First Block Done

I didn't get much done today but I did get the first block done of the 2009 Designer BOM done. Oh I'm going to LOVE this quilt...the fabric is gorgeous and is a dream to work with.

We went to the hospital today and visited our friend and delivered the quilt...she loved it. She looks great, she has a long, long way to go, but is determined to get there. Her biggest hurdle is to get her speech back. Please keep her in your thoughts.

I posted some new books on Brown Quilts and More...there are some really good ones...

Mines here too and I also got the finishing kit and back, now I just need to make a little time for myself and put it together, maybe next weekend.

I love anything by 3 Sisters!

You have been really busy lately! And I am sure that the UPS man/lady thanks you for it.

Glad that you friend loved the quilt. The label was really inspiring!

Have a good Monday!

It is a great block...and I love the UPS story from your last post too!!! I didn't get the finishing kit, but after seeing the pattern I might have to rethink!

Karen said...

You are using different fabrics of late!

Thimbleanna said...

What a pretty block Carol! And I love Andy's message on the quilt label. You two are wonderful friends!

Beth said...

What a pretty block for sure! I have sworn off BOMs because I can't keep up with them, so I will watch others! What a great idea to have a separate blog for selling things. I think I might have to do that so I can unload a few things when we move. I'm sure your lovely quilt will boost your friend's spirits tremendously!

OOOHHHHH - very, very pretty! You are such a temptress! LOL

The block is so pretty, I didn't sign up this year, now I wish I had... Even with all the other projects I have on hand...

Teresa said...

That is a beautiful block all on its own rights. Can't wait to see more!

Cathy said...

Oh, the first block is just beautiful! I love the colors and the fabric is so soft isn't it? I am sure that you have made someone feel so special and loved!
I can tell from reading your blog that you are a very special person.
Hugs, Cathy

The first block was great and the instructions perfect. I need to post a photo of mine. I am debating whether to start the finishing kit or not...

I see why you love that fabric! It is gorgeous and so is your block!
I am quite certain your friend loved your quilt. So thoughtful.
