More blocks from my surprise package...





And hopefully today Blogger won't feel I need the extra html at the side...LOL. I am enjoying looking and admiring each of your blocks sooo much...just wanted you to know*VBS*
First picture we have from left: Jen at Hedgehog,Anne at Quiltoholic, Patti at Quilting is my Passion, and Rose at Threadbare. Since there were 21 blocks, I had to choose one to stand alone at the end...I picked this block on purpose *VBS* It's from Yvonne at Quilting Down the Stairs. By putting it alone, I could put it on point and come in close on the stamped detail...really a charming block Yvonne..*S*

And the last picture??? Well, I just couldn't resist. Ebby hasn't appeared just lately, LOL, but having her jump into my vintage laundry basket, and curl up on the fabric when her Mile A Minute quilt is right behind the basket seemed to good not to share. In my house, there are quilts everywhere, as you might imagine. Stacked on chairs, on the couch back, in piles on the floor, in the bathroom, and definitely in the laundry room, bedroom? of course, maybe the only place you couldn't sit or lay on one is in the kitchen...LOL. And Ebby claims ALL of them, plus any fabric or even a plastic bag that might be on the floor with fabric in it. If I leave the stash door open, she goes inside the closet and sleeps on the fabric. Like most of your cats, she has become a first class quilter's cat in short order!

Finn, those blocks are amazing and you deserve all of the friendship and joy in quilting they represent. Congrats on your blog-a-versary! What a great surprise!

What a marvelous collection of blocks! I can hardly wait to see what you are going to do with them. We all wish we could have had a picture of your face when you received the blocks in the mail. We had so much fun doing this!

Can you share the URL for Yvonne's blog? I'm not familiar at all with Quilting Down the Stairs.
