        This is a photo of the Quilt I made my grandson for Christmas. The Sailboats are paper pieced from a pattern I purchased on-line. The fabric block is called Coastal Seagulls, used red on red for inner border and binding. The outer border is Seaport Summer and last but not least the back is done with Coastal Lighthouses. This was a great project to take on a quilting retreat I attended in April. I started quilting three years ago, paper piecing two.

        Tips From Our Readers....

        Have found the most useful clips for hand sewing on binding on your quilt. I use little clips that look like hair brats. They are available in some quilt shops and recently shared them with my quilter friend from Holland who took most of mine along to show her friends. I bought some more and was told this is an item that is really taking off no more pins for sewing on binding A package of 30 is about 5 dollars....Nel

        Many years ago, I would set my hair in pin curls. The clips I used for them I now use to hold my binding in place as I hand sew the back....Jean

        Funny Stories From Our Readers....

        My Grandson, Gaige and I would make potholders for Christmas out of scraps of quilting fabric. He was six at the time. He would sit on my lap and say "GO", and I would work the foot pedal. One time I was ironing and Gaige said that he would sew alone. I said no but he insisted. He sat down at the sewing machine, placed fabric under the foot, lowered the foot and said "GO". He kept saying "GO" and he couldn't figure out why it wouldn't go. I told him I had to be there with him or the sewing machine wouldn't work. I didn't want him sewing alone just yet. I still haven't told him about the foot pedal....Joanna

        To Ponder....

        "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and have missed. I've failed over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed." Michael Jordan

        "The only time you don't fail is the last time you try anything-and it works." William Strong

        "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm." Sir Winston Churchill

        "Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail." Confucius

        "Failure doesn't mean you are a failure...it just means you haven't succeeded yet." Robert Schuller

        That's all for this week....

        Have a great week everyone from
