  1. Linda Luggen says:

    I like the block with the 2 birds. Maybe the addition of a birdhouse would be good, but I would also like to see the “early bird” get a worm.

  2. Jane says:

    It’s amazing to see all this creativity. I am learning by the examples of getting to it and to trust your own muse to make it truly unique by the values of fabrics and colors you select. Jane

  3. Ali M says:

    I learned that fabric choices can make blocks I thought would only make it as traditional ones can work just as well as contemporary or modern ones!

  4. lindawwww says:

    I’ve learned that I love reading everyone’s blog. I get so many new ideas but may never get to try them because I spend too much time reading everyone’s blog.

  5. Clara says:

    I’ve learned that there are many creative individuals in the quilting “world”. My mind is spinning with all the possible quilts I’ve seen using some of the blocks from Volume 6. Thanks for hosting the blog hop!!

  6. Please count me in for the draw. I have learned I need to think “outside my comfort zone ” more often…

  7. Pat V. says:

    Today I discovered the wonderful paper piecing patterns of Charise Creates. Thank you!

  8. Susan C says:

    I’ve learned to change colors and settings to come up with different looks for the same block. So many of the designers on this blog hop have showed us their design process and many variations for their block. Great inspiration!

  9. I have learned not to be late, don’t put off until tomorrow what needs to be done today. I also learned that you can free motion applique and that is fun, i think it can do it. I also learned that you guys have some of the most creative designers – i love looking at the blogs, thanks scarlette shobbs@scarlette.com
