This message just came to me from Carol:

Barb Paliatsos (Needleware) asked if the Strippers could be included. I said that would be wonderful. This is a book that tells a story of sharing and making friends. The Strippers are welcome to send their stories and quilts too.

If you missed the article in the Newsletter and/or the Daily Blog, Carol Moellers ( [url]community/my-profile/CMOELLERS[/url] )
is going to put together a memory book and DVD about our SoTTT and B-R-U exchanges.


Because Carol works full time and isn't able to check the forum frequently, please post any of your questions about the project here. I will monitor the forum and answer the questions that I can as quickly as possible. If there is something that I'm not sure about, I'll get in touch with Carol and post an answer as soon as I can. Please check the forum to see if your question has already been addressed.

This will save her having to answer the same questions individually to lot of different people. THANKS!

I really hope that this project will encourage everyone to make their HST projects a priority in order to get them done by the deadlines!


It's time to record the story of the recent, exciting TQS Half-Square Triangle/Strip Exchange for posterity! We've been asked by a very ambitious member, CMOELLERS (Carol), to put out a call to all exchange participants.

In recognition of the many, many beautiful quilts being created with the exchange triangles, Carol would like to create a book and DVD to document the process. Anyone who would like to share their own HST Exchange project is welcome to be included.

Your project can be submitted by email or snail mail.
