17 years ago --yes 17! I started a Santa Quilt and now will be working on the remaining blocks. I'll post progress.
I'll be posting on my blog
i promise to speed the next blocks up a bit.
Well it is finished!! my cottage is ready to work in! Only a couple of places where I should paint, but not to worry, I have moved in, washer, dryer, heater, dyes, paints, buckets, both 25 one gal. ones and 4, 5 gal. table and 2 chairs, a small CD player so I can have music. My dye books, and my tools. All moved in! The only thing I can't move in is my PFD fabric, I have 6 bolts of 60" wide, 25 yd bolts, will cut Pieces in my studio and take out as needed.
I could spend days out there,

I have looked everywhere, on and off line, to find this book, even used. No luck!! If ANY ONE has it, or specifically the patterns for the Eagle and the Phoenix, I will happily buy them from you. I have a "Platinum Edition" of Quilts Without Corners, by the same designer (Cheryl Phillips) but it does not have either of those patterns in it. Check your book shelves, please. Many thanks, Ruth
