Judy, your scrap quilts are beautiful! I especially love the first one you designed...such creativity!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Lynnie if she is a neat freak she will get a kick out of doing this. If you can afford say $40 for the day do that if you cant you say I wish I could give you more but $20 is all I have. its tax free bucks she gets to do what she likes and helps you in the process. If you cant afford the money offer to make dinner for her as a thank you. A pot of soup and a loaf of bread is a nice gift also. My girl who helps me cleans for $40 but when I cant afford that we do food trades.she is good with that. or borrows the truck in exchange for.. and when I can I lend her what she is needing say pay a few days before the work.. I am on ssi also and there is not much cash in that so I get it. you can offer say to make her placemats or.. if she doesnt sew. if she sews let her have a choice of some fabric (you had better pick it out or you lose your favorites for sure).. bake her something. a cake as a thank you. get creative. we already know you are
off to work on some scrappies as well best way I can think of to get rid of them. My vote on quilt along we all do say one block a week purely scraps NOT pulled these four yards going to make a quilt.. creative scraps even if they are color toned but scraps and show our work with each other. I also vote on sampler type blocks as well no uniformity there and sorry Rhonda but blocks without templates. I can not print templates so maybe others can not either this way we all can play. just a thought... (like out of a zillion scrappy members that would count lol)
Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
They're all terrific but the blue one is my favorite!! It is wonderful!
I can't believe it, this thread stopped coming to me a couple weeks ago. I was wondering where everyone was, just figured busy busy busy, so I added the thread again. But I had to go back and look at everything since Christmas to see what I missed. Lots of pretty quilts posted.

the tumbler pattern is a fun one to make in a scrappy look.

I think a quilt a long would be fun as long as I could use fabric i already have and don't need to buy any.
OH, Rhonda, I was wondering about the template and were I was going to get a description or something to trace. I can make my own from plastic if that works and I have something to trace....like the books and magazines do. Otherwise, I'll PM you my email (address?).

Elizabrat thanks for the sage advice.

The tumbler is a great idea. I did a charm 24 yrs ago, 1144 dif pcs.
