and ditto for me - i dearly love mine also and again a big thanks to colletta for doing all this, it was definitely quite a job. and if anybody is too picky to accept what they get, then they shouldn't have joined in the first place. just make your own and that way you'll be satisfied with all of them. the one thing that makes it special to me is all the different people from different places the blocks came from. even got one from The United Kingdom. i embroidered all their names & places on each block and it's beautiful.
