    You are soooo prolific. I see my block. Your placement is well thought out mixing the light background blocks with the dark. You must have a dozen helpers you seem to get so much done.

    Sweet quilt, now you're ready for winter.

    It's a great quilt; I can see why you love it so much. Thanks for close ups of some of the blocks.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Thank you for sharing a photo of your block swap quilt. You did an amazing job with your block arrangement. I love the red binding and the plaid backing you chose. I enjoyed seeing the varied block designs. I think my fav block is the snow globe one.
