Had a nice sew-in on Tuesday. Would you believe I just finished unpacking! Had two people start Pat Sloan's pattern, traffic jam. Can't wait to see those in the patriotic colors! I'm happy to say that last night I finished the last of the 14 tops that needed labels. Also some of the ladies are finishing up their string quilts---looking very nice. I have an idea for our next session of string piecing. If you get Martingale emails, Stitch This, they have an "amazing strip-quilting design" featuring the book: Accent on Angles. Google that title and look!
We're working on a date to do more backings. I got a donation of batting that are these craft size packages. So, if you can help me tape them to size needed, I would appreciate it. As you know, Tuesdays work for me, and I believe the next two Tuesdays are free. So, if it'll work for you, stay tuned.
Also, Paul sent me the photos taken at the sew-in on Saturday in Elgin. " photos on our BLC website which may be of interest to you.The following link (http://www.blcelgin.org/blce/quilting_party__quilts_of_valor_) will get you there. I got a real nice thank you from Bill, one of the recipients of a QOV:
I share this thank you with you as I know I couldn't do it without you! I wrote him and told him there were many hands in making that quilt. Karen L---look at your applique stars! Thank you also for all the help in cutting up our scraps!
