The Puzzle Fits Together

Here are pictures of the "puzzle" with 2 rows sewn together and with 4 rows sewn together--it's fun to see how the patterns emerge. This is called "State of Grace" and is the pattern that came with a jelly roll of Shangri-la fabric by 3 Sisters by Moda. It looks complicated and can be if you lose your place, so you have to keep close watch on what you are doing as you sew the pieces together! There are 80 blocks.

We had a wonderful week-end trip to Alabama to visit by brother and his lovely wife--so nice to spend time with them. We had a lot of fun shopping at all of Gadsden's thrift shops and one great fabric discount store where fabric was $2.99 a yard. We drove to a nearby State Park and watched the deer come up to the campgrounds where people were feeding them and had dinner at the Lodge---even got to watch a wedding that was taking place there--added bonus!!! We enjoyed time in their lovely home, too. It's good to spend time with relatives that you love and really like being with!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
