    Helen, funny you asked, I sold a ton of fabric last year on eBay. Best way to sell on eBay is by “lot” measure everything and assemble each lot as a project, you’ll get rid of all of it! Glad I did, I had fabric from 15 years ago.
    It’s gone and I feel great about moving the fabric along.

                Thank you Barbara. Couldn't have done it without you. I am using hand embroidery to embellish all blocks, Hand work was my challenge to myself this year. Really enjoying it

                    Bonjour
                    I finally finished month 9 ! Actually I finished all previous blocks:). It took me 6 months just to do the center block and borders . I thought I would never be able to complete the quilt this year, but last July , Barbara said that after the first 3 block things would get easier. It did ! I took a 3 weeks holiday and did all the appliqué blocks. I really enjoyed doing them. Now I’m ready to start month 10 .
                    Thank you so much for your help Barbara , without you , this quilt would have been out of my reach. Thank you all for posting your photos. I find it very difficult to choose the colors. Your photos gave lots of inspiration :)
