MAM's Become a Flimsy


The MAM's (Mile a Minute) blocks were begging to be put into a flimsy. I listened and put together a 6 X 8 setting. (The picture is a 8 X 6 setting) The blocks were trimmed to 8 inches square. I sewed them together in no set order just trying to have different type of fabrics next to each other. First I made twosi's, then foursi's adding two more while still in the machine. I have enough blocks remaining for another top this size.

I find the "no rules" very refreshing not to mention being able to sew mindless and have a beautiful top.

There are some other items I have been working on which I can not show. It would spoil the surprise.

Our Artful Bra's are now on ebay. The link is HERE. When you get to the ebay site type in Artful Bra. There are 50 bras up for bid (10 day time frame) I have two: Lily Padded and 'Love and Peace'. The web site is also accessable from the Quilters of SC web site listed below.
Also if you'd like to purchase a Bra Book they can be found at http://www.quiltersofsc.org/

Proceeds from the sale of the Bras and the books will benefit "the best chance network" which pays for mammograms and PAP smears for uninsured and under insured women. Together we can stop the spread of cancer.
