Just teasing

Not too long ago, a guild member told me she was considering opening her very own quilt shop. I told her that if she did, I would design a pattern for her to commemorate the opening. Well, that shop will be a reality in just a couple of weeks and I did design a pattern that the shop owner will be giving away on opening day. It is really just a block, but by adding a few borders, it could be turned it into a nice little wall hanging, a cushion, a table topper, multiple blocks repeated would create an interesting quilt.......well you get the idea.
I made mine into a small wall hanging that I will show soon, but for now, here is just a tease.


I have noticed recently, that the word verification process has become very frustrating for those wanting to leave comments, so it has now been removed.

I removed my word identification too...it is awful.

well this looks beautiful so far, look at all those tiny stitches.
Maybe you'll have to do something for every anniversary too.
What a terrific way to start her new business.

Happy Sewing

What an interesting tease - can't wait for the big reveal - and what a lovely, generous thing to do for your friend
I've been thinking about removing the verification system too

What a lovely idea to make the pattern for your friends Grand Opening. Can't wait to see the entire piece.

Now I'm wondering if I have that new and not improved word verification. I better go check as I know it is very frustrating.

Your block looks wonderful!! The shop will be thrilled as will the customers!! And I agree with double words for posting! Who knew...I thought folks did this on their own! I just checked and mine is the same! UGH!

Ohhh, I would love to see the whole quilt. I got rid of the word verification too. Way too long otherwise to expect people to comment.
Congratulations on your friend's endeavour.
