A SURPRISE VISIT

Our friend, Cathy, has been homebound recouperating from surgery.  When she told me that she was going bonkers with nothing to do and needed to go to the quilt shop, I offered to take her there.  I never want to miss a chance to go to the Attic Window Quilt Shop. I came prepared, ready to shop and take pictures of things new.  We were fortunate that we arrived just as Sampler was in session.  More importantly, we got to see some show-n-tell.  Above, Charity shows everyone her latest quilt.
This is a little closer look.  She said it was a mystery quilt that she took a while ago.  So beautiful!  It is a little larger than regular bed size.
Charity also showed us this Mondo Bag that she made.  They are so handy!
Pauline showed us this stunning quilt.  It was a BOM last year at the Attic Window.
Pauline also showed us this version of that same quilt.  The BOM was offered in a couple different colors, so she decided to make two quilts.  So beautiful.  

It pays to stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  You never know what you will see!  Tomorrow I'll show you some new classes being offered next moonth.

NOT JUST FOR BAG LADIES

I made another Retreat Bag.  You may remember last week I posted about the first Retreat Bag I made when I took a class with Marilyn at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
Above you can see the lining and the wide open mouth.  I call it a Dopp Kit and made it for my son to put his shaving gear in when he travels to the cottage or to my house.  You can find the free pattern on the internet and the wire frames can be purchased at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
