Getting Ready

We've had a busy summer.  Trips, first time jobs, swim lessons, driver's ed, scout camp, and boating have made it fly by.  Signs that school will be starting soon have begun to appear.  We got a letter from DD teacher letting us know what school supplies to buy.  N's schedule arrived for high school.  And Alex and Josh are all registared for college.  In twelve days summer ends and school begins.  And while I'm sad that our summer is coming to an end.  I'm looking forward to not living in my car taking kids here and there.  In prep for this change DD, N and I went shopping for clothes and supplies.  Then today while DD went boating with friends and N was at driver's ed I made another back pack for DD.
If you would like to know how to make your own.  Check out my tut on Sew We Quilt.  I promise it's a 'cinch'

  14. Love the Scrappy Postage Stamp Star pattern - great stash buster. However the flying geese borders are much larger than the center block. Is this intentional and they must be trimmed to fit?
