sneaky peek

My parents are here, visiting because of the new baby, and I wanted to show off my beautiful bookshelf blocks. I think I forgot one (it was in a different stack in my craft room), but it was the first time I'd laid them all out together since I'd received them and.... it took my breath away.
now I REALLY want to get this quilt stitched up! thanks to everyone for helping me to get these blocks made. I'm especially grateful for your stash scrap donations. I couldn't have made such a beautiful variety of prints without your help. Hmmm.... now if I could just find my free time.... I seem to have mislaid it.....

Yeah, that free time seems to go out the window when new babies arrive. The quilt looks great. It will be so fun to see what it looks like finished!

GORGEOUS! I have been wanting to make a nice smart quilt for our library (or book room) and voila! you have inspired me. Can't wait to see what kind of stippling you do on it.
