic Window Quilt Shop that you might be interested in. Above is the new book from Martindale by Primitive Gatherings.  Itty Bitty Celebrations is full of great seasonal ideas that you can make with wool. 


The above two Snowmen are wonderful patterns called First Snow and Best Friends.  You know, January is snowman month, so now would be a great time to make these cute guys and have them all ready to decorate your house next year.

Before I go, I want to show you what Cathy M. has been working on.  She said she is using the Log Cabin Quilt Block Foundation Paper that comes in a 42 sheet pad.  These blocks are 12 1/2" unfinished.  You can buy the pad at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Cathy said she was using up her scraps.  Great job Cathy.  Thanks for sharing with us!   

Be sure and stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and say Hi, and check out all the new fabrics, books, and notions. The hours are Monday-Friday, 10-5; and Saturday, 10-4.  

Hugs, Caroll

FINALLY SOME BLOCKS FINISHED

Since this Pandemic started I've had difficulty focusing, sticking to one thing.  Does anyone else have this problem?  At least I could focus long enough to work on three different blocks.  I just wish I could finish a quilt or table topper or something.  I recently saw a You Tube video "How To Sew A Scrappy Stained Glass Block" by Krebsbachhubercrafts and decided what a great way to use my scraps.  I love the blocks this person made, but I'm not sure about making more.  It took a lot of thinking and sewing, etc.  And mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as hers.


I finished this block.  I love applique and when recently at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, Chris told me about a new pattern.  There are six blocks and I thought maybe I could start a BOM.  The pattern, Bliss is by Barbara Persing and you can find it at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  

And this is what I have done so far on the Pickup BOM at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I'm not crazy about this kind of applique, but thought I would try it and hopefully improve my skills.  So far it leaves a lot to be desired.  I've decided to make each month's block into a wall hanging.  I like to change things around my house at least once a month. 

Be sure and stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and say Hi, and check out all the new fabrics.  The hours are Monday-Friday, 10 to 5; and Saturday, 10 to 4.

Hugs, Caroll

 Chris sent me the above picture.  Here is what she said:

"Melonie is at it again!  The center of  this quilt  is made with one of our panels here at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  She added the borders with the flying geese!  You will have to stop in and check out the quilting that Melonie did!"

Thanks Chris for sharing this lovely quilt with us!

NEW BOM READY FOR PICKUP AND A SALE!

Have your picked up your BOM from the Attic Window Quilt Shop?  I am still working on mine, but just found out that the kits for the next two months are available.
Above are the blocks for February and March.  I love these blocks and appreciate Lee Anne making up these samples to show us how it is done.  Chris informed me yesterday that Lee Anne is working on the April block and those kits will soon be available too.  Wow!  What fun.  This is going to make an adorable quilt.  However, I'm still pondering:  do I want to make the blocks into a quilt or use each one as a wall hanging when I change things in my house each month.  I know you can get the special hangers for these blocks at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  

Attention:  When you stop by the shop be sure and check out the sale items.  I understand that books, notions, and patterns are marked down even further than during the sale.  You won't want to miss that!

Hope you have a great weekend.  And hope to see you at the Attic Window Quilt Shop very soon!

Hugs, Caroll

DON'T MISS OUT ON THESE FUN EVENTS and BIG SALE

 
Check out this adorable quilt.  Our friend, Marjorie in Utah, sent this picture of her latest finish.  It was a BOM on Jennifer Jangles blog last year.  I love Jennifer's patterns and now that I see what Marjorie has done, I want to get back to sewing and get my blocks finished.  I love this applique method, too.  After you fuse your applique, you just sew around your pattern using a straight stitch.  So easy and looks great.  Thanks Marjorie for sharing with us.

Don't forget the January Calendar is on the sidebar.  These are some points I don't want you to miss:

  • Christmas Through The Year is starting this month.  You will make quick gifts throughout the hear for any occasion.  Two sessions will be held each month.  The charge is $5 a session plus a kit fee if available. The first sessions are Friday, Jan. 15, from 1-3; and/or Monday, Jan. 18, from 6-8.  You will learn a new technique with several different layouts. Class will be limited at this time so please call the shop to make your reservation.  
    • February will be a bag with two colors and prairie points and an easy zipper method.
    • March will be a Star Tablemat, using a tool from Creative Grids and 1 1/2" strips.  There will be two different designs.
    • Dates to be determined.
  • Applique Block of the month!  This is a pick up BOM only.  Call the shop to sign up for this cute quilt or you can make a separate wall hanging each month.  Stop in and see samples of the first four months.  Lee Anne has been busy making the samples for the shop!  They can be machine or hand appliqued. The book needs to be purchased at sign up.  Kits are $8 each month.  Special hangers are also available for purchase if you are not putting them into a quilt.

DON'T FORGET the Sale at the Attic Window Quilt Shop!

  This is what Chris says:

"Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, and hope you have a blessed New Year! We will be closed for New Year's Day, but please join us on Sat. Jan. 2 and the following week on Jan. 4 through 9 for our SALE.  We  will also do after hours shopping by appointment during the week of Jan. 4 through 9.  Please call the shop to make an appointment.
