Mary Brown Thanksgiving Update...........



Slowly, slowly, I am filling in the blanks. Boy, are there a lot of leaves/flowers on this one block! Somehow, or other, in spite of the fact that I've been moving back and forth from side to side, The bottom corner stays empty. I have a plan for almost every empty space, but that bottom is still a mystery. Meanwhile, Dorothy has moved on to her first setting triangle. Bravo! I'm already worrying about mine. It's lovely to be able to see others interpreting the same wonderful old quilt. It gives me a sense of quilting community.



I am now going to wish you all a marvelous Thanksgiving, with all the yummy foods that your family look forward to all year. For those of you in countries that don't have this holiday I have a proposition..........I'll eat enough Thanksgiving goodies for you, if you will eat enough goodies for me when next you have a feast, and celebration. Will that work do you think? Now, if we could find a third party to gain the weight! Sigh.

  7. Wonderful work. The colors, the folky style, the roses -- all of it reminds me of the 18th century.
