Thank you!  It really is a very easy block.  Go to youtube.com and check out Jenny Doan's tutorial on the Easy Cathedral Windows.  You can actually chain piece it the way she shows it.  I will probably make another one but later.

While waiting for all the pieces and parts to come together on the quilt I'm working on I wanted to make some summer tops for preschool aged DGDs.  The problem, I want to use cotton, which  really doesn't work for DD style and Joanne's didn't have anything that I liked .                         Light bulb moment to day when I was in the city,  I went to a thrift store and bought four large sized men's dress shirts, cotton with wrinkle release. Not to mention I paid less than what it would cost for a yard of fabric,

good for you...and the planet! upcycle those old shirts...

I have not had any reports of problems with t shirt fabric "running".  And I've stopped going around/avoiding the logo too.  It doesn't pierce some of them, but as long as you aren't running too fsat, the thread doesn't skip or fray - I use superior threads so fine.  If I go too fast it will fray, but the tension stays fine.

My DD asked for a polymer clay dragonfly to put in her garden. I have some metallic clay that I used for the wings of this critter so I'm calling it a dragonfly.  wink

This is what I finished up last week.  Its for DH as he is involved with a dirt track race team and is always saying gears matter.  It is an adaption of Rob Appel's Gears pattern.  None of the picture I took show it but a doodle quilted race cars in the dark grey area.  I stitched "gears matter" in the top blue and "green flag drops: now" in the bottom lt blue.  In the border I used the same color thread and you can only see it up close, I stitched some of the sponsors.

I hope everyone is finding a little time to relax b sewing and finding joy in life.
