Happy Columbus Day
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...
that is all that I can remember.
Today I had to spend time with my dear old friend, my sewing machine. I always write "remember to thread your needle every day" and I mean it. I love my parents and it is fun to see new places but I feel out of sorts if I do not sew a little something. I am trying to finish up a quilt that I am making for my dear brother in law. He likes to go bowling. I found some neat bowling fabric at Mary Jo's but I did not know what I was going to do with it. My friend Paulette came to Colonial Quilt Lovers to teach Deb Tucker's "Rapid Fire Hunter's Star" using one of Deb Tucker's rulers.

I had a lot of fun piecing this quilt. It was fast, fun and easy! Best of all I knew how I was going to quilt it. It usually takes my longer to figure out how I am going to quilt something than to make it. Luckily this quilt spoke to me.
Remember to thread you needle every day!
