HAPPY SCRAPPERS MEET AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

The Happy  Scrappers met today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and guess who joined us!  Rosa!!  It had been a while since she has been to Happy Scrappers, and it was so nice to see her and hear all about what she has been doing.  As you can see, she has been busy making this beautiful quilt for her grandson who attends Hope College!  I love it.

LeeAnne also joined us and worked on this lovely quilt.  She said she is making it for charity and is not using a pattern, but sewing 5" squares together.  I'm eager to see what the finished quilt will look like.

Pat joined us and continues to work on her place mats.

She also made this cute table topper. 

Adrienne joined us and had some interesting stories to tell us about her quilts.  Above is the quilt she made while on lock-down in New Zealand. She had no templates and chose to use these batik fabrics because they reminded her of the water and flowers, and foliage in New Zealand.  Notice the light green dots in the squares.  Adrienne said that they represent the dots on a map of New Zealand that showed where the Covid outbreaks were.  Since they were on lock-down, she was unable to get templates for the circles so she improvised and used ketchup bottle caps, and various other caps she had around the house to draw the various size circles.  She is so clever and I love this quilt.  What a wonderful story and reminder to pass on to her children. 
She also decided she needed to practice curve piecing and made this beautiful quilt.  The pattern is from the book Strips and Curves by Louisa L. Smith.  She made this quilt for a friend's birthday. 

And this is the back of that quilt.  Love that fabric!!!

Remember: The Attic Window Quilt Shop is open Monday-Friday, 10-5; Saturday, 10-4.

Hugs, Caroll
