The second picture is just the small quilt that I worked on this am when I couldn't sleep... I 'tied' the quilt.

I have clothespins that are about 1 inch size. Bought them originally for Am Girl Doll stuff. Found them in a old Murphy store, but I think I saw them also in a Dollar Tree. Look in the craft sections. They are so cute.

Mary, that is so very thoughtful! I found those very same clothespins at Walmart this noon. And I need to finish this quilt for our guild quilt show next week. Thanks

I bought mine at the dollar tree. They get some pretty good items that can be used for crafts. Good luck with your quilt show. I think the pins will just finish your block off so nicely.

I appreciate the work and time that is going into creating this quilt first by the person that is designing it. And second by those that are sticking with it, attempting each block and adding their personal touch. Its a lot of work. And its the game, the doing something together, the social aspect that really counts first and we have lovely people here that are doing amazing work.

Plus the fact you can't please everyone all the time but it doesn't stop us from trying, lol. Great job all!!
Like the comment and glad I am not the only one that has enjoyed making all of the blocks. I so appreciate the fact that someone is willing to share a pattern they have designed and it is free. I have been a bit behind in getting the blocks finished but am working on them.

Not quite finished cow and sheep--want to do some embellishments on them both. My cow needs eyes, a chain necklace and a #1. We lived on a dairy farm when we first got married and milked cows. My job was to take care of the calves and I kept the 1st one to start my herd. I still have her chain and number. NO, we no longer milk cows!

Sjens, more great blocks. I look forward to seeing your finished blocks. Your embellishments and quilting really do add so much personality to the blocks.
