My yahoo group SmallQuiltTalk just finished a Maple Leaf block exchange. I had signed up to participate but then got sick and felt terrible when I had to drop out. Imagine my surprise when everyone in the exchange made extra blocks and sent them to me! You know how much I love Fall and all of its colors.
Now I have my very own blocks to make my own special Maple Leaf quilt. Some were signed with the makers' names on the back, in the seams. Someone in the group suggested putting the names of the block makers on the back of the quilt and I think that's a great idea so I will never forget. The group is going to do a Signature Swap with some small blocks in January. We'll have to see if I can join in this time.
Aren't they beautiful? I hear there are more on the way and I can't wait. Thank you all so much for thinking of me!
This wonderful magazine with lots and lots of great scrappy quilts and Kathie's Tumbler quilt on the cover also arrived in the mail last week. There was a little card inside with a note that was signed "Your friend" but no signature. Hey! This is driving me crazy!
I guess the sender wishes to remain anonynous but I sure would like to know who it was so I can thank her properly! C'mon, Anonymous, 'fess up . . .
If you like scrappy quilts, you all "need" this magazine -
