I bring hand projects with us on vacation. If we go on a long trip, I'll bring a machine.

Love that heart quilt! Batiks are my favorite, I'm always hunting them.

Hello, quilting sisters, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Most of our company has left, and my thoughts are turning back to the UFO's from this year. I actually finished and gifted two projects: A Nativity wall hanging panel with hand quilting, and a "red work" embroidery done in blue with pieced borders and corner stones-finished as either a wall hanging or table topper. No pictures I'm making good progress on two sampler quilts: one in B/W for grandson and one in prairie colors. Happy quilting to everyone for the new year! ~G

Just a reminder (plea) to my quilting sisters and brothers for quilt squares for a Quilt of Valor. I posted the instructions in November. I've gotten 2 squares so far from Mrs. Silverhoot - I'm hoping for many more by the end of January! PM me for my address when you're ready to mail!

Kay, I apologize that I had forgotten this over the busyness of the holiday. Let me talk with my local quilting sisters, a group of five retired middle school teachers. When I explain, I think they'll each want to do at least one block if not two. It may be late in January when I can gather and mail them, but I'm sure it will happen. Thank you SO much for the reminder. Kudos to you and Mrs. Silverhoot. ~G

Looking for information on Airstream logos

Hi, I was hoping someone might know of a source for Airstream embroidery software or designs that can be purchased or shared for a Janome machine. I would love to make some personal items for our 1967 Caravel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am a quilter too but hope this is not off the subject too far. Thank you!

To Minno...Kay, I've sewn three of the valor blocks this morning, simple, quick, and fun to do. I'm a very pokey seamstress and a block takes me only about 35 to 40 minutes to cut and complete. I recommend a few to all our thread readers. I've had at least four responses from quilting friends here. I think I'll come up with more than that, so I can see us producing quite a few blocks to send to you from the quilting day we set up, next week or the week after. They emailed of being "excited" and "honored" to work on the project. Please send me your PM with your address so I'll be able to send these on to you later in January. ~G

Great news on the quilt squares! I'm going on a weekend quilt retreat the end of January and was kind of hoping to have enough to finish a top (or 2) that weekend. As I promised before, ALL blocks will be used!

Kay

A retreat...what fun! I've not been able to send back a reply to your PM so this is just to say I received it and that I'll send on the blocks we created later in January, hopefully in time for you to set during your retreat. Thanks for initiating this fine project. ~Georgia

I'll be sending you at least one block and probably 3 or 4. I just finished cutting out my pieces for my prototype and plan to do some stitching tomorrow. I too, am a very pokey seamstress.

So glad you are doing this! Thank you!

Here's my first block for the Quilt of Valor. I'm thinking the most time involved is in making that first block. I plan on making a few more to send.

Hopefully, practice will make perfect (or at least closer to straighter edges and more consistent finished block sizes.)

Childrens game bags / Foot warmer

Here's two little bags for kids electronic games and such. Needed something padded and cute to take on camping adventures.

And a foot warmer I made for my Mom for Christmas, the inside muslin bag is filled with rice to warm in microwave for 2 min.

Here's to a happy healthy new year filled with inspiring sewing and quilting projects and many camptrips!

Not to worry about block size. I picked that particular star pattern because it is very forgiving and I can resize all the blocks to be the same with none the wiser! Love that block!
Love the bags, Jezibels!

Quilt of Valor

Kay, I put four blocks in the mail to you this morning for the Quilt of Valor.

Let me know if you think you'll come up short of blocks before your retreat at the end of the month and I'll try to get a few more off to you.

I'm a novice quilter so I didn't recognize until after the fact that we are actually making Flying Geese for this star pattern.

Thank you again for coordinating this effort.

Nancy Mac
