Hi all, just joined recently and Im wondering if there are any Florida gals out there. I live near northern Tampa. It might be fun to share some local news about quilt shops , meetings, expos, meetups and fun stuff in general.
My name is Pauline aka pollio1940. You may guess what the
1940 stands for.
Have a great day.
PS This is my first blog ever. Hope I do it right. For me, its like talking to old friends.

Yesterday I started cutting them with my 60 degree ruler. This is what I ended up with. How fun is that!!!
I used fabrics for the border I have had for a very long time.It is some of my favorite and I forgot all about it in a cupboard. I love fabric with stars and most every quilt I have done has star

On a whim I decided to make this for my grandson's Graduation/Going away party. He has enlisted in our Military and will be leaving in September. I did not have much time so it is very simple, started cutting squares on Friday, finished the quilt on Monday.
