    QASG Quilt

    Decided to make a QAYG quilt from blocks I won on two different occasions from our guild. The flower blocks were won in 2005 (isn't that sad?). All the blocks had a name on it except Block #8 and then all of a sudden I saw a name by the flower and the year - it was my BF who passed away 5 1/2 years ago. What a happy/sad day! I was using backing fabric that her girls had given me. So I decided to give this quilt to Helen's granddaughter Adeline who unfortunately never got to meet nana. There are two pillows made because the blocks were on point.

    The quilt looks great. Don't you just block swaps? Hope the quilt is a blessing to you.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Nice job of arranging. The blocks look like they were made for that quilt.
