Okay onto the EXCITING part!! I received my blocks in the mail yesterday and they are beautiful! I'm going through a serious solids/tone on tone phase right now in my color choices and am so pleased that we chose to stick with a warm pallette and choose different hues of four colors - orange, yellow, pink, and coral. I sent Sarah my light yellow block last month, and she sent me TWO blocks - light and dark coral.
Sarah's blocks were also nice and starched . . . mine were NOT. We also included 25 things about ourselves that our partner may or may not know/wanted to know. I loved receiving this list in the mail instead of email. Here are some things about Sarah:
She was born and raised in Cape Cod. (Since I love watching storms roll in this is very cool to me!)
She wants not one, but two cats.
Her favorite color is purple and she likes stripes. (I love that this is the opposite of me - I gravitate to gray and polka dots. Is she a secret Kaffe Fassett fan??)
This quilt is going to be beautiful when it is done. The next block for me goes out on July 15th, so it's time to start cutting! Thanks Sarah - these are perfect!
