I am working on my block for :  Merry & Bright Quilt Block  by Pat Sloan

Are you playing along with me. I  am using Christmas material that I already had to make my blocks for this challenge.  These blocks finish to a 9 inch block  and 17 total blocks to make this quilt. 

Not wanting to do all 17 blocks  *    You could make two  and turn them into a pillow or  4  for a table runner  with some extra fabric . Have fun with this challenge.

A New Kiki Lowenstein Novella (extra-extra-long short story that’s actually a short book).

Trying to patch up a damaged relationship, Kiki agrees to go on a road trip with her old best friend Mert. The destination promises to be a lot of fun, a Watermelon Festival in Vincennes, Indiana. More importantly, Kiki hopes to mend fences by taking a peek into Mert’s past. The story that follows is ripped from today’s headlines as Kiki gets a firsthand lesson in the burden put on our society by opioid addiction. And it wouldn’t be a Kiki story without a crime, would it? Yup. There’s a crime.
