We all have those sleepless nights, so I decided to start on my small quilt challenge  for May.  As I was chain-stitching the four-patches, I ran out of thread....but did not realize it until there was a little pile of squares sitting there....unstitched!   And I thought I was making such good use of a sleeples night!  
I think this is going to be a fun little quilt, especially since I love stars.

May the 4th be with you

Even Darth Vader has to eat breakfast!  This is what my daughter found at her breakfast table today...Caleb is 7.  Just had to share with you since it is the 4th!
May the 4th be with you!

Small quilt finished!

Since the beginning of the Small Quilt of the Month Challenge, I have wanted to join in.  Well it is all ready a third of the way done, and here is my little quilt for April.   Kathleen Tracy at A Sentimental Quilter is sponsoring this challenge for 2012, and you can get the pattern for this little quilt on her blog.  For May, she will be using one of the quilts from my favorite book, The Civil War Sewing Circle.

Last Saturday, I joined a wonderful QOV Quilting Bee.  We had a great day sewing on quilts.  This wonderful group of ladies have made so many quilts, and recently awarded quilts to returning soldiers at Fort Riley in Kansas.  Here are pictures of a few of the inspiring quilts that are being made.

Fabulous, aren't they?
