I have that pattern but it is called Warm Wishes. So many names for so many blocks. Wonder where they all come from?

I love this one in red/white/ and blue. It is very striking.

Thanks, all.

Sewn3w, Psalms are full of good, short lines, whether you use them all over or just use one per quilt. Unfortunately, the Bible verse I was assigned to be my "special verse" is not very good for this. "I lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help? My help cometh even from the Lord, who hath made heaven and earth."

TMQ, Someone just took a very traditional pattern and gave it a new name, I'll bet. With folk art, folk tend to have simialr or identical creations, hence "monkey wrench" and "Virginia Reel" for the same block.

I finished another quilt today. It is the same as one I made a while ago, so I didn't take a new picture.

One thing I like about that pattern is that it takes half (cut on the fold) of a yard of theme fabric. Another is that it is really fast. I got that one done except for quilting the theme animals a month ago, so finishing it was rather fast.

When my friend who cleans our place helped me re-organize a lot of my sewing stuff, we found a bunch of charity tops. We put them all together so I'll be able to find them. Most of them were from before our move last summer. I went to pin baste one and found my backings drawer was empty. I washed everything I came across that hadn't been washed already and she helped me fold it all. The idea is to fold every piece in fourths lengthwise, then fold/roll it so it is ready to be cut conveniently. DH wanted to know why I wasn't using my collection of batiks as backings.

Golo, my first one took me 2.5 hours up to the binding. I don't think it will take you very long. I generally cut 5 strips of each round after the center. I fold the center section in fourths, cut off the corners all at once so all 4 are equal, and set those aside. For me the hardest part, because I have such limited layout space is getting the theme fabric exactly centered and pin basted over the batting and backing. I generally quilt that part before I go on. Originally, I just put the corner pieces back when I got that far. Now I put other fabric on the outsides of the corners before I add them. On this quilt I just used what was left from the other cuts. All those fancy angles on the rounds just happen.

BTW, a different friend came by today and took 3 twin sized flimsies off my hands. She will quilt them. All the county fairs in California have had their state funding cancelled, as of a year ago. Next week there will be a large BBQ and auction to support our fair. I offered these 3 tops for that purpose, if she can get them done. I may get them back for binding.

I hope you get them back and binded on time. I use to work with a lady who would make a quilt each yr to have raffled off at a fair. She would sell tickets at work.
Where and when is the fair? I think I am 3 hrs away from you.

Thats wonderful to have someone quilt your quilts.. binding isn't so bad... I find it rather relaxing..

This is not a fair. This is a fund raising BBQ, cake/pie auction and and craft auction. It is supposed to be on the main street in Hayfork on Sunday (Hwy 3). I know for sure of 2 of my quilts being auctioned. The one that my friend is quilting for me is this pattern, which I altered slightly. The fabrics are mainly really bright florals.



It really looks a lot better than that. A bunch of other quilters are giving quilts to be auctioned as well. If you are thinking of coming, check with Calfire to see how the local fire is doing or Caltrans to check on the road. The fire is/was on Wildwood Rd, so it's either 36 to 3 to come in from the South (much steeper) or 299 to 3 and enter from the North. They are hitting the fire with all they've got so the danger to homes may well be gone by then.

Take care with all the smoke if your out and about in it Marynel and best wishes for your quilts to sell and make good money for the fundraiser. Its just the first week of spring here and bushfires already in places on the mainland, doesnt bode well for summer. Hope they get yours under control fast

We are still here. There are lots of fire fighters on the job. We went down to Redding today. On the way back we passed 8 trucks that had been released from the fighting. There was a huge plane overhead to drop retardant. Last night, Roy was told that they would let the fire burn down to the creek. Later, it burned past the creek and went on up and past the highway. That part has been put out. There is quite a bit of smoke in the valley, but one area near us that had been evacuated is open again, so we are feeling encouraged.

Here is the quilt I made for the High School Ski Team raffle this year. It was a Quilt a Long from TracysQuilts.com called Treasure Boxes. Measures 82x65. Fabric is Ta Dots from Michael Miller and Moda's Bella Solids. Was a fun quilt to make. There is a boo boo in it though - can you spot it?!
