Design Wall

I joined an exchange at the local quilt shop. You buy the paper in the photo for 2 1/2 in squares. You turn them in unpressed with papers on. As many as you turn in, you get back in the fall when they divide the squares up. It is easy. I have 13 sheets of paper that make 28 squares.I made three yesterday afternoon.  Mom and I divided a pack of paper up. It will be a true scrap quilt. Of course there is a book to buy for ideas but one idea was a tree of life quilt that I like. Let's see what EQ6 can offer me for pattern idea.

I have quilted 3 little table runners this weekend for the craft sale. I decided I have about 12 or so big and little items that need to be bound so I started on that too.

I decided to join the guild in August. So I spent time decided what quilt to enter in the October quilt show. I will run my ideas by the committee so I will let you know. Lots of thinking this weekend, huh?

DS started drivers training and already is behind the wheel. I found I need to apply for replacement birth certificate and stuff. Ugh those papers are hard for me to keep track of. I did find a copy but not the original/official copy. I found his immunization record but no social security card. Too many moves!!!

Have a great Monday. See what every one else is doing a

Love this idea for a swap! I'm going to tell my Calendar Girls group about it.

I like that scrap idea too! Sounds like you are having a great craft sale going on very soon.

Good luck with finding the paperwork. We have not moved in 20 years and it is still hard to keep track of all that stuff!
