    Although I haven’t commented much….I am always awaiting and loving your blog entries. I sooooo love what you ladies do with color and design. In my neck of the woods (literally and figuratively), people are more timid to mix so many patterns, prints and colors in one block or quilt. I try to copy what you do and am told things are much too busy! Bah humbug! Your pieces and designs make my heart sing! Oh, please save me a place at your design table! Australia is sewwwwwwww on my bucket list!

    I have to agree with Carrolyn V, the work you gals do is amazing. The colors, the prints, and those “not for the faint of heart” patterns! Your blog is so inspiring, thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
