I can remember when my kids were in kindergarten they had to bring in 100 of something. When I got that note home, I thought, "wow, that's a lot to make him carry." Of course when you count out 100 cheerios, it doesn't even fill a whole plastic sandwich baggy. I also wonder why we love those zeros so much? What is it about being even that makes it special? Maybe someone could write their thesis on this fact.Well, since I totally skipped over my 100th post, I'm celebrating 200. I'm giving away this little quilt to one lucky commenter. The quilt was inspired by a very large one made by Amanda Jean. I think the proper name for the block is the bow tie but I could be wrong (and often am). So if you want to get your hands on this little colorful quilt, tell me something, anything! I made this quilt from left over triangles from my pinwheel quilt. I still have quite a few triangles left. I'm not sure why I cut out so darned many in the first place. Amanda Jean inspired quite a few people to make quilts in this pattern. I've been seeing them all over blog land. My favorite is in this post by Jacquie of Tallgrass Prairie Studio. I love the fabrics Jacquie uses in her quilts. I'm a nut for color.
In other news, I sold my modified Happy Hour quilt which has been on display at Cafe On Main. Finding out that someone likes something I made always boosts my spirit. Especially when I didn't even much like the something I made.
Finally, I want to give a big thanks to everyone who reads this little blog. Some of you are friends from here in Lancaster and some of you are from afar. I've loved seeing the amazing women that are out there in the world that I would never have had a chance to meet if it weren't for the Internet. You all bring Joy to my life. Thanks.
