  • 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!

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

Hugs, Caroll
