Continuing Saga...

Join the party at Quilt Block's blog!  Send them a photo of your most recent project that uses .... FABRIC!  Did you guess it?  Anyway, here's mine.  I've done one applique border for my Lucinda Brodie.  Woo hoo!

This store really likes contests, so check in with them from time to time.

By the way, if you're thinking of appliqueing a border, DON'T do it the way I did.  I added the border and THEN appliqued.  WRONG!  The second one is already measured, and the designs are fused to it in preparation for interminable blanket stitch appliqueing tomorrow.  Then I'll sew the border on AFTER all the applique is done.  Live and learn.

I'm also hosting a class on the Disappearing Nine Patch quilt for my guild tomorrow.  We're all getting together to sew our Outreach quilts.  By the end of the month, we should have 30 quilts to hand in to Madeline's House.  I don't know if that will be enough or too many -- they wouldn't tell me how many residents they had, but after some round about talking, I'm guessing this is a good estimate.

Off to the lurkim to cut batting for the charity quilts.  Have a great day!  And don't forget to check out the Quilt Story blog!
