I GET BY.........

with a little help from my friends  : )

The blocks from my 'Mid Century Modern' partners have started to arrive. It's so fun getting these blocks in the mail. I asked them for brights with text prints for backgrounds if they had them, because I want to make my own version of this quilt.   Here's what arrived so far-

 from Susan


and Mary


and Carla


from Debbie


and Linda


Here they all are playing nicely together along with some blocks I have made.


I love it so far!  I still have seven more blocks to come.


Can't wait.
Enjoy your day and as always, thanks for stopping by.
