Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Segments, sections and blocks....


My goal is to have this quilt top done by the end of  this month.

My segments are all made for the next step of this quilt.


...and half of the sections are now made



so, one of those with one of these....



will make this....



which is half of this.....



a whole block.  So, the next time you see any of these pieces, it WILL be a quilt top.

But now I have a dilema.  My little travel Rowenta that I love using for my piecing is just not steaming  anymore.



I think it is dying.  It is heating, but not enough to make steam.  So, I guess a new one is in order unless you have a suggestion for a great little, travel, steam iron.

Now, I would like to show you the birthday exchange stars that I have received so far.


I have, also, received a beautiful red and white star from Sharon over at http://grassrootsquilting.blogspot.com/ all in honor of the Red and White quilt show that is in New York City.  It's beautiful  and both red and white are in dots....which I love.  Thank you Sharon!



Here's a little article on the Red and White Quilt Show.


Until next time!

    Those birthday blocks look terrific all grouped together. I'm anxious to see how you chose to set them.
