Spring Market Successful!

I know you have seen these quilts on other posts but I just wanted to say THANKS! My friends and wonderful customer "friends" were so supportive. I can't tell you how nice it was! Market couldn't have gone better. Life is good!

Remember today is the last day to post a comment to be in the drawing for a few fat quarters and there might even be a pattern or two!

There were a few times at Spring Market that I got a little "teary" because my mom would have been so proud! I know she was there in spirit. Today is one of those "missing you mom" days.

Hope you enjoy your quilting day. I am planning on enjoying mine!

The Magic of Leaders and Enders

While piecing a number of twelve inch blocks I took some time to prepare quarter squares of muslin many half square triangles to use as Leaders and Enders. Bonnie Hunter explains them quite nicely at

What can I say but "I piece a lot of blocks".
