Very nice look.
Darns answered:
Thank you!
DeGramma asked:
Love your red & white, wouldn't that make a cute Christmas theme, looks like a pepperment candy! ;)
Darns answered:
My photography is not great as the block is brown & blue but it would look good for a peppermint block in red & white
Pamillia asked:
Your blocks are Beautiful. The fabrics & colors that you have chosen are wonderful. Very nice job. Thank you for sharing.
Darns answered:
Thanks, Pamillia, this quilt is for a friend of 45+ years. She also does occasional quilting & no one has made her a quilt.
