It's Episode 24 - two dozen! Haven't heard it yet? Click here to download.
Above is the schematic Sue provided for me, and the final product - Maggie's going-down-the-stairs harness. Denim, fleece, plaid binding, webbing for the straps, plenty of Velcro, and a few D-rings -- all stuff I had on hand.
Above, a rail fence block. See how easy it is? Here's the link to the pattern, which uses 2 1/2-inch strips. Just watch carefully how you have the segments oriented before you stitch together.
Learn more about the Quilts for Carisbrook project here (Wilma's blog). U.S. volunteers can check out this list for mailing information - remember, all blocks must be 12 1/2 inches (unfinished) and they're due by Feb. 28.
Here's the "Comforts of Home" block. Pattern is here. I use the option with the Flying Geese turned the other way around, which forms a star.
Obviously, I hadn't yet woven in the ends of this sweater before I took the photo. I also hadn't blocked it yet - one arm looks bigger than the other here, but it turned out just fine after blocking. Learn more about Afghans for Afghans here.
Me ----> "Betty!! Get off that wool sweater this instant! But first, let me take your photo because you're so darn cute!"
