I don’t exactly have bright paper packages tied up with string, but I do have small bits of mail crisscrossing the world! The Quilt Postcard Swap Partner emails are being mailed today! Pretty soon many people will have new miniature works of art in their homes. I cannot wait to see what everyone creates.

I DO have some Pinwheel and Stripes for you! That would be Block 6 of First Notes for the Quilt Concert Series!

First Notes and the Quilt Concert Series is ABSOLUTELY one of my Favorite Things. I love seeing everyone’s interpretation of the blocks and truly enjoy our PJ Jam Parties on Friday nights.

Pinwheels and Squares is now available at The Not So Dramatic Life Etsy Shop.

Do you need to catch up with previous week blocks? The cutting directions and all even numbered blocks can be found at The Not So Dramatic Life Etsy Shop and all odd number blocks can be found at Shoppe Lovingly Lissa Etsy Shop.
