I am having so much fun making these quick little quilts. This one is called "Smiley" and is a design by Lynn Doyle of Bloominminds. It is 16" x 19" and was a great way to try out the buttonhole stitch on my new Pfaff.…Continue

The program chairman is really a 2 year position & I was half way through when I was asked to run for president. I figured what the heck - I might just as well get all of my volunteering over with at the same time. I know - good luck with that idea! LOL Anyway, one of the duties of the VP is making sure a quilt top is made for the outgoing president, which is given to her at the…Continue
