  53. I love this quilt, but I think if I can keep my strength up I would love to make this for hubby before I take that walk with the Lord, I have never used the thread so I don't know the difference except when I read about it, I love applique of any kind but have a fondness' for things of nature and flowers are at the top. I am in hospice care but I have a lot of quilts to make. Thank you for all you do, I want to join you so bad but I don't even have 13.00 in my account, social security checks go fast. GOD bless.

  63. If I get your news letter then how do I get the bonus block? When I click on it I just get a bigger picture.

    ReplyDelete
  64. In the newsletter there is a big blue button to click which takes you directly to the bonus block. It is only good, however, for the month of January.

    1. I just get an abbreviated link to your home page and there is no blue button, just text. I did re sign up for the newsletter in Jan and still this month just get a short paragraph. When I click on the title it brings me to your home page. Do I need to sign up to something else?

    ReplyDelete
  94. I seriously love this quilt. SO pretty. And different - a nice change. I'm just getting ready to get started (better late than never!) and I'm wondering if you ever finalized the fabric requirements. The list you initially posted seems a little scrambled?

    ReplyDelete
  95. The link for the Sampler bonus block #10 seems to be missing?

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm also having trouble retrieving it -- no link in the newsletter. I even signed up again, thinking maybe the link would show up, but it's not there. Sorry to be a bother, Reeze - maybe the grandkids distracted you?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Anche io non riesco a scaricare il bonus block 10 non c'è il collegamento. Silvana

  98. Anche io non riesco a scaricare il bonus block 10 non c'è il collegamento. Silvana

  99. I can't see the bonus block either. And I also re-subscribed to the newsletter, just in case. No luck. I can't quite bring myself to complain when something free is missing... but I do wish I could get it! LOL

I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for sharing your ideas.
