Yay, I was able to find
the book yesterday that we are using in Sewing Bee to help with Stash Reduction. It has five great, quicky quilts to make. We are doing the 4-Patch Flip (top picture on the back cover). I will probably not start on mine till a couple (a couple, she says???) other projects are Done Done. I thought the 4-Patch Flip would be a great one to use for a Quilts in Force one. Quilts in Force is one of my guild's ongoing charity projects. We provide quilts for kids in crisis. We hand them out to police officers, women's shelters, children's hospitals, etc. It is a wonderful cause and I try to do a couple a year. Currently I have some adorable Boyd's Bears fabric that I am wanting to use. Maybe the 4-Patch Flip will provide a good setting. BLT Ritual My husband and I have an annual summer ritual. When we get our first ripe crop of homegrown tomatoes, we have crispy bacon, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, ketchup and/or mayo sandwiches. We are like two little kids waiting for the ice cream truck as we watch the yummy little orbs turn orangy-red on the vines. Of course, we have to compete with ground hogs, but this year we have managed to come out winners! Lunch today was the BIG EVENT. We tried so hard to savor them, but pure lust won out. Mmmmmm....nothing tastes as good as those first garden tomatoes.
