One thing at a time

For the last couple of weeks I've been busy making Pillows. It all started when two representative of The San Jose Quilt Museum came to visit my daughter, Sarah's classroom. At the end of their visit, each of the kids got to make a quilt square. Their teacher then decided to use them in some way for their annual fundraiser. When Rachael had the same class, I made the blocks into a quilt and then the quilt was auctioned off at the fundraiser. However, there was an issue with how much the quilt should be valued at. So this year, we decided to just ask for money to go directly to the fundraiser. The parents paid me and the school and each child was then given a pillow with their square incorporated into it. So 20 pillows later, here we go...

Now I finally got to start working on Marie Antionette, one of our wonderful quilts for the store. It's a beauty. I've got it all cut out and am working diligently on the blocks.

So that's the latest for now!!!

What a wonderful project Eli--and you never said a word!!! Look at all those happy faces with their very own pillows. I'm very proud of you. The new quilt you are working on is going to be gorgeous too. Can't wait to see it "in the flesh". See you Friday! Sue
