My online quilting group is having a retreat in Lake Tahoe in August. I sure wish I could be there but since I can't take more time off from work one of the ways I can participate is by making "tahoe blocks and quilts made from these blocks. Today, I was able to make 2 quilt tops using blocks I had already made.

I am trying to make a difference in the Native American children's lives as they have so very little. One way I do that is to participate in drives organized by a non profit group. These drives focus on the basics and are sent to the schools for the children. The web site I am a member of is listed below: http://www.friendsof pineridgereservation. org/ . I had participated in the past but have just started participating again. There is a drive coming up for new pillowcases, pillows and PJ's for the children. I have chosen to make 2 dozen pillowcases from my fabric stash.
|6 more pillowcases|
The bottom 4 pillowcases I have duplicates of with different colored bands so they can be more individualized.

For my online dyeing group I am participating in a 9 patch block swap using out hand dyed fabrics. Here are my blocks for the next 6 weeks. The blocks can vary a little from what I send out as sometimes I don't have enough fabric to make the same blocks for everyone.
