    Thank you! Have just made it to the almost retired generation, and wanted to get back into the swing of quilting each day. I’ve always said it’s best to sew a few pieces together rather than going to pieces. Your ideas are an inspiration.

  5. Sue says:

    there are some really great blocks here, hope tomorrows are just as good. I love the way creative people love to share with each other

  6. ferne says:

    100 Blocks is right up my alley. I have been making my own version of a Dear Jane quilt with blocks I find interesting.

    Great idea to give the blocks away!

    I visited all the different websites. There were some new ones I’d never been to before. Great idea! This books looks fantastic.

  23. I visited all the Top Designers listed for today. Some of them didn’t have any reference to this magazine nor a place for me to leave a note to be included in their drawings.

  24. Donna Dehn says:

    Great blocks. I look forward to seeing them all each day.

  25. How fun! A drawing. I am interested.

  26. Oh my! The ideas. How fun this is going to be.
