Hope you are enjoying your summer. This summer we are spending two months in the town where my husband was born - Eureka, South Dakota. We have a lot next to the lake where we have installed the hookups for our 5th wheel. We have electricity, water and sewer. It is sooo easy to take care of the camper. Just an hour a week sees it cleaned. We keep cooking to a minimum - outside on the grill whenever possible. That means I have lots of time to sew. I just completed a 6-block quilt top in just 22 days. I'm lovin' it. I have just two blocks left to finish a second quilt. Then, before we head home I'll start a third quilt. I'm sure going to be sorry when our time at the lake is up. I'm looking forward to next year even before this year's vacation is over. Madeleine Leclerc's Pansies and Butterfly
Madeleine Leclerc of Quebec, Canada, sent me this photo of her "Pansies and Butterfly" block. This is the last block in "Linda's Flutters and Flowers". Your block is exquisite as usual, Madeleine. Thanks for sharing it with us.
This month and for each of the next three months I will have a floral block for you to download. These are misc. blocks that I have designed over the years and just haven't gotten around to putting into a quilt. Each block will finish 12" square. You will be able to use all four blocks together in a quilt if you wish. I haven't stitched these blocks. You can be my pattern tester for these blocks. If you have any problems, please let me know and I'll correct them. Also I would love to have a photo of the actual blocks made up. It is so much more fun to see the blocks in actual fabrics. Please send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
