I'm a guest blogger over at Sew We Quilt @ Stash Manicure

Yes, even though I had to endure bonehead English in college, I am a guest blogger over at Sew We Quilt @ Stash Manicure!
Probably the scariest thing I have done in recent years, besides get my scuba certification.
Big hugs to M. Samm for even considering me for this honor!
And a bigger hug to my editor-in-chief, Rosie, for giving me my lead in lines.
My focus is charitable donations and the tutorial I provided is geared towards FAST, FUN, and NO FUSS quilt piecing.  I know, so out of the box for me, the precision piecer, but I did have a blast putting the quilt together.  I had so much fun that I have started another one that is red, white and blue and will go to the Quilts of Valor organization. I would encourage you to collect those orphan fabrics and make a quilt designated for a charitable organization of your choice.  There are so many of them out there that would love your contribution, no matter how humble.

In other news, I finished a doll quilt from Kathleen Tracy's new book, The Civil War Sewing Circle.  It is her Shoofly Doll Quilt.
I also bound my Calico Comfort quilt and can take it off my UFO/WIP priority list.
Now on to the next project~
perhaps my album quilt, now that I have all the 'out of town' signatures collected.

Terrific project at Stash Manicure for a most worthy cause. Your signature black touches are dynamite! My new favorite word - pretties.

Just catching up with blog posts and congratulations on a great post for Stash Manicure. The pattern could definitely come in useful for a fast and eye catching project. Your Shoo Fly quilt showcases a lovely combination of fabrics. Quite different in character to the Calico Comfort but no less attractive. Well done.

Love your Shoefly quilt and Calico Comfort! You did a great job on your fabric selections. What is the pink fabric you used in the Shoefly quilt?
