Today as I read the Reader's Digest I came to a small article about the Thank You notes the Jimmy Fallon "writes" on his show. One of them was "Thank you, quilts, for being blankets made of other tiny blankets." Have I been doing it wrong? Lol
A new excitement in my life... H2H, (Hands to Help) a very worthy charity (in my opinion) is starting for 2018. I have a 4 patch quilt in mind and will make one for the Little Lambs - since that is my maiden name. (Yup, in the good old days I was Terri Lamb.)
I've been a part of this (H2H) charity since 2012 , when I made this quilt
Here are some of the other quilts I've made for various charities associated with H2H.

H2H - 14 (turned in late)
Check out Sarah's blog to find out the particulars. There will be quilting tips, recipes, tutorials and prizes, and lots of fun.
I've been wanting to try half square triangles... I found a pinwheel pattern I like and I think it'd be a great project to do for Rainbow Scrap Challenge, BUT I had all kinds of trouble making my first two.
I figure the trouble with my points comes from the trimming. More practice is necessary.
Linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge tomorrow.
On our move from Washington state to Wisconsin we drove Interstate 80 passing through Wyoming. (It's a beautiful state in July.) We stopped in Green River for a lunch and then a little fabric therapy at Keama's Quilts. She has an amazing assortment of fabrics and other quilting goodies. Here is what I bought.
Recently, she emailed me about a quick sale they had, and now she is showing a tutorial on You Tube. This one is on cutting for a backing. I thought you might enjoy it.
