HAPPY SCRAPPERS MEET AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

 The Happy Scrappers met this week at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above Marti shows us her latest finish.  Mary Gee quilted it.  Love the modern feel of this quilt.
 Above is block one of Judi's Dresden Star.  Note the stack of pieces she has finished and waiting to be placed into blocks.  This is a paper pieced pattern.

 Judi is busy sewing her Dresden Stars.  Check out that pile of cut fabrics ready to be made into stars.

Lee Anne was busy too, but she was not using her sewing machine.  This day Lee Anne was doing Twilling.  I think she is making a Ruby Short McKim design in Twilling.  Can't wait to see it!

 Peggy shows us the pile of little nine-patch squares she has been working on.  As I recall, she said she needed 150 squares and has nine to go.  Way to go Peggy!

HEART OF WINTER TOUR

Don't you just love this?  I do!  Everyone who is riding on the Attic Window Quilt Shop bus on the Heart of Winter Tour will receive a kit for this adorable place/mug mat.  Just to remind you, The Heart of Winter Tour is a fun, stress free day.  You just jump on the bus and let it take you to three different shops.  You get time at each place to shop.  The price of the bus ride includes lunch, snacks, time to shop and socialize with your friends.  You will also receive a light dinner when you arrive back at the Attic Window at the end of the day.
Kits are available in various fabrics.  Above is just an example of one of the fabrics that will be used for the place/mug mat.  Kits are also available for purchase.  Each shop you visit on the Heart of Winter Tour has a special project available for purchase.
  This is another darling kit that will be available at the shop.  Be sure and check it out.
Above is another cute wall hanging.  Kits are available at the shop.  I love that kits will be available for all these snowmen!  I don't have to make any decisions, just sew and create.
