Bestie Block #2 Done

Whew... #2 Swoon block is done on my Bestie QAL.  Have I mentioned before that each block is a whopping 24" big?  You can see our photos at our Flickr site.  It is not too late to join!  You don't have to do the same pattern as us, just work away at a QAL with us!

A while ago I participated in a 'Quilting Arts' challenge and totally forgot that it was also a swap.   Look what came in the mail today for me.


Isn't it beautiful?  The writing is all about artists. How clever was she to embrace the 'art' part of 'heart' in yarn?  I felt a lot better about not getting published after I saw this one, as this is a real winner and it didn't get picked either.  Different tastes and different ideas.   Well, they did an excellent job sending the perfect one to me.  I love it!

I really love your Swoon block! You are doing a terrific job on those points! And your postcard is really neat. I agree, very clever to embrace the "art" with the heart!

I wish we could so together in the same room. That would make this even better.
