Of travel I've had my share, man. These blocks have been everywhere.

Finally I have the blocks for Margaret's Hope Chest in an envelope ready to go in the mail tomorrow. I intended to have them mailed off before the end of June but clearly that didn't happen. I took them with me on my world tour trip to New Orleans, LA then off to Hattiesburg, MS back to New Orleans, LA and on a plane to Richmond, VA. While I was in Richmond my mom and I made some red blocks. I hadn't planned on making more blocks and bought quarter yards of fabric so some of these blocks are 9" square instead of 9.5" square. I packed the blocks with me to Cleveland, OH and finally back to Milwaukee, WI. Tonight I am in Columbus, OH and as God is my witness the blocks will be mailed tomorrow. Here are some pics of the final product (20 pink/10 teal/10 blue/13 red). Blocks come together so quickly! I love them!


  1. these are beautiful. They will make some really nice quilts and bring smiles to the recipients for sure. Very inspiring.

  2. Very nice work. I am currently making some too. Glad to see what fabrics others are using. Thanks!!
