Cathy had sent me pictures of last month's Quilt Block Cook Book BOM.  Above the ladies show their blocks.
 A couple more show their blocks.
And some here too.  I love this block.  It is forgiving and easy to make.  I bet an entire quit made of this one block would be beautiful!  Maybe I'll have to try it.
This is the block everyone was supposed to make for this month's meeting which is Wednesday, at 11 a.m. at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. A special thank you to Cathy for making this sample block.  It was my turn to make the sample but, alas, I was could not get to my sewing machine.  Wonder what block we are to make for next month.  Stay tuned to learn more.

  • Bees In The Attic meets at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Wednesday morning at 10 a.m
  • The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM meets Monday evening at the AW and also Wednesday morning at 11 a.m.

 I'm back!!!  A very special thank you to all who sent your thoughts, cards, and prayers.  I can't tell you how much it meant to me and how it helped me heal during this difficult time.  I wish I could show you all of the beautiful cards, but that would be impossible.  I do what to show you a couple of the hand made cards that I received.   Judi A. made the one above with her fancy sewing machine. So lovely.
And Jeanne B. made this beautiful card.  I admire her talent!

Again, a special thanks to all my quilting friends.  Cathy has been sending me pictures of what has been going on at the Attic Window and I will start tomorrow showing them to you.  I'm slowly getting my mojo back and may even get down to my sewing room soon!

In the meantime, don't forget:
  • Bees In The Attic meets at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Wednesday morning at 10 a.m
  • The Quilt Block Cookbook BOM meets Monday evening at the AW and also Wednesday morning at 11 a.m.  I'm so anxious to see everyone.  Also, you won't want to miss this group meeting as there is a special prize in store for you.
  • I hope I haven't shown this before.  I can't wait to try it.  A Few Scraps has a tutorial and template for a Magic Triangle Block.

 Yvonne B. recently sent pictures of the fun time her grand daughter's Girl Scout troupe had at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The girls learned to applique this adorable owl.  Rosa and LeeAnne helped Yvonne teach the girls.  She said, "The girls learned a lot."

Above the girls show off their work.  Yvonne said, "We had show-n-tell first, showing them the different ways to applique.  For this project they used felt.  The girls learned how to sew on buttons, glue their pieces to the background, and how to attach their owl by using large stitches.  They all did a great job!"
 Rosa helped the girls with their applique.
 LeeAnne helped too.
More work on their project.
 After completing their project they had a fun time playing bingo.
And they had pizza.  By completing their project, each girl will earn a Sewing Badge to sew on her vest.

It looks like a fun time was had by all.  I wish I could have been there.  Thanks Yvonne for sending the photos.  What a great thing to do for these girls.
