Sewing on a Nascar weekend

I am following the Nascar race.
 And I have my trusty water bottle at my side.
It says "Put Your Foot Down and QUILT!"
How appropriate!


This is a bonus quilt made from leftovers of the Wind It Up! fabric.
This was from the quilt made for Great Grandson #2.
 More Project Linus quilts made this weekend.
This one has the pink 9-patches in the lead.
 This one has the blue 9-patch in the lead.
These finish at 36" X 45"...perfect size for Project Linus.
 I changed my "anti scale cartridge" in my Reliable Digital Velocity iron. It was very easy to do. But I do not know if I needed to do it. It is behaving oddly. The burst of steam feature that is triggered by movement is not working. I have to push the steam button off and then back on to get the steam happening.
Any ideas what is going on? This iron was great at the beginning. And a few friends have bought these on my personal recommendation. Ouch! If I was wrong.
My blue 2 1/2" strips for the Quiltvilleswap group on yahoo!

We have Nascar on in the background and SIL is lucky enough to be there since last Thursday. He and his Dad have a time share just for that week.

I debated joining the swap, but had not used any of the last two I participated in, so sat this one out.

I have a Shark iron which is doing the same thing - have to hit the button to get steam - and I have not a clue what the problem is. Wish I did.

Wasn't it a great finish at Daytona, it will go down in Nascar history. I had to move my sewing into the living room to watch.

I like the song your husband wrote, I hope he gets it published.

How do you find the swaps you belong too?

Wow Subee, you blow me away--you finished that so quickly and it's just beautiful.
