MORE FABRIC, BOOKS, PATTERNS

Isn’t this a darling table mat?  Sue C. made this wool sample for the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The pattern is called Winter Crazy Table Mat by Primitive Gatherings and is available at the shop.
There are also a few new books in at the shop.  Above is All About Strips and Fast-Piece Applique.
And I have more new fabrics to show you.  Above is Rainbow Tropics by Kanvas Studios.
This is called Flirt by Windham Fabrics.
Above is Blue Bell by Windham Fabrics.
Mystic Topaz is by Exclusively Quilters.
This is Made With love by Kanvas Studios.
I have to have some more of this fabric.  I made a pillowcase out of it for my great grandson.  The Fabric is Monkey Around by Henry Glass.
There is also a panel in this line.  You can make a book out of the blocks, or pillows, or a quilt.  I like that there is plenty of space around the blocks so you can cut them out and not lose any of the block when sewing into your project. 
This is Dinasaurs by Riley Blake.

ATTENTION:  Many readers liked the Green Farms fabric that I showed yesterday. Ivory Spring wrote me that she will soon have a free pattern for you and she made it up in that Green Farms fabric.  If you visit her blog today you will see she has an At The Pond free pattern.  Be sure and check out her blog daily which is on my sidebar.  You won’t want to miss it.

 HEART OF WINTER TOUR is February 7th.   The bus will take you to four different shops.  Lunch and dinner are included. 

ON ANOTHER NOTE
  • Did you get a new iPad for Christmas?  Charmed Liebling has a tutorial on how to make an iPad Case.
Until next time,

NEW FABRICS IN AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

I stopped in at the shop this past weekend for the first time since Christmas.  It was so great seeing my quilting friends and to pet fabric.  And did I pet fabric!  There is a multitude of new fabrics in at the shop and I’ll show you just a few of them today.  Don’t you just love these cows and fluffy sheep in the picture above?  It is Green Farms by Kanvas Studios.
This is a close up with some of the coordinating fabrics.

Love this one called Steppin’ Out by Henry Glass & Co.
This is a close up of the coordinating fabrics.
It is almost February and there is still time to make that special project for Valentine’s Day.  Above is I Love You by Henry Glass & Co.

YOU WILL WANT TO DO THIS

How does your calendar look?  Now is the time to make your plans for next week because there are a lot of fun things happening at the Attic Window Quilt Shop that you are sure to enjoy.  On Tuesday, there is a morning Bee and then at 1 p.m. the Applique Bee meets.  At the Applique Bee a new BOM is being introduced.  Above is the piece I’ve been working on.  I’ll be demonstrating how I do Needle Turn.
And I’ve been prepping these pieces to demonstrate how I do freezer paper appliqué.  You don’t have to use my methods.  There are various ways to do appliqué and you are free to use your method of choice for this fun quilt.  Also, you don’t have to participate in the BOM and are welcome to come to the Bee and do other handwork with us.
On Wednesday the Mod Squad Modern Bee meets.  We are also introducing a new BOM and will be discussing the topic, “What is a Modern quilt?”   Is it solid colors that make it modern?
 If you take a traditional block like above…
And turn it into this…is it Modern?  Come and join us in discussing this fascinating topic and then, if you like, participate in the BOM.  This BOM has 12 “modern” blocks made in the colors and size of your choice.
Saturday is the first Make It Take It of the year.  Each month a different project will be presented.  Above Marilyn shows us the bag we will be making.  If you are interested in participating in the Make It Take It, please call the shop and register.

Check the calendar on the sidebar or the Newsletter here to see more fun happenings at the shop next week. 

Mark your calendar now for the Heart of Winter Tour on February 7th.   The bus will take you to four different shops.  Lunch and dinner are included.
