More little windows

I’m happy to report that my Little Window blocks have finally made the long journey from Mariella’s home in Mexico to mine in Cape Br-eton Nova Scotia.  I love the fussy cuts you used and the extra fabric piece is perfect for a top I’m working on at the moment. Thanks again. My international collection is almost complete. The only blocks that haven’t arrived yet are from Karen in South Africa, and that certainly is a...

Another package just arrived from Cyndi in CA. Almost all have arrived except those coming from South Africa and Mexico. Guess the international packages take a bit longer. Once they arrive, the design process starts. Can`t wait....

Blocks in my mailbox

More little window blocks are arriving in my mailbox. Yesterday brought a surprise from Gail in Las Vegas. Loving the fussy cuts in the windows.  Today saw packages from Margaret in Australia and her flapper prints were really nice; a flowered block from Helen in Nashville and blocks from Karen in Florida. I really am loving the ants in the cherry tree prints and the block with the blue sky background. A lady working at the church luncheon...

More windows arrived

Happy to say that 2 more packages of little windows have arrived from my quilting partners in the US.  Thanks to Laurie and Mary Jane. The blocks are lovely. Wondering if 9 patch settings with each group featuring a different solid color might work. Perhaps a red, blue, green etc.  Any thoughts on...
