    I dont know, what got into me. I've got 3 thing's going on at once. the 1st thing going on, is Im makeing block's for my long arm lady friend. I took 6 quilts to her, for my grdkids. I told her I would make 24 blocks for her, to help with 3 of the 6 quilts, she has. I already had 24 blocks for the first 3 quilt's.. So I'm working 24 blocks for her now. There all the same colors, except the center part of the block. There all going to have a different colored star. Before the 24 block's I started on makeing a DBLE wedding ring quilt. I'm 1/2-3/4 done, with it. Next I went to a quilt meeting, sunday, in Hills, Iowa. The fabric shop is called--Inspirations--and the phone # is 1-319-679-2207. She passed out a tool, she came up with called a WEDGE. I will post picture of everything.. If anyone has ???'s you can email me. I will post the web sight, and the phone # again.

    Great to see you on board again Don. I had heard there was a quilt shop in Hills but haven't stopped there yet. Will have to make time next time we go to Iowa City. Your projects look great!

    They're beautiful! Looks like you have your hands full.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Is the "wedge" a miter tool? I have one that looks awfully similar to it.

    Hi Don. You're doing a great job, as always. LOVE that quilt shop. Don't get up there often enough. It truly is inspirational, just like their name. Everyone is so helpful, etc. Lots of fabric and samples. Anyway, I didn't catch what that wedge was for....do you mind telling? Did it have something to do with that braided piece you sent?

    Jenny Doan of MQC has a video using the Mitering tool for joining the ends of binding on our quilts. She used it to make a table runner and it looks like the wedge tool you show. Guess we need to use our tools for more than what they are marketed for.
    Keep up the good work on the lovely projects.

    Don, there is a group of us that gets together here regularly, and you would be more than welcome to drop by to give us some tips and tricks. Of course, we would need a trunk show. All of this you could do in your spare time for sure. No rush. lol
