THIS GAL WITH A KIND HEART HAS BEEN BUSY

Hello Quilters!  I got the nicest surprise today when I heard from Misti, a co-worker and patron of the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  She has been one busy bee during this Pandemic and sent me pictures of all that she has been doing.  Above are Ornaments that she made out of the bandanas from her husband's brother's wife who passed away.  Misti said that she is also going to make a memory quilt for him.  What a dear heart you have Misti!  

This pastel quilt was from an old kit that Misti had purchased a while ago from Connecting Threads.  She said that the kit had been in her sewing room for some time and she decided to finish it.

Misti said that she made this journal cover for herself.  It also was an old kit that she had not gotten around to.

One of Misti’s lady friends from her bible study class at church asked her about the book bag she always carried and said how much she liked it.  She even offered to pay Misti if she would make one for her.  Misti made her friend this book bag and of course is not going to let her pay for it. Isn't it stunning!

The penguin ornament is a Christmas gift.

Misti calls this her Bee quilt and said that she is making it for her bed.  
I love the colors and the fabric in it!  Thank you Misti for sharing with us.  I loved seeing all the pictures of what you've been doing.  You have inspired me to get busy and get something done!

Be sure and check all the new classes and other goings on at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  And don't forget to check out the wonderful collection of flannels that the shop carries.  All Flannels are on special this week through Feb. 20th, at 20% off.  Shop hours are Monday-Friday, 10-5; Saturday, 10-4.  Hope to see you there!

GETTING SOME BLOCKS FINISHED

Hello Quilters!  I've been trying to get some things finished up in my sewing room and thought I'd show you the second block of the Bliss pattern that I talked about here.  I love applique.  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Also, please note that the new calendar is on the sidebar.  Some new classes have been added and I might add, Chris has great prices on her classes.

This is another little mat that I finally finished.  I did some ruler quilting and free motion quilting on it.  I think I really need to take the Free Motion Quilting class that Chris will be teaching on Wednesday, Feb. 17th.  And, when I look at the pickup BOM that LeeAnne is hosting at the Shop, I realize I really need to take the Beginning Machine Applique class that Chris will be teaching on Wednesday, Feb. 24th.
This is another finish.  I don't even remember when I made this small wall hanging, but I finally put the binding on it.  I really am not crazy about that binding either.  I may take it off and just put a black binding on it.  What do you think?

Be sure and check all the new classes and other goings on at the shop.  And don't forget to check out the wonderful collection of flannels that the shop carries.  All Flannels are on special this week through Feb. 20th, at 20% off.  Shop hours are Monday-Friday, 10-5; Saturday, 10-4.  Hope to see you there!

A READER DOES I AGAIN!

Marjorie, our reader from Utah, sent me pictures of her latest quilt.  She said it is a baby quilt gift. I love how she did the flange border.
Above is the back.  Notice the full moon.  How clever.
And this is a closeup of the quilting.  Wonderful!

Thanks Marjorie for sending us these pictures.  I love hearing from readers.  It is especially nice during this time when the Virus and/or the snow is keeping me from getting to the Attic Window Quilt Shop to see what others are doing or to see all the beautiful quilts on display at the shop.

By the way, don't forget to stop by the Attic Window Quilt Shop and get some of those beautiful flannels on sale.  The hours are Monday - Friday, 10-5; and Saturday, 10-4.  

Hugs, Caroll

NEW AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

Hello Quilters!  I don't know what it's like at your house, but here in western Michigan we have lots of snow.  It has been such a mild winter that this big dump of snow is hard to take.  I've been cooped up in the house for three days straight!  Yikes!  At least we have all these modern gadgets to stay in touch with the world.  Jill from the Attic Window Quilt Shop sent me this picture.  She said it is a Tissue Tote and you can get the Cut Loose Press pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

Chris sent me some pictures too!  Above and below are pictures of the new 108" wide backings that are now in at the shop.  They are from Windham Fabrics.

I hope everyone is staying well and getting some sewing done.  Be sure to stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and check out all the new fabrics, books, and notions.  The hours are Monday-Friday, 10-5; and Saturday, 10-4.

YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THIS!

 

Diana sent me this picture of the new batik fabrics from Anthology now at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  They are beautiful!  Thankfully the sun is shining and the roads are clear, so guess where I'm going today?  (Smile)

And while I'm at the shop I'm going to check into these bolts of fabric!  Diana also sent me this picture of end of bolts.  She said, "Inventory is almost done.  These bolts are 25% off if you finish the bolt.  This sale starts Tuesday, Feb. 2nd."  This is just too good to resist.  In my head I'm already ticking off ideas. 

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

Hugs, Caroll
