Happy August! Summer is going by but I am trying to enjoy every moment of it! I think this is the summer for babies. My daughter-in-law and niece both announced they were having babies. I was in Billings last week for a joint baby shower for Megan and one of her friends. I am giving Megan a baby shower this weekend. Yesterday I went to Missoula to buy supplies for it and it seemed like I saw a lot of women who were pregnant. Maybe I am just focused on babies! I must make baby quilts! Happy Quilting, Pam

Jelly Roll Rug Friday August 24th This is such a popular project right now. I have not seen a rug that wasn't super cute and fun! We all have jelly rolls that we bought with good intentions of using and yet they still sit on the shelf. It takes one jelly roll and 2 of Bosal's Katahdin On-A-Roll packages to make a 30" x 44" rug.
Montana! My Heart, My Home or Big Love Wednesday August 29th Show off your love for Montana with either of these wall hangings!

These would make a wonderful gift also!
The Gentle Art of Hand Stitching Thursday August 30th We find hand stitching to be very therapeutic for the soul, even more so with friends!

We can all share ideas and techniques and learn from each other! Note that we switched this group from a Friday to Thursday.
