This is the second block of the Aunt Millie’s Garden. Probably if I had ironed it before I took the picture, it would look much better. I like the colors though.
Be sure and check Sunday’s Grand Rapids Press for Jennifer Ackerman’s column. She will be talking about Martha’s Hope chest. She also has some exciting events in store for quilters. She was on Take Five today so I imagine she will blog about it too. Here’s a link to her blog.
If you are considering making a block for Terry's quilt, you might want to go to Connecting Threads as they have two full pages of free 9 inch block patterns that you could use.
Nicole Mallalieu Design has scads of tips for successful bag making, things like where and when to use interfacing, using plastic, etc. She also has a nice tutorial for making a child’s backpack or library bag.

Hope you have a great weekend,

That looks pretty good even without ironing! I'm so impressed by the Aunt Millie's blocks and quilts; it's a wonderful pattern, and the quilts turn out so differently with different fabric. It looks way out of my league though!

Thank you for the nice comment on my blog! I too am fond of a good mystery!
