A really good friend surprised me with a quilty gift. She made it from wood pieces assembled just like a log cabin block. The colors were created from paint. I was completely in love with it, and the thoughtfulness behind it. I love the colors, too, and find them inspirational for a real fabric quilt. I need to talk her into quilting.
In my fabric world, I have pieced the star blocks I need for the pumpkin jubilee quilt from My Carolina home. I shared recently that the hsts units had been sewn three times.
