Checking in

Getting ready for another sew-in soon. The quilts haven't been picked up yet from the Great Lakes personnel....maybe they'll just wait until our next sew-in on April 5th??

Can't wait to show you another block using our 2 1/2" strips that I learned while in AZ a couple weeks ago. Was at the "3 Dudes Quilt Shop" and one of them was demonstrating his new pattern. If you're ever in the Phoenix/Mesa area be sure to check out their shop. Here is one of the pictures I took of just one of the layouts.

A note from Vicki re Beloit sew-in held March 2nd


We had another successful day at the Beloit meeting of Land of Lincoln Quilts of Valor. There were 8 of us and we had a great day. The day consisted of our normal show and tell and then down to work. Lunch of course was on the agenda and as always it was delicious. I am proud to say that I came home with 8 quilts for Quilts of Valor and 1 quilt that will go the local Veterans Homeless Shelter (Tina's project). Also Tina kept two tops for two other long arm quilters that volunteered to do a quilt. So 10 quilts total for Quilts of Valor. I must admit that these quilts were not all completed at the sew in - these are very dedicated ladies that sew at home and then sew as a group. They are simply THE BEST.
