"Fat Quarters" are not the heaviest part of your body
Your ironing board is always set up but you never iron
You think of your job as an interruption of your quilting
You pet Fabric
People are always picking threads off you
You can measure a scant 1/4 by eye
"Featherweight" Doesn't mean Boxer
Your "UFO's" are not from outer space
You clean your sewing room and your family thinks you’re leaving.

Iessie feels that it is these small actions that will eventually lead to a better relationship between the different races and cultures in this country. Much like a quilt, the eventual result will be beautiful.

At the bottom of every post (new entry) you will note a little envelope. Clicking on this will allow you to e-mail the post to your fellow quilters. Group leaders can make use of this to keep their members informed.
I don't know everything so it would be appreciated if members can forward any news, photos, dates, projects to my personal e-mail address. Your group leader should be able to get this from the Chairperson or the address list.
This blog is for all of us and if you spot any mistakes I would like you to let me know about these as well. Let's keep the blog alive!!
