Suzanne's tute is excellent and easy to follow. There are several ways to put the blocks together if you don't like pinwheels.

Even blogs about quilting, which ones are the best?

And she still brings me a quilt about every month. I wish I had her energy. We chose Hobbs 80/20 batting and a gold thread to quilt feathers, Terry Twist and piano keys, some stippling and SID on her beautiful top. What an inspiration

Keep your fingers crossed for me.
