  16. Hi I'm here from "Notes of Sincerity's" blog. and all I can say is WOW!!! Your quilts are absolutely awe-inspiring!! I can't believe you did that many "major" projects in one year with all the hand quilting!! I have a really big quilt that was my 1st quilt along quilt that I keep going back and forth on whether I should hand quilt or machine or do some of both. It's rather large and I get discouraged b/c I think the hand quilting will take forever. Especially since I've never really don't it other than a mini-quilt. Seeing your quilts makes me want to hand quilt it. They are gorgeous!!

  17. This is one big candy shop ; ) you have made so many beautiful quilts this year! Fantastic!
    Wish you a creative and busy 2011!

  18. Your quilts are absolutely stunning and your hand quilting blows me away. I have never tried it but you definitely inspire me!
