Quilt above by Mari Linfesty using the Flower Power book....and look what she is using for her borders below! This is what Mary Lou's chatroom swaps are all about! Well done Mari! So I often talk to my students about what all they can create using the Hoochy/flower power books. And I give patterns out sometimes for fun. Well, in my chatroom, I gave out a bee pattern and 12 girls signed up to make 12 bees and to swap them. Then the idea was to make a one of a kind quilt with the bees. Mari Linfesty my friend who I often brag about took her 12 bees from chatroom friends and bordered the quilt above. I think it is wonderful! We just completed sign up's for fall Owls from a pattern I gave out. In a couple of months or so, I will have a winter pattern to hand out. If you are interested in our fun and most creative chatroom, You may join us by going to Yahoogroups.com and typing in Marylouweidman or MaryLouandYou. And give Mari a big hand for being quick and creative and fun!
