Dear Valerie and Jenny,

I tried so hard to get the same material as you for the block of the month but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Somewhat discouraged I tried to find something similar but failed miserably. Half-heartedly I decided to try a completely different colour combination. However, by the time it came you were already onto block four and I was worried that I would be too late to join in (being a new member and unsure just how things worked). Anyway, once I got started I just couldn’t stop and I thought you might like to see how it turned out. I’m really pleased with it. This is my first medallion quilt, my first Dresden plate (love it) and likely to be my first flying geese border.

Please keep up the good work – I think it is an excellent way of teaching.

Thanks very much.
