Spring, make that SUMMER weather is here!
It's so much easier getting out of bed with the sun shining
and the birds chirping.
Don't you agree?

Want to share a little project I made
for my quilting friends at Guild.
A Matchbook Needle Keeper.

Isn't it just the cutest?

Easy-Peasy to make.
Here are the directions.
Since I had only boring white cardstock on hand
I needed to pump it up a bit.
Sew......I ironed Steam A Seam 2 on the back of cute fabric,
 then pressed the fabric onto the cardstock.
It worked!
Who knew? 

On Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the
WI Quilt Study Group meeting in Madison.
Janette Dwyer spoke about her favorite subject
"My girl Ruby" 
 Have you heard of Ruby Short McKim?
She is nationally known as a quilt designer of the 1920s and 1930s.
A woman ahead of her time!
For both her creative and business talents.
Janette bought lots of quilts and patterns to share.

Her enthusiasm for Ruby is contagious!
I purchased the Roly Poly Circus pattern.
You know I love redwork!
Here is a picture of the quilt I found on Google.
With all the projects I have going maybe I will get this made for 
 my great-grandchildren?

Check out this beautiful customer quilt.
Jean did a fabulous job working with flannel.
Pictures are from this winter but hey......
I forgot to show it.

The backing flannel is so cozy.

Well, I'm off to machine is calling.
Quilt On.
