    What a sad time for the family. A rail fence baby quilt can be done in one day.

    If you make these, make note that they can also be used to cook corn on the cob.

    Yesterday someone posted a pattern from Martha Stewart for a pencil case. It sounded quick and easy ... uses only a placemat abd a shoelace. If you are interested, I'll try to locate the post.

    Sorry about the tiny tot, it is always harder when they are so young. Will pray for her.
    Why not use a Stack and Whack for table runners or table topper? they are nice and quick.

You can tie the back and front fringe together in a knot or just leave the frindge as is. I like the tied in a knot look the best. This is a project you can drag along in the car when on a car trip or on your way to church with the family...just tie off or cut the fringe as time permits. Quicik, easy and a very nice inexpensive gift.
    Thanks for a great idea Feathers!

She's been hospitalized since Monday and passed this morning from the EEE virus which is contracted from mosquito bites.

    Friends of the family are hosting a benefit this Saturday, (in 6 days) and are looking for donations to be raffled off and for food for the benefit. Most everyone has offered up enough food but only one other person has offered something to be raffled by making a Tastefully Simple basket so I volunteered to make stuff for the benefit. I already have two baby blankets that I made and were just sitting around but now I'm looking for some really fast sewing projects to put together as well. I have a pattern for a 10 minute Tablerunner but not a lot of other patterns. Any thoughts?
    Diappearing 9 Patch with only 3 colors of fabrics or the 1600 yard quilt made with a jelly roll (this one is definitely the fastest) or the Strip Search pattern made with a jelly roll.

    You could make a quilt pretty fast using the snowball block for every other block.

    Thanks so much for the ideas! I was planning to start on these projects yesterday but an oversized delivery truck ripped out our electrical lines so I was out of power for most of yesterday. Soooo, I'm going to start this afternoon. We homeschool our daughters so I'm going to get them started and then I'm going to get started.

    Amen FabricAddict! No child should have to fear the bite of a mosquito or playing outside on a summer's night but that's what it's come to. She passed away just two days before her 5th birthday.

    The benefit is this Saturday and tomorrow I'm dropping some things off for the benefit. Some ladies from my quilting group donated ( including one of our own~thanks Betty!), someone else from this board (thanks Sue!) and many others. There's slated to be more than 300 in attendance at the benefit and that's just from the facebook world. The little girl, Maggie Sue, has remained in my prayers since she first fell ill, 8 days before she passed, and her family will now take her place in my prayers.

    Just take random squares, say 6 inch size, sew them together, pin, quilt, binding, and you have a pretty quilt, any size you would like it to be. I especially like to use "kid friendly" prints, and solid colors (like color crayon colors)
