A group of us who are friends of education are making a quilt to raise money for the Community Foundation that supports scholarships for students from both public and private high schools in Mitchell. We selected the fabric called "Wildflowers" by Heather Mulder Peterson and I just love the colors. My block is a Jacob's Ladder and I believe my squares are all the right size this time and I even got one or two to be very close to "great". I am allergic to the work "perfect". I have all 13 done. The 12 of us will each take one and then put together the quilt for the foundation together. I think it will be quite special. I can tell because when I lay all 13 blocks out together, I like what I see.
First I wanted to show you the Kaffe Fassett finished on the bed. I love it.
Then I wanted to show you the darling purse I made out of little grandson worn out jeans. I was cutting some denim squares out of the legs but couldn't bear to waste the perfectly great pockets for cell phones, change, credit card holders and the like. I stitched across the bottom. Added a ruffle and some straps for handles. I think they would work for little or big girls. Plan to sell them at the Garage Sale in a couple of weeks.

So Busy! But I read everyday and love to see what others are doing. I know I am sucking it in and not giving any back. I will! In the meantime, wander over to http://the-quilt-shoppe.blogspot.com/ In Stitches and join in on their bingo fun. Hope you do!
