Amazing prints in these blocks! How funky is that car print in the borders? A wonderful selection
of scraps that feature in the blocks too.
Thank you Kathleen!

Her signature blues shine in these gorgeous blocks. Joanne also sent a block in soft greens, a box of delicious chocolates and a really nice card.
Thank you Joanne!

Thank you so much for these lovely parcels and the kind words offered. I'm looking forward to making these blocks into a quilt - once the others arrive of course!

Not much sewing happening here as we begin a pre-Spring Spring Clean. I have sewn some more basket blocks and started on a quillow for my nephew - pictures soon.

Happy Stitching...Ann
