I'll be missing you

I finally got the time, nerve, whatever to start the BOM from CR. I finished blocks 1, 2, and 3 but messed up on the cutting of block 4 twice (sewed the fabric back together and then cut the wrong square into quarters.) Anyway, I think the blocks are beautiful now that I can look at the finished block and not just the fabrics. The little blankets are from the pattern Crazy Eights (Jan, this might be a cute pattern to use for your red fabrics=) No, I'm not coveting=) Someone gave me a bag of scraps for the dog beds and the pieces were too big (in my opinion) to toss so I cut them into the proper sized squares and made 5 little blankets (22 X 22) for Newborns in Need. Hope to see you in April=)

Cute pattern Donna and great blocks. We missed you at quilt group tonight. JoAn has agreed to do a quilting retreat at her cabin around the 22 or June. It will be a lot of fun I hope everyone can make it.

Wow Donna! Once those blocks are together they are outstanding. So strange that you just can't see it when you're looking at the fabrics separately. Can hardly wait to see the whole quilt put together.
