Our "Forget me Not" quilt for the Susan G Komen foundation is ready for the quilter!!! Well.... almost ready. I still have to transfer the scallops to the borders.... BUT!!!, the hard part's done! YAHOO!!!!! The back is just like a 2nd quilt top. All of the signature blocks are in sort of Ohio star blocks & the center block is the thank you to all of the contributors label. It turned out alot bigger than it seemed on paper! "Thank You!" to everyone who made blocks for the quilt.... every day I seem to have a different favorite!

We've had several inquiries about my block being a future pattern........ nope, sorry!!! I could come up with something similar to it one day, but that particular block (& the quilt) are for a donation & we won't be making any part of it into patterns. The quilt is a "one of a kind" !!! I'll let you know later how to go about purchasing a chance to win it (that will all be up to the Susan G Komen foundation ladies!). By the way!.... yes Perri, that is Red Brolly!!!! Isn't it a fun block??? We're so happy that we were able to include some Australian designers too!

This coming week is going to be spent writing the new patterns & drawing diagrams etc.... Not my favorite thing to do!!!! I'd much rather be drawing or stitching! I have lots of ideas for new things that I'd like to get down on paper........ but, first things first, right???

Have a beautiful Spring week!.......................... go on!..... go get some Easter candy!!

The scalloped border is going to be perfect. I clicked on the larger picture to look at the blocks and they are so neat.
