Yikes!  Where did the month go?  I thought I had another week until the Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, but it occurred to me today, the last Saturday of the month is this coming Saturday.  Did you forget?  I hope not, because I really want to see everyone there.  It's been a busy month, and I'm ready for some quilting fun with my quilting friends!  So DON'T FORGET!  The Happy Scrappers meets this coming Saturday, September 24, at the Attic Window Quilt Shop!  

See you there!

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL QUILT SHOP ON JELLY ROLL DAY!

I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop today and saw this stunning quilt that a customer made.  I love it!  

The pattern for that lovely quilt is from this book by Bonnie Hunter.

Above is another new book that you are sure to want. 
This adorable ornament came from that book.



There are lots of new patterns in the shop.  Chris said not all of these pictures show only NEW patterns, but I'm showing them anyway.  I love patterns!

Speaking of patterns.  Remember I recently showed you a precious pillowcase that LeeAnne made.  It had a cat on it.  Above is the pattern for not only that one pillowcase, but many more.  You are sure to find just the right pattern for that Grandchild!

The store has been rearranged and I saw so many items I had not noticed before  Above is a picture of a gorgeous quilt that a customer made.  

Chris and I tried to download pictures of other customer quilts, but we couldn't get it to work.  So look for them next time.

Until then:  Don't forget to support your local quilt shop.  Saturday is Jelly Roll Day, so stop by the Attic Window Quilt Shop and pick up a Jelly Roll!

Don't forget The Attic Window Quilt Shop is open Monday-Friday, 10-5; Saturday, 10-4.

A NEW QUILT FROM HOT HOT UTAH

 

Our friend in Utah sent me this picture.  This is what she said.  

"I took a class at Guild last week.  I just used fabrics that I had.  I really like the bright colors so went for it.  The reactions went from neat to interesting.

Fun to do, but I see my days of straight seams are diminishing.

Have a great Labor Day and Keep on Quilting

Marjorie "

Don't forget to look at the new September calendar on the sidebar. 

The Attic Window Quilt Shop is open CLOSED THIS MONDAY FOR LABOR DAY, open Tuesday-Friday, 10-5; Saturday, 10-4.

NEW AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

 

Hello Quilters!  I was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Saturday and I have a lot to show you.  First of all is this adorable pillowcase that LeeAnne made. I forgot to ask, but she might be teaching a class.  Wouldn't it be great to start now on those gifts for the grandchildren!
This is a new book in at the shop. 
And this is a sample of one of the table topper patterns in the book.  I love this!
Jelly Roll Jam is another book in at the shop that I'm sure you will want.  Look below at all the samples that you can find in the store.


These all came from the Jelly Roll book and are just too cute!

 This quilt pattern came from the Three Yard Quilt Book.  A kit will soon be available for this one.  Don't you just love kits!!!


And check out these adorable fabrics.

They come in a kit!

And here is what is inside!  I think the pattern is there too.




And these are more fabrics in the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  They are stunning.  Since my camera was apparently not working I didn't get the name of this fabric line but as I recall they are from Andover Fabrics.  So beautiful. 

 I hope I have everything correct.  All this pollen or whatever in the air is really bothering me.  Any questions, stop in at the shop and ask Chris.

QUILT SHOW PICTURES AND HAPPY SCRAPPERS

Did you get to the AQS quilt show down at DeVos this past weekend?  Cathy and I went down and I wanted to show you a few pictures that I took.  It really was a great show despite the trouble parking.

BUT FIRST:  This is a reminder that Happy Scrappers will meet this coming Saturday, August 27th at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  All quilters are welcome to join us from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  You can enjoy Show-N-Tell, great conversation, and shopping.  What a fun day!  Hope to see you there.

Now for the pictures I took at the show.  Above is an applique.  Did you know I love applique?  I also have a new Handi Quilter quilting machine that I'm trying to master and understand what to quilt where, therefore you will see my focus in these pictures....quilting.  Hope you enjoy.

OUR FRIEND DOES IT AGAIN!

 

  • Hello quilters! Sorry it has been so long since I posted and I still do not have the August calendar out! Gads! It has been a crazy month with a lot going on. Seeing old friends, going on vacation, and having my kids and great grand kids spend time with me. So much fun.
  • But I did want to tell you about this lovely quilt above! Marjorie, our friend from Utah, made it. This is her Steampunk Elephant Quilt.


Here is what she says:
 

"It is about 63 inches square. Was fun to do, I made it up as I went along.

Summer has been brutal here in southern Utah. High has been 112 deg. and we have had about a month of 100 deg. plus, days. Phew it has been hot. We finally got some rain. About 1/4 inch. Last rain was April 20th.

I have been hunkered down in the basement. I got 7 quilts to the quilter. I just completed my third quilt of valor and it is ready for the quilter.

Now I have lots of large strips cut from the backing after quilting. Sometimes I use them for the binding, but would like other ideas to use this precious ($14 a yard) fabric.

What do you and your quilting friends do with this type of leftovers? Any ideas would be helpful.

Life is good.

I am also making a lot of samples for the class I am teaching at Guild. We are doing chenille mug rugs or hot pads."

What a wonderful, newsy letter. Thanks for sharing, Marjorie!

THE HAPPY SCRAPPERS HAVE BEEN BUSY

The Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Saturday and we have so much to show you .  These first two photos are of charity quilts that Janalee and Jane made.
I'm not sure where these quilts will go after they are bound.  I know that some of them go to Kids Without Beds.  This is such a wonderful group of women. 
And that Jane is so loving and thoughtful.  She was busy making pillowcases for members of the armed forces that are on ships.  Jane heard that Chris had a granddaughter in the Navy so she gave this pillowcase to her to give to her granddaughter.  I wish I had gotten a closeup of this fabric.  It's so appropriate. And I apologize to Jane because she made a lovely quilt with cats and dogs on it and apparently I got so involved with the show-n-tell that I forgot to take a picture!  

And LeeAnne (left) made this fantastic quilt for her grandson!  Janalee (right) is helping her hold it up.  This quilt is something to see.  There are thousands of very small pieces and the workmanship is something to behold.  

Marti and Mary Gee stopped by.  Above Marti shows her latest quilt.  She made this modern quilt for her brother.
Mary Gee quilted it for her.  Love this quilting design. 

Above is another quilt that Marti made.  She may have been missing our Happy Scrappers meetings these past few months, but she's not just sitting around twiddling her thumbs.  Great job, Marti!

And, lastly, I want to show you my monster quilt that I made for my great grandson.  Hope he likes it!

Almost finished.  I'll be working on this Monster quilt for my great grandson at Happy Scrappers this Saturday, July 30th, at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Hope to see everyone there.  I'm eager to see the projects you're working  on.  Come See, Sew, and Socialize.  We have a fun time!

NEW AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP



I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop today to get some wide backing fabric for my great grandson's Monster quilt, and had to show you some of the new items just in. I get so easily distracted in this quilt shop that I almost forgot what I came in for.  I so wanted some of these (Above) beautiful batiks by Hoffman.

And look at these new books!  They are filled with adorable patterns.

You are certain to find just the right pattern in one of these books for that special someone on your gift list.  It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas!
