    Today I got the most wonderful surprise from my friends here on the Board.

    I hosted 2 Round Robins and a few months into this my husband was diagnosed with cancer. So my friends got together and came up with something to give me a big warm hug. This was last year and sadly my husband died. However between them they made this adorable quilt made with lots of love and affection.

    There are 12 blocks but I have only 7 names can you help identify your blocks for me please.

    A huge thank you goes out to :

    All of you have said exactly what I thought when I opened that parcel, my heart was busting, I could just feel that warm feeling from them all.
