The work shown here is absolutely gorgeous. I am working on my very first quilt. It will hand sewn and a simple patchwork quilt. Boy, have you given me some inspiration in quilting and so much more! I love it and that is an understatement.

I love Crazy Quilts. I have looked at DVDs and books on how to make them. I even have purchased fabrics but I have not yet started one. These truly are a work of art. Thanks for your inspiration.

YAY!! I am so glad to see our blocks all in one place! I really enjoyed being part of this group of talented stitchers! I gave my block as a Christmas gift to a very dear friend... that was the idea all along. She cried over her block and took it the very next day and had it framed!

Thank you to Nicki, Darlene, Ellen and Carolyn for making the block such a beautiful gift!

Thank you for all the work you do for the blog!
