What Fabric's New at the Attic??
Patchwork Garden by Kathy Schmitz for Moda
"My mom is the one with the green thumb. In her garden there's always something blooming, hardly any weeds. It is a haven for birds, bees and butterflies. I have to admit I'm a fair weather gardener. I do enjoy digging in the spring soil under those first warm days of April. I also love drawing all things garden and flower related. The inspiration is endless -- seed packs, garden quotes, and flowers, flowers, flowers! I'm always keeping my eyes open for vintage script, especially old school samples full of squiggles and designs. To replicate that feel I use pen and ink. My "normal" handwriting looks juvenile but using the pen and ink is more like drawing the words and, taking my time, I have much better penmanship!" ~Kathy
Love the color red? We do! Kathy Schmitz shows off her new collection, Patchwork Garden, and her amazing block of the month pattern featuring her beautiful stitchery.
Two other patterns showing off Patchwork Garden...
and -- to make this one, you only need two (2) layer cakes, which we also have in stock!
Classes this week:
10/14 Needle Turn Applique, taught by Susan Cottrell. 6-9 pm (this hand applique class is taught by one of the best!)
10/15 Simple Whatnots Club! This is our first meeting, so you can still sign up to join in. This 6- month club features 6 small quilts by Kim Diehl, using her gorgeous fabrics. We'll have some "extras" at our meetings as well as yummy refreshments! Club meets on the 3rd Wednesdays every month from 6:30 - 8:00 pm.
10/16 Modern Building Blocks Block-of-the-Month (BOM). If you still want to make this quilt, sign up and come this week! This is the second class, but we can catch you up! It's a great modern quilt that will help you gain confidence with lots of different blocks! Since the pattern doesn't come with instructions, this class is super helpful in the block assembly process! This BOM meets on 3rd Thursdays at 6:30.
10/18 Square-in-a-Square BOM class begins! In this 4-month series you will learn 10 of the 39 quilt blocks you can make just using this single ruler. Space is still available for a few more in the class which meets pm the 3rd Saturday from 1-4 pm.

Have you heard about Post Card Parties? It's nothing like a Tupperware® party, so don't worry!! This is a fun project we'll be starting in the next few weeks where you'll not only learn new quilting techniques, but may even make a new friend kinda like in the days of Pen Pals when some of us were young! More details coming soon...
Remember, every Tuesday from 11-4 is Open Sew at the Attic! We've got quite a nice little group coming... why not join them?? Help is available from our awesome staff if you're having trouble with a project!
We hope you can get out and enjoy this lovely fall weather we're having. If you can take a drive up one of the canyons, you won't be disappointed at the splendor that awaits you! You may even be inspired for your next quilt. We have some yummy fabrics in autumn colors that just may tempt you next time you're in the shop!
Have a great day and Happy Quilting,
the Gals at the Attic
