Brown Paper Packages has a really cute way to use scraps and make a baby quilt.  The Scatter Sunshine Quilt is very simple and very pretty.  This is truly a scrappy quilt and I think they also call these a "crumb" quilt.

Samelia's Mum has two clever quilts that she shares with us.  The first is called 1 + 2 and is easy and great looking.  I really liked the Fresh Diamonds quilt and I have learned to love half square triangles so this is a good one to practice on.

Piece n Quilt has a nice pattern for jelly rolls and it makes an Irish Chain style quilt with appliqued flowers. I think this quilt would fit the bill for our quilt show in October.  It is called Gobble Chain.  It's also very large if you need a Big quilt!

If you love Log Cabin Quilts, you will need to get this free ebook about making them and sizing them. This is offered by Landauer Quilt Books and Beyond.

If you're doing spring cleaning and come upon a bunch of antique hankies, here's a great idea to use them by Polka Dot Chair.  It looks so sweet and so is the little baby posing on it.

Anyone who couldn't make it to our Monday night meeting can still get in on making our wrist pincushion.  I will bring the extra kits and try to make it by late morning or early afternoon to show you how to make it or help with a "re-do" for those who had difficulties.  It can be fixed if you don't like how yours turned out.

Also, the tickets for the raffle quilt are now available so please think about who will absolutely need to buy tickets from you for our lovely quilt.  Stay warm.  Diana
