if you think you might like to order one. This is one of the nicest racks I have seen. As I walked through my house I saw many possibilities of where I could put it and just might have to order a couple more.
My 15 year old niece was here and she decided to make a Halloween quilt for her bed. Nothing I could say or do, including pinning, helped her sew a 1/4 inch seam. After she sewed her blocks into rows, I squared them up and after she got her rows sewed together, I squared the sides. I added the containment border and the spider border, her grandmother quilted it and I added the binding. A lot of the sashing was lost when I squared up the blocks. She was so relieved when I told her she could just make a lap quilt instead of a queen size one. She told me she will NEVER EVER become a quilter, just too hard. She is very close to having a black belt in karate and she is trying out for the youth symphony in Denver, two things I would NEVER EVER want to do.
I decided to join a quilt-a-long. http://annalenaland.com/2012/09/20/tessellating-cross-tutorial/
The goal is to make one block a day for 90 days. Since I had all the stuff out I decided to make a bunch all at once. Super easy and went together quickly.
This quilt is going to a Sarah's Church's Ministry, http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/
I just love this time of year, when I can add another quilt or two to the bed. I love the weight of two or three quilts, it is so cozy and warm. I even think I sleep better. We only have one blanket and it is an electric one on my mother's bed, with two quilts on top of it.
I think in 2013 I will keep track of how much fabric comes in and goes out. I will continue making quilts for Ronald's House as I am so grateful that my grandgirls are healthy. I will continue making quilts of valor for the men and women who protect our country and keep my family safe.
