Tomorrow's the Quilt Show

We close with Carmen Rinehart's Star Spangled Santa. It is a thrifty block, Carmen said: "The Santa was a collaborative effort because I got the initial block free at our guild meeting and the beard is a curtain that shredded in the wash which Karen Hansen gave me. (Guess what? I love this because that was a block I made, back in the 90s - and parted with in my year of cleaning out.....)

Come see our minis at the quilt show. There will be 120 mini quilts available for sale. Saturday 10-5, Sunday noon-5. Bidding closes at 4:30 Sunday!
