I haven’t been able to get any quilting done this past week as I have had out of town guests.  But I do have some beautiful quilts to show you.  Above, is a picture that Sue L. sent me.  Sue wrote in her email:
  • “A long time ago (but still 2015) I took the "One Block Wonder" class from Vickie S.   Well, I FINALLY finished the top.  It is ready to go to the quilter.  I thought I would send it to you and maybe the lady who taught the class will want to see it.  She might remember me - I cut her fingers two times with my rotary cutter!  UGH!”
Thanks Sue for sending.  Your quilt is beautiful.  And I’m sure Vickie will be glad to see it…and yes, I imagine Vickie will remember you.  LOL  She is such a fantastic teacher! And a good sport too!

Marjorie sent me a picture of additional blocks she is making.  She wrote:
  • "Here are five more blocks. I have been thinking about sashing; maybe just solid black.  The other thought is to use the same white with black in every block and then stitch them together.  Maybe I just have too many colors!!!!!  I have so much bright wacky fabrics from previous quilts that I thought I might get rid of some in a useful way.  Thanks again and I will just keep stitching!!!"
 On my previous post, I had a picture of her first block.  I love Marjorie’s bright colors and hope she does keep on stitching as I'm anxious to see how her quilt turns out.  I think we are running a race.  She now has more blocks completed than I do.  I better get busy!
