The quilt shown here, I made for my dad who was also in the Air Force. His rank (Staff Sergeant) is represented by the stripes in the top right corner (as you're looking at the picture) with the old Air Force wings in the bottom right, and the new Air Force wings in the top left.I had cousins who fought in the Vietnam War, all of whom came home safely and I currently have three nephews on active duty and a niece in the guard. Every year I watch the Memorial Day Concert from DC and one day hope to attend in person. To all the Veterans and to our young men and women currently on active duty, I'd just like to say thank you for your service to your country and Aim High. Go Air Force!New Free Pattern - Chain of Roses....Kaye uses her View & Do Octagon Shape for this Chain of Roses pattern. Using Kaye's View & Do Octagon Shapes, you can easily create this rose themed "woven" table runner. The strips that frame each octagon interweave to make an interesting background for the roses.

I found at our local thrift store a tri-folded soft case that new Mothers get in the diaper bags given to them at the hospital. They are basically waterproof, and zippered so I can pack all my quilting supplies needed for a road trip or whatever. I then started looking for more of them and have several now, that I have organized different projects into so I can pick up the bag and project and be ready to sew. People do look at me a little funny when they see my Peter Rabbit bag, but they love it once they see what all is inside....VickiReader's Funny Stories.... My worst disaster was one of my first attempts at piecing a quilt. I cut out some templates (yes I'm that old) cut out different fabric using several different shaped templates. After several hours of cutting I was totally confused. I had a bunch of fabric cut into shapes and I had no idea what to do next, so I did the only smart thing at the time. I tossed them in the trash. I learned having a plan is always a good start....LindaAsk Kaye....
Sharon asks: I recently acquired about 35 hand pieced quilt tops. What a treasure trove! I'd like to finish the quilts but my problem is that many of them have yellowed areas where the pieces were folded. They do not seem to be water damaged. I have seen solutions to this problem before but since they didn't apply to me at the time the information did not stick with me. I wonder if others might be in this same predicament. Could you please address this again and let us know how you would go about removing this yellowing or is it hopeless? Thank you....Sharon
That's all for this week
