Thank you Dawn and Judy

First I want to take just a second to thank all of you that read my blog and left comments...I felt so much better after reading your notes. You all are very special...this is certainly a wonderful group of friends.
A big thanks to Dawn.(I hope I did the link correctly...you all know how computer pitiful I am). A few posts ago on Dawn's blog, she posted a picture of a cute little block. I was enticed, so I e-mailed her and she told me where to find it...Traditional Mini Quilts by Moon Over Mountain Quilters. Well as luck would have it, I had the book, never used it but I had it. I decided I would take the challenge and try the block...I have NEVER done anything that tiny...there are some bitty pieces in the block...but I did it.
I am just so excited...I accomplished something that I really wasn't at all sure I could do...THANK YOU DAWN!
And thank you to Judy for the Hour A Day project. One of my customers came in on Saturday for our monthly Show and Tell with her almost finished top. She won't let me take a picture until she's finished. It is wonderful and lots of the gals just went nuts. She gave out the blog address so we may have some new gals in the Hour a Day Project. Thank you Judy for all you do to promote quilting to everyone. They are all thrilled because they are trying to use their stash. That's what Barb, the gal that had her top, started out to do, but she ended up buying sashing and borders from the shop...she had a specific color in mind for her redecorated room. She did use stash for the stars.
Isn't quilting wonderful...you just don't realize how small the world really is.

I was just looking at Dawn's block thinking about how it was put together. Then I see yours! Lovely.

Carol, your little blocks are marvelous! I knew you'd be able to do them if you tried. I wrote Dawn and asked her the very same question. I'm going to order the book next time I shop - I love those little blocks!

This is such a beautiful block. I can see why you wanted to hunt down the pattern. I love the bright colors you used.

Such a small block and such a cuttie. How many do you plan to make? Thank you for sharing.

Elaine Adair said...

I'm looking (again) at your little block with the red fabric. THat exact fabric was one of my very favorites! It worked up beautifully.

Dawn said...

Oh your block is wonderful! You did an excellent job!

Susan said...

I guess that answers the store question. =) That is a wonderful block, but way too small for me.

Again, so cute! What I like best is that red fabric on the little block. I used to have some of that - it was just wonderful.

You have a wonderful color sense. Love the blocks and that log cabin.
