    Default The Flimsies from the CA trip

    I went to CA for two weeks with DH while he was on a business trip and had nine, 9 hour days to sew. These are what I managed to put together. All will go to the Women's Advocacy Center when I get them quilted. Overall I am pleased with them with the exception of the one that I used paler fabrics in. In retrospect I should just have used fewer blocks and made it smaller. Next time I will know. All four were made with layer cakes using Jenny's Disappearing Pinwheel patterns.

    I leave with him on Saturday for a two week trip to Cleveland so will repack my sewing cases and will again have nine, 9 hour days. I think on this trip I will take a bunch of charm squares and make smaller lap size quilts.
