Crazy little 4 patches. I'm making these in batches of 6, 3 for me and 3 to swap out with a fellow quilter. She has a project specific to 3 matching 4 patches, but me, I'm just going to have them in my bag of tricks. Maybe they will be a round in my medallion quilt that I'm working on?
As a quilter, we have the ability to give back in ways that many others cannot. A local business is doing a fund raiser for a family that has lost the father. A little baby is involved and there is going to be a silent auction. I decided to donate a piece to this but I'm always concerned at the amount of money craft items generate. They seem to have such low value to non quilter and I just couldn't bear to see this go for under $200. I spoke with the organizers and we decided to raffle this so 100 tickets @ $5.00 each will generate $500 for this family that is in need of a hand up.
I'm continuing to stay on top of my customer quilts. I've managed to sneak one of my own on right now. It's a log cabin from a few years ago, so far, I'm loving it. Will share once it's off the machine.
