Sharon and I took a quilting class,
One Block Wonder.
It is all about the cutting,
pinning, cutting. The sewing
is the easy part!
The teacher's quilt,
Ready to sew.
I picked a Sis Boom print,
excited to see how it unfolds!
Sharon with the teacher,
her first quilt class, so proud
of my quilting friend!
Same fabric, just cut differently!
Blocks coming together...
I tend to sew in "factory" fashion.
Goes faster for me.
The teachers's quilt.
The original fabric along side the finished blocks,

Jackie, the owner/teacher became

More student examples.
Love the colors and flow of the fabric.

The "Paper Trail" rolled into
Westport and let us make
lots of fun things, using lots
of cool machines, tools and inks.
The Great American Stamp Store
is a fun place!

Embossed it and then inked it.
Also, made boxes,

April is Donate Life Month.
Flags across America is a program
we try to get all towns across the USA
to fly a Donate Life flag at their
Town Hall for the month of April.
Today, I visited both Westport and Weston,
Town Halls, hope they will fly our flag!
Weston Town Hall
Be creative every day!
That is my motto.
My friend Barrie loves to be creative too!
We came up with a swap, she made
me this beautiful afgan, I LOVE it!!!
I will treasure it always.
I am working on a quilt for her.
Thank you Barrie!
Tonight was the annual Bird House Walk
for Westport's Project Return.
Local people make "Bird" art and
it is auctioned off at the Gala in
a few weeks. Local shops showcase
the donated art.
Today was the first day of Spring
along with be the warmest day
of the year so far.
Perfect night to stroll along
Main Street and see the fun art!
Marc Litvinoff is a great photographer
and he donated a beautiful
"Bird" house photo on metal,
Sharon Litvinoff is a great quilter
and she donated this very cool
"Modern" owl quilt!
