Week 28 at Quilt Market

St Louis Missouri was hot and muggy or rainy outside and cold and air conditiony inside. At times you had to go outside to warm up. 
This quilt, Second Chances by Rhonda Dort, is awesome. Speechless at the amount of handwork and intricate details in each 6" hexagon.

Week 28 - 
No these are not new blocks. They are blocks that you received last week in the double header. We are moving along rather grandly and hope you are as well. If you have competed them already, woo hoo, you have a week off.

Double Release - Blocks 79-81 and 82-84

Hope you all had a great Mother's Day! We spent ours on the back deck watching the birds at all the bird feeders and smelling the mayday flowers.

Weeks 27 and 28 are being released today, Monday, at the same time. So on Tuesday May 23 you will have a breather if you manage to complete all 6 this week. Finicky blocks are about half and half. Remember, the final seams can be pressed in different directions or pressed open so the block lays flat.

On the down hill Blocks 76-78

It's been a busy week. Computer problems. Geesh what a pain! Very happy it's May. The grass is almost all green, the trees have their tiny leaves, the rhubarb is 9" high and the baby magpies are serenading. 

This week's women. One began the Grey Nuns, one began the Canadian Army Medical Corps Nursing Service and one engineered peaceful discussions for the fur trade. I've come to believe that Canada great because of the ingenious women of yesteryear.
Go girl go!
