    Amazing works in progress. Just can’t get enough of the King George blocks and Sue 1’s applique. You girls have a stash to envy, wonderful choices in fabric. I get a bit giddy when I spy pieces that are in my stash.

    The bird applique is wonderful, love the background fabric and the new stitch. Is this the pattern that a few of you are doing as a BOM? Waiting for that pattern to become available.

    Too much fun! Can’t wait to see the next post.The examples are so inspiring they make me want to start digging out my scraps and start a new project, again…LOL. One day maybe you could photo the ladies with their projects. I feel like I’m getting to know some by their work. Do any of you get to come to Houston for the Houston International Quilt Festival?? Some of these works should be shown there. They are marvelous. Blessings,Pat Mosley
