Magnolia’s Guest Day Sewing

Life …

After Paul ate his delicious potato soup from Calvary Baptist Church’s fundraiser, he got up from the table, washed his container, filled it with milk, added chocolate Quik, and heated it in the microwave. Then he added a bunch … a whole bunch of marshmallows and heated it a little more, brought it to the table and enjoyed his 2nd bowl of ‘soup!’

  1. Julia I know where I'd be at your sewing circle. With my machine piecing the string quilt blocks. You all made great progress. I like how you split the block instead of running a piece down the center.

  8. The string blocks really caught my eye- I love them! Perfect for a group where you might want to talk and not concentrate entirely on the blocks, but still get a great result.
