The four blue and navy blocks are from Kathy in British Colombia......the two 12 1/2" blocks with white backgrounds are from Denny in PA and the four 6 1/2" blocks with white backgrounds are from Crispy in ND. Then the two red and the two navy 6 1/2" blocks are from Heather in northern MN (and I think it gets cold here in southern MN - don't even like to think what it's like where she lives!!). The 6 1/2" block in the far left corner is from Jackie in nearby Arlington, MN and my block is the one 2nd from left in the top row. The blocks will not lay out like this. I was just laying them out to see how they might look. I know of about a dozen more blocks that will be headed my way so it will be interesting to see how it all lays out.
I've been a bit busy this week working on a Wooly Buddies project plus I did a little program for the local Women's Club group on Tuesday morn. They titled the program "Gifts galore to share" so I brought a basket overflowing with projects from miniatures to penny rugs and quilts and poems that I've written and tied it all together into a neat little program. It went well and was a good chance to know what I will bring to the next program I do which is for the Women's Club in my hometown of Lehigh, Iowa at the end of April. Then just a few days later, I'll be doing one in nearby St. Peter, MN for their quilt guild. I am so excited to share my projects and poems. Sometimes my projects make others smile and then that makes me smile to know that I have made them smile and well, it's contagious. :-) see :-) smiles and more smiles. :-) another one! Okay, getting a little silly. Might be time for me to go to bed.
Part of why I am so late is that I started reading a little book that I was going to read at Christmas time and never got to. It's called The Christmas Wish by Richard Siddoway. It was so good. I started reading it and couldn't put it down so curled up in my sewing chair, relaxed and read til I finished it!!
Time to turn out the lights!!
A little edit.... Blocks you see in this photo arrived in the mail today from Deanna in MN, Kathy in British Columbia, Holly in Florida and Linda in Georgia. When the quilt is finished, I will post exactly who made which blocks with a diagram for all who participated.
