This is Charlotte’s block – and I absolutely love the colors she’s chosen! turquoises and limes and my favorite – ORANGE!! And those fabulous black and whites that I can’t get enough of lately – all create a beautiful mosaic of FUN!
It’s so satisfying to watch quilter’s own personalities come through in the fabrics and colors they choose for their quilts.
I heard a lady say “I wanted to take this class, but I don’t like brown.”
AND?!? What’s to stop you from doing it any OTHER color under the rainbow?
To me a quilt pattern is like a recipe – how many of us make chocolate chip cookies ---many. But I bet you do yours slightly different than mine – maybe you add walnuts, or some add cinnamon or something else. Do it your way! Just use the pattern as the recipe to give you the guidelines for the design – but do it your way!
I just love how the triangles dance on this one….such a fun quilt! You can find it in my book String Fling, and you can order a signed copy from me directly HERE.
My time at Hershey was good to the last drop. In fact Missy came by to talk to me about coming back, and we checked my calendar to book it…..the soonest I have available is July 2018! But we are putting it on the calendar ---hard to believe that’s 5 years from now.
And, oh, yeah!!
If any of your pins have gone missing….I know where they’ve run away to!! This pin cushion may be the reason for the global pin shortage we seem to be experiencing! LOL!

I'm packing up the car and heading home this morning. A long drive home to Winston-Salem, NC -- Tomorrow I pack for Alaska, get caught up on the book orders that have come in while I've been in Pennsylvania, and Wednesdasy -- Alaska, Here I Come!
