At long last, my Southern Album is a full-fledged flimsy, and has a proper name. The seemingly never ending project formerly known as GBY* has been officially christened "Sunday Best" and is a tangible object lesson in perseverance. It's been a journey, one that began in January 2008. The name was natural combination: Southern Album classes taught on Sunday afternoons and my best efforts at precision piecing and appliqué. There are special blocks to commemorate milestones celebrated and observed along the way.

Hannes makes an appearance in this block too!
2010 saw the arrival of two more grandchildren, Lucy Ann and Gregory,
and the addition of two more celebratory red leaves.
And, of course, strawberries! Just for me,
because strawberries are always a reason for celebrating and giving thanks.
I would also like to express sincere and deep gratitude to my friend,
and ever-encouraging teacher, Kathleen; thanks for never giving up on me!
Now, onto Sunday Best quilting.
Sundance... start your engine!
Life is Good!
