I was thrilled to hear from Marjorie, a reader from Utah.  Here is what she wrote:

"Hi Caroll,
I hope your summer is cool and you have finished lots of projects.
I have been busy getting projects finished.  I finished the challenge for the state fair.... It was using yellow.  I don't do much yellow so it was a long process.
The attached photo is my 11" quilt for the quilt guild challenge.  I used Nadine Ruggles book Inchies for inspiration.  Each little piece is one inch square!
It was a lot of fun.  I hope to make more and make pins out of them and give them as gifts for friends."

Marjorie, Thank you so much for sending this picture.  I can't believe your quilt is made with one inch squares.  I don't know how you work with such small pieces.  Your quilt is stunning.  I love seeing what other quilters do and thank you again for sharing with us!
