  1. So many pretty things here, Maureen. I'm impressed with your quilting! Someday I'll get out of my rut and try fun things like that too.

    On the Retro Flowers block it looks like you may have stretched the fabrics while piecing... Which would be sad =(. But, maybe it can be improved with some starch? Do you have Best Press or some other starch that you can try to fix it up with? I only started using starch with curves, and it does help to prevent stretching too. This is a challenging block! There's no question about that.

  2. Everything looks wonderful! You always accomplish so much, it's crazy!

  3. Your birthday crowns are awesome! I found them on pinterest just now.
