I recently received all my blocks from the Around The World Quilting Bee (AWQB). These blocks are fantastic. Each one is individual and unique to its creator. Aren’t they beautiful! I can’t decide how to put them together, what sashing to use, etc. I need time to put some thought into it. However, I was so excited about getting them that I had to show them to you. This quilt has been to the United Kingdom (several times), Indiana, Texas, Washington ( a couple of times), New Hampshire, California (more than once) , Tennessee (a couple times), Australia, The Netherlands, Illinois, Florida, Virginia, Michigan (east side of the state), Massachusetts, and I believe Brazil. I have a block with no name on it and I thought Brazil was in the mix.
Anyway, I want to thank all of you who participated. You have made beautiful blocks for me and I will think of all my wonderful AWQ Bee friends every time I look at it. It will cover me with warmth and love for all my new friends. Thanks again!
And a very special thank you to Summer Sadie for putting this group together and keeping us all on track. Great job!
Chris, owner of the Attic Window Quilt Shop, has been at Market this past week. I can't wait to see what she brings back. I'll post about it as soon as I can.

Loft Creations has a new idea for using up those scraps. She calls them Silly Strings. Really pretty.

Until next time,

your blocks turned out beautiful!! I'm totally impressed by the work off all these ladies, the organization, and the patience during those holidays that almost stop the whole thing from being done. Lovely indeed!
