And Yet Another...

... reason to cheer! It was time for "hip, hip, and hooray" last evening at The Strawberry Patch as B. (half of the famed B. Sisters team) completed her first quilt top. She will add a border to hers (as her sister is doing) and soon it will be quilting time. I was so excited to view her artistic layout, rather than placing her 9-Patch blocks randomly she chose to arrange them by color and value producing this stunning optical design. Well done, B.! Her sister's quilt top from the same pattern can be viewed here. They are both awesome!

These same sweet and generous ladies brought me with some wonderful gifts last evening, I can't wait to try them all out! There's a wonderful Prairie Point pressing tool, a cool Log Cabin/Courthouse Steps ruler by Creative Grids and the most precious book: Story Time by Kim Gaddy... all these were wrapped their Momma's fabric and tied with a length of her ribbon, she was a very special woman who is sorely missed and more dearly loved with each and every passing day. In fact, it's their mother and my friend, Natalie, who is our common thread. She has bound us together in this happy quilting adventure that we're all experiencing now on Thursday evenings, for that (and for her) I could not be more grateful; I'm certain that she knows and approves, and that she's smiling!
Life is Good!

I love both quilts and now I see how your husband helped arrange the blocks, SouthernCamper. He needs to design quilts! I love what you and Mrs. Goodneedle are doing and I know it is heavenly blessed!

She most definitely is and you can see it reflected in her daughters' faces.

So glad they found you to get them started. Bet they are not done on this journey either.

The whole story is wonderful. So are the quilts.
