Quilts of Valor

16 Feb 2012

I wanted to share a beautiful story from Lynne of Page Arizonia.  Quilt of Valor is a  project that was started in July of last year. These ladies pieced all of these quilts and then Lynne quilted them. Each quilt was bound and labeled by the volunteers.  The quilts were finished just in time to be mailed on Veterans Day November 11, 2011 and the troops received them just before Christmas!

Design Team Wednesday~Simple Spring Skirts

08 Feb 2012


  One reason that Liz and I started our blog was to show everyone that if we could sew, then basically anyone could.  We sometimes feel like we are living out Gusteau's line from the movie Ratatouille, when he said, "Anyone can cook!"   But we have changed it to "Anyone can sew!"    And we will prove it to you.  First there's me, Elizabeth, the girl who loved to sew in Junior High (I owe all my skills to Ms. Busto) but quit when she cared too much about what others thought of the Home Ec classes she was taking ... ...read more
