Nick's Quilt Update

All the blocks are finished on my Hazel Ridge Path quilt. I still need to add the border (which will have some piecing). The top is in three rows, because I'm going to quilt the rows, then put them together. I will also quilt the borders before attaching them to the quilt.

I'd like to encourage any Macy's shoppers in Michigan to help out Reading Is Fundamental. Are you interested in a great opportunity to save money this summer and help support children’s literacy? Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), the nation’s largest children and families’ literacy nonprofit, is partnering with Macy’s to Be Book Smart and help provide one million free books to underserved children. We invite you to join us. Together we can Be Book Smart! From June 22–July 31, 2012, give $3 at your local Macy’s and receive a $10 off a purchase of $50 or more. Give more and you'll save more! For example: Give $3, get $10 off a $50 purchase (a $7 savings!); give $9, get $30 off a $150 purchase (a $21 savings!). Some exclusions and restrictions apply, so check the coupon for details. Macy’s will donate 100% of every $3 to RIF. With your help, we can reach our goal of providing one million books to kids. Spread the word and help make RIF’s vision of a literate America a reality! This year our federal funding was cut 92%! So please help us out if you can.
