    Was too nervous to work on Steven's quilt the last two weekends. I'll be working on his with help this weekend to finish quilting the borders and then it's binding binding binding. He arrived back in USA safely from Iraq this weekend. He'll be here on leave in 3 weeks. We are so happy his deployment is over, until the next one.

    Here is what I worked on the last 2 weekends. Repeating Gramma's Sampler for a girl at work. I absolutely hate the fabrics, but I got as close as I could to the original colors. No blooming pansies this time, blooming tulips.



    1. Grandmother's Fan

    Very nice job on the quilt blocks even tho they're not your favorite colors. They'll look great in your sampler quilt. Glad your son is coming home--thank you, Steven for all you've done and bless you!!

    I hope to get some pictures from son Steven's quilt posted here. It's a patriotic stairway to heaven with army fabric on the back. I think it turned out really wonderful. I'll post pics of it as soon as I can.

    When Steven comes home in 3 weeks, I'll show him the thread for his quilt. I don't think he realizes that there are still people out there who appreciate military folk.

    So glad he'll be home soon--I know how relieved you must be! Your sampler is gorgeous! I think it's good for us to work on things that aren't necessarily "our" colors--helps you to see things in a whole new way sometimes!

    Wonderful work there. I'm sure you are quite relieved to have your son home. I can only imagine how hard it is to see them go.

    Ooh, you made a Patience Corner block! I was going to do one for my sampler quilt, but then I read that it's hard, that it takes a lot of patience. Was it hard for you? If so, what is hard about it?


    (See, butterflywing, I do know the name of some quilt blocks!)

    We just can't thank our military enough.

    Tell Steven thanks and give him a big hugs for me.
    I am so glad his deployment is over.

    P.S.---your blocks are very nice, too!

    Patience Corners was so easy, I couldn't figure out why they named it that!! All of the patterns came straight from www.quilterscache.com. Here is the link for this one:

    http://www.quilterscache.com/P/Patie...nersBlock.html

    I think it looks a ton like a disappearing 9 patch, it's just made a different way. And, you only have to match ONE seam! Did the whole thing with only one pin. It was by far the easiest block of the 9.
