My No Bake Applique “potholder” quilt is wearing white after Labor Day! She is sporting a third place ribbon and I couldn’t be happier. My friend “Potholder” Pam Weeks (NEQM) took this photo for me. Woohoo!
(I can't seem to orient it right side up)
Have been doing mostly Sloooooow hand stitching lately, but I did manage to put together two more tops over the weekend for our veterans. This one is made from blocks that were shared by Dar of (Dar's Patchwork Garden) and used with her gracious permission (actually encouraged by Dar - thanks!). I made this one less scrappy than I normally would have, but am making some more scrappy red, white and blue ones for the next go round.
This one is made from blocks from our members.
We have a few places that we send them. One is a homeless shelter for veterans in Maine. Somehow I just can’t say “homeless” and “veteran” in the same sentence without feeling shock and sadness. How can this be?
