A Riddle

What is black and white and red all over?

My latest quilt project!

At my quilt group's retreat last year we were all given black, red and white 5" squares. We were to make a lap size quilt and we are donating them to cancer patients. As per usual, I've waited to till the last minute to get it done. If I have just the top finished before retreat in February, I'll be happy. I can't wait to see what everyone is doing. I'm sure they'll all be different. I know one of my friends is doing a Bow Tie pattern and I'm doing Chinese Coins. I'll show pictures of everyone's project after retreat.

The retreat sounds like so much fun. How many ladies attend the retreat? Do you bring your own sewing machines? Please come show yours to me before you leave. Happy sewing....sandi
