    Love the pinks and greens in All Buckled Up.

  65. Meredith says:

    What’s not to like? My son is a total gearhead, so he’d love something like the Shifting Gears quilt; my husband studied the Soviet Union for his master’s degree, and my daughter loves small, cute things, so the 13 Li’l Matryoshki would be great for them; and I love gardening and primitives, so Posy Path would be for me! Can you include some extra days along with the book so that I have time to make them all? ;)

  71. Sheila says:

    I love the matryoshka dolls! Too cute!

  72. Holly says:

    Flowers always grab my fancy so it was so hard to choose which pattern I liked the best; would it be Purple Passion, Mexican Sunflower, All Buckled Up? But the one that won the day for me was 13 Lil’ Matryoshki – I have a Large family and it would be such fun to do that up for my girls. They love little nesting dolls and would enjoy this delightful pattern as well! I saw the info on Bonnie Hunter’s site.

  73. Well I am way, way down here at the bottom I would use block #145 the little dolls because I just think they are so darn cute! I sure hope you find me way down here it says I am 1316. Wow

  74. Diane Alsleben says:

    I love the Posy Path. I can see it in an even more scrappy version. Would be just perfect for the back of the settee in my 3-season porch overlooking the flower garden. Thanks for a great pattern!
