Bed Scarf

Gary opened his birthday present over the week-end so
now I can publish a picture of his bed scarf. 
Christine says that his feet get cold so this is a perfect solution. 
I posted a picture of the 9 patch squares last week.

Now I can show a picture of the entire Bed Scarf.

Bed Scarves have started to become popular to
dress-up a plain bedspread.
Put them over the end of the bed
and you have an entirely new look.

They are also useful to keep your feet warm
when you don't need the rest of you
to be overly warm.

I hope he hangs it over his deck on July 4th.

Mail Delivery

The mailman left me a great book the other day. 
I have joined a survey group and every now
and then after I complete a survey
the mailman leaves me a nice parcel. 
I almost bought this book
when we were in Duluth
but instead chose another one.

I am so glad that I did not buy this book. 
A nice freebie.

Mixed Bouquet  - so pretty

Fly into Spring

There is also a tutorial on making flying geese and each unit makes
4 matching flying geese units. 
A real time saver when making so many.

You start off with a 9 1/2" square and an 11" square and
then use the Eleanor Burns
Large Flying Geese Ruler.
But you don't have to use it to make these units.

This one is called Linked Together

I have already started to make the smaller version.

Block A

Block B

This book is full of quilts of all sizes as well as table runners and table toppers. 
They are all designed for Fat Quarters, Strips and Squares.

I can't wait to finish this one and go onto the next.
