    I love what you did to put them together in a quilt! I know two ladies who were on the forum and came to our first forum retreat who were working on blocks. That is quite an undertaking, doing any of those quilt with tiny pieces for blocks! I applaud anyone who attempts it! The 365 day quilt is similar! Our friend Klasien did finish hers and brought it to my house to quilt it! Hers was just lovely! Good to see you again!

    I'd like to come and visit and cuddle under that in that sunny space! Beautiful quilt.

    I am one of those women that Jean mentioned. I proudly showed off a box of tiny blocks, promptly brought them home, and stashed them on a shelf. I was energetically making two of each block, one in original 30’s fabrics and feedsack scraps and one in more modern fabrics. Yes, I was not making one but two different quilt tops!! I guess this is the nudge I need to open that box and figure out which blocks I have yet to piece. I really enjoyed making them, but lost my mojo. Time to see if I can get it done!!!

    Yes that was absolutely beautiful, Klasiens quilt. I've seen it! I knew the two of you met, and that you quilted that for her on your long arm. So much fun for Klasien, to meet you and quilt together!

    SuzyQue, I remember you, making two different versions of the Farmer's Wife! I sure hope you open the box, and find back your mojo. That would make two beautiful quilts!
