A Big Thank You to Donna!

Our first year of the Friday Block Party has come to an end. And we all know that we couldn't have done it without Donna the Quilt Pixie! Thank you QP for starting this Block Party! You picked out a block each week and posted it for us. What fun it was to carefully put each block together. I know that I for one, looked forward to each Friday to see what the new block was going to be. We all joined for different reasons, but mostly to tame our stashes and hone our skills. And this Party certainly helped in doing just that. We got better and better at piecing and making HST. Oh, those HSTs! They seemed so impossible at first and now they are no more difficult than a basic square. Seeing everyone's completed block added to our enjoyment. We were influenced by different colour combinations. Small diversions from the original blocks inspired us to take risks and even make our own variations of a block. It's been a blast! So thank you Donna! We all appreciate the work you did to make this Party such a complete success. Please come and join us in the new year if life doesn't get in the way. As our founding member, you are always welcome!

thank you one and all for your participation... it made the project worth doing. I don't expect I'll be back in 2010, but who knows maybe the odd block here and there :-)
