By request - a photo of 24 Gratitude blocks from my Moda tower. I am pleased with the richness of the colors! I used all the prints except for about 4 of very large birds - because I want to save the birds. And 1 cream print which I used for the cornerstones for my Grandmother's Choice top. And - I still have enough fabric to keep making blocks - lots more blocks. Except 1 tiny little thing - my iron broke yesterday. Nothing like a dead iron to stop a quilter in her tracks! Not sure how my finished top will look as I won't follow the pattern exactly...
You can see Little Boy's foot in the next photo - he is asking - "are there any pins, Momma?" He wasn't on the Shakespeare quilt because I had many of the edge pieces pinned and he knows that bare feet and pins just aren't a good combination! He always asks about pins first!!!
Thanks for all the compliments on Shakespeare - I have all those border triangles pieces sewn together now, but can't go any further until the iron situation is resolved!
