BOM - April

I received a sweet thank you note from across the pond yesterday. Seems the giveaway prize made its way intact to the U.K.

I'm looking forward to hearing from Ms. Daisy in Manchester about how she gets along with her diamonds.

The latest block of the month for guild is a scrappy star. I really, really like this block. Of course, you would never know that I had been into my scraps at all.

I won block of the month back in the fall and got 49 lovely fall pinwheel blocks that I have yet to do anything with.

Can I be a little greedy and wish for these? They are a generous 18" finished. Six blocks, some sashing and a border and you have yourself a great baby gift or cuddle quilt. You could use some I Spy squares in there. I imagine that even if I don't win a set of them, I'll be making more of this block.

Our next guild meeting is Monday. Can't believe it has come around so quickly. We are having a yard sale. I had hoped to gather some things to join a couple of friends at their table. But looks like I ran out of time, so I will likely be bringing more stuff home instead.

Your giveaway did indeed make it intact and was beautifully packaged. Have made a sart on your Aunt Donna Fall quilt. Hoping for the same standard as yours - think that will take a lot of effort on my part.

I was out lurking among blogs and found yours--love that scrappy star!
