Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, has been quoted as saying “change is the only constant in life.” Boy, those old guys really knew what they were talking about! We thought we had a good handle on what Helping Hands would look like for 2020... but it's changing again! We "thought" that we would be learning a new block every other month and during the alternating months, we will practice those blocks, creating LOTS of blocks to be utilized in our wonderful Comfort quilts! NOT SO FAST!
We're looking for a snazzy new name for this block of time as new activities come up - In April, Terri Seifert from Ben Franklin will hold an afternoon class on Pineapple Quilts. You can purchase the Creative Grids Pineapple Ruler from Terri (plus, of course, fabric from Ben Franklin).
Need 'somthing' to sew?
If you could use a break from sewing on your latest quilt, we could use a few sewers to put together quilt backings for some of our comfort quilts - we've got some tops ready, but we're low on backings. Can you help? If so, please contact Jody at email@example.com, or 262-719-8528.
