Half Square Triangle Block Test

In my last E-mail, I told you that I was going to have a free class in the shop to try out all the different products for making half square triangles (HST’s) such as Thangles, Tada Triangles, Triangles on a Roll and Triangle Papers.

It was a lot of fun, but I can’t say we came to any consensus. Each method had advantages and disadvantages, which changed depending on the size of the project.

Also in my last post, I asked for helpers to test a block of the month. Thanks to all those lovely ladies – several of whom went above and beyond the call of duty – the pattern is done! I donated it to the Block of the Month website, and you can see it at http://bomquilts.com/

Is your guild looking for a public service project? We heard from Monique Browning, I am a Volunteer Coordinator with Heartland Hospice Fayetteville/Riverdale. (http://www.hcr-manorcare.com/ ) She is looking for finished quilt donations from quilt guilds or their terminally ill patients. If you think your group might be interested, you can contact her at 404-556-9853 or by email mbrowning@hcr-manorcare.com.

Last but not least: Have you ever wondered about what the icons on your computer do when you are away? A hidden camera captured this action: http://www.xs4all.nl/~jvdkuyp/flash/see.htm
