Hoping for some good Karma!

This past March I was lucky enough to go to the first ever Sew South Retreat where I got to hang out with my buddy Dana of Old Red Barn Co.  Dana gave me a load of lovely presents but this one really touched my heart....
 Eighteen almost finished 12" hand pieced antique quilt blocks.  Almost because they still needed their corners.  I think she bought them at a flea market or yard sale.  Dana also gave me some turquoise and green fabric for a perfect finish!
Corners sewn....added two squares of Lark.....
 ...Voila!!  Don't you love it?!!!:) It is just awesome!
 The ladies at the shop think these may be 1940s fabrics.
 What do you think?  They are fabulous!  Some of the blocks are a bit faded but who cares?!:)
 This just makes me sooooo happy!
 But mostly I hope some good karma has happened and someone somewhere ;) is happy because the blocks are finally all together!  Thanks so much Dana!! xoxoxox
 Keeping with feel good quilting is this stack of red, white and blue which became....
 ...this patriotic cuddle!  Our shop was trying to collect 100 quilts that will be given to returning soldiers next month.  I wanted to be one of the 100.  I ended up being is one of over 135+ quilts for our troops!!!!  
A big heartfelt virtual hug to all you wonderful quilters from Virginia, Maryland, DC and across the USA (we received many by mail) bearing warmth from your loving hands.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!!


  1. Love the vintage quilt, and great idea on the one for the troops too!
