Are We Still Friends?


Thank you to all my followers who hung in there with me.  I've missed everybody!!  I see some followers did bale on me, as is the case when one takes a little vay-cay from blogging…..uuhm, seems I should call it
something else besides a blogging vacation for as long as I've been absent!

Well….since we're STILL FRIENDS and all…..I'll share what I've been working on.

TA DA!!!

Block size will finish at 15''.  This is the first block I finished back in March.
If you're looking closely you'll see I still have to soak out my markings and glue basting.  I just
swoon over this block whenever I look at it.

Keeping with our FRIENDS theme…..afterall, you DID say we were STILL FRIENDS, well, this fabulous eagle block belongs with 15 other equally amazing blocks along with 4 stunning borders.


I think Sue Garman outdid herself on this design.  I looked…..studied…..admired and studied some more on this pattern for 2 years.  I wanted to do it and I wanted to DO IT!!  I drug my feet ordering it because I knew it was going to be a l-o-n-g term project….yes, l-o-n-g l-o-n-g term!  I knew I could probable master the skills to do it, but to make the commitment to know and determine I would
actually finish it took me the 2 years studying it to finally order it.
I'm soooo glad I did…..the blocks I have done are just beautiful in person. 
Yes, I have finished the SECOND block and I'm prepping
and preparing the THIRD.

So….that's what I've been up to…..and if your keep being my FRIEND 
I'll share the other blocks I'm working on with you later.

P.S.  I also finished my Flags of the American Revolution (previous post) quilt top from the Sew-Along LORI from HUMBLE QUILTS organized last year.  It's great lookin' in person too!
