Very pretty set, Michelle. The narrow sage edge on each block really makes
an impact. The leaves as border seal the theme and frame the top.

Thank you Pat!  I must admit my mom and I borrowed the narrow frame
around each block idea from Louise in Iowa.  (I'm using it on my quilt
top from the same swap.)  In a previous swap Louise had used a novelty
neon fish fabric for the swap, and she framed each block in black.  The
effect was stunning.

Thanks again!

Such a beautiful job!!  I am honored to be part of that quilt.  (My
square is the butterfly, second from the left on the top row.)
My squares are waiting, patiently, for me to use them.  I hope Terbear
gets a chance to see your picture.  She would love it, too.

Hi Connie,

So good to "see" you!  :-)  Yes, I remember that you were in that swap.
   That is a beautiful block!  I'm going to have to get out my top (I'm
in the process of working on it) and see if I can remember which block
is yours.  On down the line, I may have to ask you.  I kick myself for
not labeling them.  Heck, I was just like a kid in a candy store every
time I got a new block in the mailbox, and just didn't keep track.

I hope Terbear makes an appearance too.  :-)

Best regards,
Michelle in Nevada

Hi Terri!

So nice to "see" you.  :-)  And I agree, my mom did do a wonderful job.
    We've spray basted the quilt, so now she's down to getting the
thread in order to get started.

Best regards,
Michelle in Nevada
