ARE YOU GETTING THINGS FINISHED?

I have a few things to show you today.  While recently at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, Carol P. showed us her finished quilt from the blocks she made during the Quilt Block Cookbook BOM last year.  I love how she finished it.  Great job Carol!
I can't believe it, but I forgot to show you Cathy's quilt that she shared with the Happy Scrapper's group.  Cathy is trying to finish some of her projects.  She said this is from a BOM at the Attic Window Quilt Shop during 2013.  Good for you Cathy!
 I saw this sample at the shop and fell in love with it.  Kathy B. made it in wool. 
This is a close up of the project.  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

CUB SCOUT AND FFA FABRIC AT ATTIC WINDOW

When I saw this new Riley Blake fabric in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, I immediately thought of my great grandsons who are in Cub Scouts.
Also new in at the shop are bolts of the FFA  (Future Farmers of America) fabric, and...

There is also a panel to go with it.  I bet a lot of you have or know children in this great organization.
 Since my boys are in Cub Scouts I decided to make them pillowcases. 
This is a closeup of the of the fabric.  I just love it and can see the boys taking their pillows when they go camping.  (Do they do that or do they just rough it??)
Anyway, I thought since I was making the boys pillowcases, I would make one for their sisters too.
I was looking for princess fabric, but didn't find any.  What I did find were lovely kits that included the pattern.
So I made the girls these.
I made all four pillowcases yesterday.  Today I rushed around finding a shipping box, printing a label and running over to the post office to get them in the mail to Alabama, only to find it closed.  I forgot it's President's Day.

Oh, well, tomorrow is another day.  A day you will have to stop by the Attic Window Quilt Shop and check out this great new fabric.

SHOW-N-TELL AT ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

 Cheryl showed us her beautiful quilt top when the Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past Saturday.
 This is a close up of her quilt.  She said she made it using a Jelly Roll. 
Cheryl spent the day making these squares with some beautiful fabrics.  I'm eager to see this quilt top finished.  With these luscious fabrics it is bound to be stunning.
Nancy worked on this purple and white quilt.
This is going to be a beauty. 
Nancy also worked on her Getting To Know Hue BOM at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. 
I fell in love with this piece.  Carol P. showed us her fidget blanket, just one of many that she makes for a local nursing home.  I want to make some of these.  Not only are they for a good cause, but they look like they will be so much fun to make.  You can go wild with your creativity.
 Carol also showed us this Red Bird wall hanging that she worked on that day.  So lovely.
Carol also made this quilt.  I'm not sure if it is for something special.  She was just explaining things when I came back into the room and quickly snapped the picture.  Then I forgot to ask later.  It is a beautiful quilt.
 Cathy M. spent the day trying out a new ruler.  This looks like fun!
Above she shows us the block to go into her quilt.  Seems a shame to cut off those lovely points.
But the quilt called for her to square up the blocks.  On the right is another block she made with the ruler and you can see the book she is using to create her quilt.  Looking forward to seeing more of this.

I continued to sew my 2 1/2 inch squares.  I love mindless sewing because then I can talk to people.  I have to laugh because Cathy was sitting next to me and I was yammering away and she was trying to figure out her new ruler and said, "Don't talk to me.  I have to concentrate."  (Smile!)  I've been there and sure understand.
