A YOUNG QUILTER AND A WORTHY ORGANIZATION

Don’t you just love to see young quilters?  Above is Megan, Jill’s 16-year-old daughter and she made this darling cross your hear quilt.
Megan also made this pillow.  She made a full quilt from this pattern too, but I couldn’t get a picture because it is at the quilters. Both of these patterns are from the book Scrap Basket Beauties by Kim Brackett.
Megan, who has been sewing since she was seven years old, also made this delightful wall hanging.
And she is working on this adorable snowman table runner.  Both patterns are from the book Table Please by Art to Heart. I hope Jill has plenty of sewing machines because I think with this new quilter in the house she’s going to need more than one! 
During our last Happy Scrappers’ meeting, Lee Anne showed us this amazing quilt.  She said that she and Chris (shop owner) are making this quilt for a charity called Lori’s Voice.  Lori’s Voice is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which was founded and established to help young people with disabilities. This organization evolved from Lori Hasting's great love for children and the realization of so many challenges young people face when living with a disability.  Lori is Lee Anne’s niece.  This quilt will be donated to the organization for a silent auction during a fund raising dinner dance in September. You can read more about this wonderful organization by going here.
This is a close up of the beautiful fabrics in this king size quilt.

DON’T FORGET
  • Vickie S. will be teaching you how to use the Squedge Tool on Friday, August 15th from 10-2 p.m.  We will learn how to use this tool and make a table topper or table runner (your choice).  The fee for is $10.
  • AQS Quilt Week in Grand Rapids begins Wednesday, August 20th, at DeVos Place Convention Center.
ANOTHER NOTE: 
  • Did you go check out the Row By Row Shop Hop website?  This is a must for anyone traveling.
  • Blooming Poppies has a tutorial for a scrappy handmade hot pad.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I'd love to see the quilt that matches the pillow. That is a really interesting block and would be a great scrap project!
