everyones quilts

yesterday I browsed the photos of quilts. there were so many with no comments on them. We all need to encourage everyone by at least letting each other know, we saw your effort and you get at least an E for effort. a like takes very little time. A pat on the back is so encouraging makes you want to start another project. Makes you feel good and makes you know others are interested.And you are learning. Each quilt we make takes a lot of time planning and effort to finish.and aren't we all…

County Fair challenge

Rogue - The County Fair theme is "Ahoy, There" -- I guess, because Port Townsend, the county seat, is a Victorian Seaport.  The booth showcases these challenge quilts, which will all go to Hospice after the fair is over, and it is one of our opportunities to sell tickets for our raffle quilt, which is also on display.
