    I bet your mother's friendship blocks are beautiful. I love finding those treasures. A few days ago I found a block that my grandmother had done. In the center she had signed her name and embroidered it. Think I will make a pillow from it.

    Here is the link to Rhonda's block that I chose for you. Decided against curves. They still scare me!

    Those are great pieces! Wish I could get pictures posted!!
    I looked at some cameras today at Costco..One of them was nearly 3 thousand dollars. Yikes. There was some for less than $200. but..I just bought food items..I can use the photo booth on the laptop but the pictures are not very good.

    I sent you a block that was HST's and Boston blocks.
    I have been trying to make the wing blocks..sure have a challenge with getting them to match seams, but finally have one that is ok. Ronda's look so nice! I made HST's by an old method of marking lines of sq's and sewing 1/4" on each side of diagonal lines. cutting on the diagonal and sq lines. the bias edges stay more straight when I sew them the old way. When I make wing blocks I am still challenged to get them all the same size and making corners match and the points all look the same. made some little tiny ones and some bigger ones..now I have more blocks and even more scraps. I joined the Doll Quilt Swap and the table mat and runner swap to use up some of the sample blocks and left over blocks.
    I decided to buy a Accuquilt cutter..Hope it will help get pieces cut more accurate and make them quicker to make.

    Well it's snowing like crazy. Blowing side ways. What happened to spring? We had 9" of the sticky heavy stuff last week end and today it started at 2pm and hasn't slowed down one bit since. Good reason to stay in and quilt I guess.
    I sent sgardner her block . Here it is...Name:  DSCN1616.JPG

    Grandma Di, the block is just lovely. You did such a nice job with the seams and everything- it's perfect in every way! Thank you.
