    First Memory Quilt

    We made a quilt for a retiring 4-H staff person in our county. After all the hard work, not so sure she would ever be able to wash it. I know she has it on a quilt rack display, not a bed. Guess we need to find out more about the picture transfers. Families could either design an eight inch square with fabric makers or they sent us a picture, which we transferred. We added green and white clover squares for more color.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    wow, that quilt turned out beautifully.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
