National Quilting Day

The blocks above are for my Jo Club. We are exchanging 6.5" unfinished blocks. The center stars are just 3". In between stitching on these I've been running outside enjoying the sunshine and warmth. It is gorgeous today!

My National Quilting Day was complete with presents! This arrived for me today from my friend Kim at Magnolia Bay Quilts. She knows how to spoil me. Thank you Kim!!
PS...check out the giveaways on my side bar!

You described some blocks from "Jo's Club" but I don't get a picture. I have had that happen on other blogs too where I know there's a picture but it didn't show up for me. Anyway, I'm sure I'd love them. You always have good eye candy on your blog - thanks.
