    I have to tell you. The power of this board never ceases to amaze!

    A few weeks back I posted a picture of a quilt using the pattern, "Thinking Outside the Block" by Toadusew. You all just blew me away with your response. In fact so many of you visited Toadusew and bought the pattern that Chloe, of Toadusew, wanted to know why they were having a run on that particular pattern. She tracked us down! Wow! I'm impressed with her tracking skills. Anyway, to continue on.

    Chloe asked if she could post a picture of my quilt on her blog. I agreed. She is a very nice lady. She then emailed me a chart of the pattern to use to plan my quilting. That was a very handy sheet and she assures me they have planning sheets for many of their patterns.

    The story continues. I asked Chloe if she'd like a picture of the final quilt. She said yes. She then asked if I would write a short summary of how I quilted the quilt. I agreed and today, I am Toadusew's first 'guest blogger.' How about that? And it's all because of you. Thank you!

    Here's where my comments are posted.

    Just so you know - This is a first for me also. I'm not a blogger or any of the other fun things you can be on the internet! I'm a retired school teacher now a quilter! That's it! And now I'm famous! :lol:

    I have another Thank-you! So many have posted photos of their Bow Tucks Totes that I decided to join the fun. It is fun, isn't it? I'm busy making six to give to my daughters when we meet for our youngest daughter's wedding in June. Here are my first three.

    Have a great rest of the day.
    Yvonne

    Here's the final photo. All quilted and after it's first bath.

    I think that to see the quilt actually made makes you want to get the pattern because you can see how well the quilt will turn out. At least that's why I bought that pattern! Thanks for sharing with us!

    Beautiful work....and now a whole new world is opening up for you, very exciting. See, retiring is just another word for "re-birth", new beginnings, new worlds, the possibilities are endless.
