  1. Now how many of these 6" blocks were/are in the works? Aren't you almost half way there? I've enjoyed seeing them and all the different ways the simple 'quilt' pattern units can be used.

    1. I have 50 of them done - just not all posted yet. The "Master Plan" has 99 - 9-patches - so I'm about half way there - ;))

  2. I like it! In fact, it is slated to be the first block in my version of Farmer's Wive sampler though minus the background colored square in the middle. Mine will look more like one friendship star atop another. Other than that, JUST like it, LOL.

    Half done you said? Hurray for you!


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
