I chose this photo to symbolize the end of the Black Forest fire because the Fire Crew is from my home state of Idaho. That's a long way to come to help fight the fire, and all the residents of Black Forest, Colorado Springs, and Colorado appreciate you.
The fire burned 14,280 acres, it is 95 percent contained. Officials hope to have the fire 100 percent contained by 6 p.m. Thursday, June 20. So far, 509 homes have burned, 28 are damaged and 3,653 remain unaffected.
I've been asked by several blog followers if there will be a "quilts for victims" effort, and yes, there will be. Details will be published on this blog when they are available.
Now, let's turn our attention to some happier news. Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday!
I posted my first finish yesterday -- but it wasn't really finished! Can you find the mistake in this quilt? Thanks, Anne, for being the first person to point it out!
Even the DH found the mis-oriented orange chevrons! Just so you know I really did fix my mistake, here is a second photo of the corrected quilt:
I also finished piecing the August Jelly Roll Party sample. It's "Ring Toss," pattern by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew. The fabric is Sweetwater for Moda, "Reunion." background is Moda Bella Solids in Porcelain.
