I've been diligently working on my Heartfire quilt. So has Quilt Sue. Sue is adding some applique to her centers which I think is a great idea. I LOVE the Midwinter Red fabrics by Minick and Simpson!
I made a collage of blocks which will help me experiment with different fabrics for the setting triangles. Warning.....the blocks are addictive! I'll put a tutorial together on the block's construction. There are a few little tricks I use with my ruler when I trim each strip.
On another subject, we always try to attend any school function or sporting event in which are grandchildren participate. This time is so precious and memorable, and we don't want to miss a thing.
Last Sunday was a very special event for our very special granddaughter, Emily. Emily was born with congenital cataracts almost 11 years ago. Her vision may be impaired, but her spirit and will is strong. After seeing The Hunger Games and reading the book, she decided she wanted to try archery.
She joined 4-H and became a member of the archery team.
There was a tournament last weekend which was a fundraiser for breast cancer. Each girl shot 40 arrows and scores were taken after each round of 4 arrows.
Emily's cheering section was so proud of her! She's happily displaying her target showing many arrows found and made their mark. I know Emily is going to make her mark on the world in a positive way.
Never give up. Never think you can't do something because YOU CAN DO IT! YOU GO GIRL!
P.S. Here's a link to another post that I wrote about Emily 2 years ago when she started quilting.
