  1. Jeans Quilt

    by , 11-01-2011 at 04:25 PM
    I am almost finished with a jeans quilt. I plan to use a light weight flannel for the backing. Any suggests for a material for the quilt binding? Since the person I am sending the quilt to lives in Florida, do not want to use too heavy of a material.

    Be sure to put down a couple of layers of coffee filters to keep the dirt inside the
    pots. And if the pit is way too big for the soil bundle, you can put a few foam
    peanuts in to make up some space.

I know I can do better than what they run at the store. It does change my plans for the year as I will not be able to do applesauce or more tomatoes.

    I also plundered mom and dads house. He has a fruit orchard and the pears this year were abundant. Since they do not use them, I grabbed them to can. One tree probably

    I took my GFG in the car as my travel quilting and almost completed a whole rosette. I started the project while pregnant with youngest almost three years ago and have been plugging
