I cut 2 7/8" strips vertically and staggered each by 1 1/2" and sewed them together Then cut horizontally, staggered them 1" and sewed them back together.
I think my real one will be a Christmas panel.
Went to the Kaw Valley Quilt Show on Sunday after the Shop Hop was over on Saturday.
It was at Crown Toyota in Lawrence and what a great large space for the show, lots of room for hanging quilts and setting up vendors. Fortunately, the snow didn't amount to enough to keep viewers away on Sunday.
Front right is Jane Anderson's quilt from my pattern. I designed it, Anna Aldman digitized it, Jan Hutchison quilted it and Jane Anderson embroidered and made it. I guess you could say it takes a community. Vernice Flotman's quilt based in my light house pattern, was there too. She's giving it to her grandson, who is graduating from school in California to become a ship captain.

The WSG or Wednesday Sewing Group met today and made caps for kids undergoing surgery. They will get to take their pick of the cap they will wear when they have surgery. And then the cap will be theirs afterwards. About dozen of us sewed on them and at the last count, we had 117 caps with more being added still.
Doesn't it sound like a good project for your group to help in your area. Check with your hospital to get it OK'd and then cut circles and sew a casing in the edge and insert elastic. We made several sizes and even a few little ones for their dolls.

Now I have another quilt partially cut out to do the same. But I'll have to include the cutter and mat since it's supposed to be done in strips and I'm making it scrappy. I'll have to cut some of the pre-cut strips into pieces.
