Sew to speak Jan/Feb 09
pick a peck
Making “a string” of Pick a Peck hot pads, Sept/Oct ‘08 (No. 123), was a fun and easy way to get back into sewing after the summer break. I added an apple to the mix, but the sweet corn is everyone’s favorite. As a former Iowan, it’s usually disappointing to sow sweet corn in Norway, but one can always sew a good ear.
I wanted to make a special quilt for my neighbors who are having a new baby and found Hangin’ with the Kitties, Nov/Dec ’05 (No. 106). My son, Brad, takes care of their cats when they are out of town, so I knew they would appreciate a kitty quilt.

We have made many quilts from QUILTMAKER Project Linus patterns for Make-a-Blanket Day. These two Single Scoop quilts, Jan/Feb ‘06 (No. 107), were fun to make. We found great ice cream and sherbets to fill our perfect waffle cones.
