You are Invited...

Good Friday afternoon to you all!
I've had a couple of productive days working on the new sneak peeks though, sorry.
The only thing I do have to tell on that subject, is one of minor frustration in making 168 half square triangles of what I thought was the perfect size to go on a border, I looked at the strip of triangles with the quilt top and said NO WAY...had to remake in another size.  Good news is that I am much happier with the new size and resulting quilt.  You will see, eventually.
So here is the invitation....
I've been asked to participate  in a Blog Hop, for the month of September, organized by American Patchwork and Quilting!
The subject of the hop is the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge.

  1. I'll be on a quilt retreat and won't have access to my computer but I'll catch up when I get home. Up until last summer I made 20 pillowcases a month for Pillows of Love:, the chairman resigned and the project folded. I made mine using my serger so it was easy to turn out a few in a short time. Maybe the blog hop will give me some ideas for the future.
