I am hosting a team for The American Cancer Society's Relay for life event being held for the first time in my home town of DeBary Florida. I rallied my quilting friend Leah to help to make a quilt for donation this Saturday. Could have picked an easier pattern, but I wanted the quilt to be something special. The pattern is called First Monday, by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. My local quilt shop in Orange City, Accent on Quiltint, has donated all of the material!! I am was amazed at there response,
Got some chili made and into the freezer for use on "I don't feel like cooking" days. Found an interesting recipe for Onion Bisque that I think I'll try. I love good onion soup, but have only tried it at home a couple of times.
I was reminded that a deadline was upon me for making a little quilt for AAQI for January. Don't want to spoil my one-a-month record!
I already had the fabric I wanted to use, so I put it together quick quick. I hand quilted it and

I have been talking to Kris at Quiltbug.com and she tells me that she will be hosting a FREE mystery quilt on Super Bowl Sunday. She can't give me any details as of yet because her testers are still finishing the final details, but she will let me know as soon as the info for yardage is posted and I will get it to you
In the mean time, please

I searched high and low for a border from fabrics in my stash. I'm trying to not buy more fabric! Couldn't find anything, so found a great fabric online and ordered it. When it

So this quilt looks like classic 1930s.

I just finished binding my new quilt. It turned out much better than I expected and is made up entirelyof HSTs. I hired a local longarm quilter which was a wise decision and a lot more economical that I thought it would be. My fabric cost 4 times as much as the longarm service.

We got about 7 inches of snow yesterday. Not really that much but I'm going to stay home all day and work on my quilts! Doesn't get much better than this!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I have finished my quilts and washed and dried them. 2 of them ragged beautifully, but the other 3 did not. Does anyone have any suggestions about what I can do to get them to rag. They are all flannel. I remember a recent post about someone who had the same problem, but can not find it.
