More Tribute to Danny blocks

3 more blocks arrived in the mail yesterday. Oh how I am loving opening that box lately.

First up there are 2 all the way from England. Both are fantastic. Diane made this one.

And Celine sent this beauty.

And this stunner was sent by Kathy in Washington. On her note she wrote that she thought this wouldn't work with the other blocks that I have received so far. Silly Kathy! I love this block. It literally took my breath away and there so no way I'd leave it out.

Part of the fun of this project is seeing everyone's different version of these stars. In some ways it reminds me of sampler quilts that I have seen hanging in quilt shops. I never cared for the ones that were all sorts of different colors but I did like the ones that had a common colorway involved.

Thank you ladies for your wonderful contributions to this project.

Gotta run for now. On my "To Do" list for today:

1) Finish washing and putting away a ton of laundry. Poor Jammer is out of clean school uniform shirts. Note to self: buy more next year.
2) Erase the gray roots from my hair that I can't stand and make me look closer to my real age.
3) Finish the slight modifications to the Lead Teacher Quilt top and get it delivered to my long arm quilter before the day is out.
4) Sunshine's speech therapy session.

Yes there are a lot more really important things on my list but these are the "must dos" for today. My poor house needs some serious cleaning attention but since the end of the school year in mid June is fast approaching and the teacher quilts have to be done by then, I'm doing the bare minimum cleaning until all 3 tops are complete and off to be quilted.

Whatever your day brings for you, I hope it is a good one.

6 of you added your own colorful comments:

  1. Glad you're getting a haul of stars! Ooh, I need to take care of some roots myself. It cracks me up when people ask why my hair is reddisha nd my kids are dark blonde/brown. Um, it's what happens when I buy 'warm' hair color in the box!
