Hi everyone! I hope all are doing well, staying safe and enjoying the summer heat! (if you're a fan of the heat)
It's not the same as hearing the stories and getting to see them in person, but I am so grateful for those of you sending in pictures to share on the blog.
Melanie Tubinis is getting us started this month.

free motion quilting I did on it. |

I hope to see more pictures soon. As long as I'm hoping, I hope to see you all very soon!!
Ann Renica sent in this picture, and a story...
I was in Florida when the pandemic hit and joined a group in Tampa/St Pete to sew face masks for hospitals and nursing homes. I continued sewing masks when I returned to Rochester hooking up with the Rochester City School District when my daughter Lynn, a district teacher, told me there was a need with their food and tech employees. I sewed a total of 1300 masks when I took a sabbatical to make a quilt for my granddaughter Allie’s graduation from high school. It was finished just in time for her party. It’s a scrappy scattered squares.
