The new year has been cold so far. Of course, it is winter. The quilting bug has got me again. Started off with an easy pattern - Tumbler Flag Quilt. I enjoyed using my Accuquilt tumbler die cut pattern to cut out the lap sized quilt. While I was at it, I cut a second one out and taught a young lady in our town her first quilt lesson. We enjoyed this afternoon and she did a great first time job. Hopefully, she will continue learning and enjoying sewing. I intend to give my quilt to one of our soldiers who will be leaving once again for Iraq. I hope we can all keep our service men and women and their families in our prayers and thoughts.
