The Midwest is no stranger to summer thunderstorms, but this has sure been a crazy summer for storms. Yesterday afternoon the sky turned a very scary green and the wind howled. We did get some decent rain, but it fell horizontally in 70-80 mph winds. The damage here was limited to some tree branches but we heard reports of much worse. We have been lucky so far.
No sewing happened yesterday, but I can share more holiday weekend sewing. . .
Over several years of membership in the local quilt guild I've collected a LOT of the 6" "travel squares" that is a club tradition. When members travel somewhere we try to bring back fabric that reminds us of the place we visited. With our relatively small membership it takes about 1.5 yards to cut a 6" square to give to each member when we return.
My first quilt using these was a star quilt with the center of each star being one of these fun little squares. They are usually too cute to cut smaller.
