 Congratulations go to Sally (no blog) from Oregon for winning my giveaway!  She has already sent me her address and I will send her prizes to her by Monday.

During the last couple days I have gotten back to work on the quilt for my DIL.  It is a machine appliqué quilt as you can see in this picture.

I have also started making 50 more log cabin blocks as you can see below.  I have a small box that I keep the 1" strips in.
50 half way finished log cabin blocks
 I found out this morning that Fingertip Shopping is having a De-Stash/Linky Party where we can sell items we don't need.  I came up with a few things to sell.  Please email me if you desire to purchase any of these items.  I can then send you an email address where you can pay through Paypal.  I will send the items via first class mail - US only.

Pattern for a twin sized bed quilt designed by my granddaughter.  I wrote the instructions.  $5.00 + $.96 postage.

  1 yard of Civil War reproduction fabric by Judie Rothermel from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Collection - $5.00 + $2.50 postage.

  10. Ruth, are you using any specific type fabric for your log cabins? I have a plastic shoebox full of 1 inch strips in various lengths. I don't want to throw them out but have decided I will never use them. I have also decided I am not going to cut this size any more. Would you like them?
