Thanks everybody for your comments on my posts...
Wendy, it was great seeing you again at Hampton, I've tucked my ribbon safely away for next year. Penny, it was great meeting your for the first time - we'll be looking to see your stuff! 5440 members, the quilt you had in the dining room was gorgeous, I wish I could have oggled it closer! Maybe I'll see it on your web site.
Sue, see what I did to ya? hee-hee. Now you'll have to keep us updated on those quilting projects and the antics of your twins! Cuz we'll be checking!
Vrooman, I like your pocketed calendar for receipts, but you reminded me of my taxes, yeeech! I also have a quilt block-a-day calendar at the office I'd forgotten about that I've had at least 10 years(?) and I've used several blocks off there. There's a rocking horse pattern that I adapted a very long time ago, for my great-niece (in California) when she was a few months old - she must be 10 by now. Here it is, pieced into 16-inch blocks:
You'll notice a different one in the slide show on the right:
I made this one about two years ago for my guild's community quilt project. Can you see a little "growth" there? I can! Different source too - I googled "rocking horses" and found one that I made an applique pattern from.
Well, that's all for now, have a perfectly quilty day everybody!
Sew forth and sew on til later...
