    I found the stripe fabric at mill end textiles and couldn't decide how to use it. Well here it is. I'm planning on making it twin size and donating it to IHN. You may need your sunglasses

    IHN is Interfaith Hospitality Network.

    it is a program for homeless families with children. They sleep in the churches on air beds. (Each church hosts the families for one week at a time). The parents get counseling and help with job searches, etc. Each church provides a driver for the van to get everyone to school or the dayhouse and provide the evening meal. The success rate is very high. Great program.

    No sunglasses needed here. I love bright colors and I love the quilt. I am cutting out several. #1 is called Old Glory and it is an old pattern. I am giving it a new look. #2 is a DWR that will have lots of bright colors in it. Old Glory was making toooooo many good scraps to toss. I re-purposed from one that I had cut out a few yrs ago. it was during my turquoise phase. I just love color
