Blogging quilters are so generous. Maybe it's just quilters in general. When I first started designing items with selvages, Ashley was one of the first people to donate to the cause. In turn I made her a pincushion.
(picture from Film in the Fridge)In turn she offered FMF scraps in exchange for another pincushion. Considering how FMF scraps are like gold, that was an unbeatable offer. And now she is sending me one of these amazing potholders. Thank you, thank you!

When I mentioned I was hooked on hexies, but not really wanting to finish Civil War repro fabric hexies I had started several years ago, another quilter emailed and said, how about a trade? Your hexies for some selvages. Another win-win. And speaking of hexies, I had a little helper this morning. Sometimes it takes a different set of hands to show you a new way of organizing something. It also requires an extreme degree of concentration.
This doesn't have anything to do with quilting, but the other night we went to Todd Beamer Park, a really great new park in town that has lots of fun water features. What a cool way to spend some time on a hot summer night. Pretty much Grandpa's idea of a perfect evening...
