WHAT'S NEW AT THE SHOP

When I was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last week I saw some new fabrics that I wanted to tell you about.  Isn’t this block above adorable!  I know.  Who wants to think of anything having to do with snow after our long hard winter.  But, really, it is just too cute, and you will be glad to have something cool to work on this summer when the weather gets hot.
That block is part of this panel.
These are the coordinating fabrics. 
This is a close up of one of the Warm Wishes fabrics by Red Rooster Designs.  Better buy it before it melts away!
I also fell in love with this Kitty Kat line by Blank Quilting.
This is a close up.  I love anything cats, can you tell?

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  The weather here was breathtaking. 

ON ANOTHER NOTEFairy Face Designs has a tutorial for a HST mini quilt.

Until next time,

NEW BOM AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

A new BOM has started at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is one of the blocks.
This BOM is called Quilted Memories Mystery Quilt #2 and is by Common Threads.  It is $15/month, which includes, kit with Civil War fabrics, pattern, and a chapter of the novel Quilted Memories. 
This is another of the blocks.  You can pick up your kit each month or attend a class, which is on the third Wednesday of the month from 10-12.  The first class was held this week, but you can pick up your kit any time.  Check it out!

IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD:
  • THE QUILTER’S ROAD TRIP is the month of April.  Twelve shops are participating.  Passports are $5.  Each shop chose a different month for its wallhanging.  Chris chose January because she loves snowmen.  Secretly she’s afraid we’ll all be made at her for choosing snowmen since we are so sick of snow here in Michigan.  I don’t think she needs to worry because that snowman is so darn cute!  Patterns and kits are available for purchase.
ON ANOTHER NOTE: Melly Sews has a tutorial for sewing a collapsible box.

Until next time,

A LITTLE OF THIS AND THAT

I love this wool wallhanging.  I have posted a picture of this wallhanging before, but it was unfinished then.  Now it has the lovely lime green border and is hanging on the wall at the Attic Window Quilt Shop where you can get the pattern, which is by Trish Stuart.  I want to get this pattern and make it in cottons.
I went to the shop early yesterday hoping to see what members of the Tuesday Bee had been up to.  Above Geri shows us this beautiful queen size quilt that she made from scraps!  The pattern is Lincoln’s Platform.  Geri said the pattern was in the American Patchwork and Quilting magazine a few years ago.
Kathy made this charming quilt.  The pattern is The Country Quilt Show.  It is a wool and cotton quilt and was quilted by Bonnie Rhoby.
This is a close up of one of the blocks.  Isn’t it darling!

ON ANOTHER NOTE:  This isn’t exactly a quilting project, and The Bored Zombie says the tutorial is for wedding cake toppers.  However, I thought this would be a wonderful Easter project for the grandkids.  These Minions are adorable.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
