AS I was saying...

I mentioned before how I really enjoyed reading all your comments about how you use the Internet. Many of you remarked that you find Facebook as confusing as I do.

Case in point… I belong to some wonderful groups on Facebook one of which is a group called Celebrate Hand Applique hosted by Caron Mosey. On April 1st she introduced a challenge to design and create a little quilt of our own design and post it on June 1st. I didn’t see the post until May 1st so I decided to make mine simple.



It is made from vintage feed and flour sacks so I am calling it "Flour to Flower". 
Of course now I can’t find the original post so I think I might have dreamed it up. But I needed a few quilts to donate to our mini quilt auction at the show this summer, so I can check one off my list!


And, I would like to share an organization tip from my very dear (and oh so clever) friend, Karen Mitman. She went to the dollar store and bought several colorful gift bags and organized each of her projects with a photo of the quilt on each bag. Now she is ready for our upcoming “Seven Sistahs” (Spelled thus as we are in Maine!) retreat in mid June.
 I’m going to go pack!

  16. Hi!
    Cute little quilt. One less thing on your to do list. Facebook is not my favorite thing. I've never tried to join a group on it. Wish I could join you in your retreat. Have fun.

  18. Late late late, but finally replying to your internet question. I "look at" instagram and pinterest, and I lurk on a few quilt related Facebook pages, only because some of my favorite quilters - Cheri Payne for example - no longer blog. Blogs are what I like best. Keep on posting Wendy, you've spurred me to get back to it as well.
