Thank You, and Better than Cheesecake!

First, Thank You, to Morah/Marla of Fat Quarters for ... oh, she knows for what!


Next, Thank You to Wanda of Exhuberant Color for an added boost to get me started on this kind of a quilt. I've been drooling over Margaret Miller's strip designs for many years, had her book for 8, and one day I noticed Wanda's name on one of the most gorgeous quilts in her book - the quilt I'd been slobbering over for YEARS! Who woulda guessed that the maker of that quilt, Wanda, was right here on my Bloglines?


Putting these colors/values together IS better than cheesecake! And Wanda was right - the hardest part is digging through the pile of strips, all wormed together!

Let's all be kind to each other, speak gently and generously, and keep each other strong. You never know when your words will carry someone through a hard day.
