Deb finished a quilt using some of Mark Lipinski’s (of the Quilters Home magazine fame) line of fabric called Katmandu. This pattern is great for beginners (because the designer takes you through step by step and includes great pictures) as well as those who are more advanced but looking for a quick to make project. You can do all squares or make the triangles, fun fun!

I recently finished putting together my vest that I had quilted and posted pictures of a little while ago. I absolutely love this vest pattern (LOVE the Favorite Things designers) and love being able to pick fabric to go with shirts that I already have. Batik fabric is my fabric of choice for these vests because it washes and wears so well. Into the washer, into the dryer, give it a good shake and hang it up. They also seem to travel well; even after being folded and squashed in a suitcase they still look good when you pull them out. I have two of these vests now and have been wearing them quite often with our sometimes cool spring weather when you don’t really need a coat.

On Saturday May 3rd the volunteers got together to make quilts for Whitefish Township EMS, which is our local volunteer ambulance crew. The quilts are carried with the crew in the ambulances and are given to seriously injured or ill folks who are transported to the hospital. Eight quilts were completed on May 3rd for a total of 215 quilts that have been made and donated so far. The two quilts that are pictured are made from the 55 quilt squares that were made during National Quilting Day on March 15th. (See my March 24th posting of our National Quilting Day activities.) A BIG THANK YOU to all of the wonderful women and men that spend time with us to make these quilts.

I am off to finish a new sweatshirt jacket I have been working on. ‘Till next time, happy crafty and remember “All Threads Lead to Paradise!”
