The last of the Tribute to Danny quilt blocks

The final block contributions for the Tribute to Danny quilts are coming in and I want to share the beauties with you.

This one came from Terrie (no blog) in . I love what she did. One minute it seems to me that the red is jumping into the spotlight, the next it seems the black is pushing to be front and center.

Next up is this pair sent by Micchonne in Nevada. Wonky stars are so cool! Love them.

Thursday's mail delivery brought this great block made by Sunny in Maryland.  I do love it so and really appreciate her taking the time out of her busy life to whip this one up for me.

Blogging buddy Melinda from Georgia sent this star block and it finally arrived Friday. Just lovely.

And last but definitely not least Deborah in California contributed this one. Love all the dots.

All told I received 33 blocks from fellow quilters far and wide and Thank You will never be sufficient to express how grateful I am to everyone for your help with this project.

Now I have to get my rear in gear and get them laid out and stitched together so that I can get them off to my long arm quilter friend. The event is the end of the month. today I'll be finishing up work on the minis and as soon as they are on their way to the next person, this one will be next up.

I can't wait to show you the finished quilts.

P.S. The envelopes arrived the week before, not last week. With me being on vacation last week, I didn't get to finish this post before I left.

4 of you added your own colorful comments:
