Heart of Winter Tour, Saturday, February 12. Above is the Attic Window's Heart of Winter Tour Quilt sample. Isn't it lovely? It's not even in my colors and I just love it. Each participant who goes on the tour will receive a free pattern at one of the participating shops so, at the end of the tour you will have the complete pattern for this quilt. Fabric kits using the Kansas Troubles fabrics by Moda are also available for purchase. There are still seats available. Come join us this Saturday, February 12. No need to worry about the weather or road conditions. Just sit back and ride in a warm, comfortable bus. A bus will pick you up at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, then take you to Around the Block in Portland. From there you will go to Quilts Plus in Kalamazoo, where you will enjoy lunch, and then on to Quilted Memories in Montague, then back to the Attic Window. The hours are approximately 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. For the price of $40 you will ride in luxury while you talk to your quilting friends, receive lunch, free patterns for the above winter project, and watch demos at each store. This is a fun trip and will help you get rid of those mid winter blues. Besides, who doesn’t want/need to get out of the house after that snowstorm? Call the Attic Window for reservations.
Saturday was First Saturday Bee and Judi shared her latest finish. She made it from the pattern I blogged about here. She said it was quick and easy. I love the modern feel to it.
I hope I haven’t shown you this before. It seems so appropriate for this time of year.

You can participate any time you wish.
