Erin, Glenna and Karen L. Your Violets are on their way!!!

Sorry again but I am the one that lives in Mexico and if you’ve received blocks from me you know how slow our mail service is……SO this month my wonderful and dear friend from Florida came down to visit me for a week and she just left on Tuesday. Well you will think “Oh how very interesting but what does this have to do with me?” Well it has everything to do with having your blocks sent via the U.S. Postal Services AND your blocks will arrive faster for being sent from the Fabulously Efficient mail services that...

Spring Violets!

Posted by on April 25, 2016 in sent and received | 0 comments

I left England just as the daffodils were giving way to bluebells, and came home to California to find packages of violet blocks strewn all over my dining table. (My mother: “You’re receiving all kinds of packages. Should I be worried?”  Me: “No, not really.”) I refrained from opening the envelopes until all the other mail had been dealt with, but finally I got to them, and have been petting all the pretty fabric combinations for the last half-hour. Thank you very much to Cathy, Deana, Elizabeth, Glenna, Karen...

Sneak Peek for May

Sneak Peek for May

If you have made and posted blocks this month, you should have email from me with the sneak peek at the May block. Be sure to let me know ASAP if you should have received it, but didn’t … or vice-versa. It’s also a good time to double check that the information I have for you and your blocks is correct on the At-a-Glance page....

Out of time

Too late for the sneak peak and without inspiration for a title, I post without fanfare these 5 butterflies for donation: And below is my block for the Rainbow Sampler. I was delighted to see the secondary pattern formed when these are set solid. Notice that they have to be tail to tail (or head to head) in order for the sky parts to form into even triangles as the head sky is larger than the tail...
