  7. I totally LOVE the quilt! yikes, so happy and bright. Such cutie trees.
    I like the Santa block too. That would be so fun to make a long wall hanging with Santa and improvise some elves, wouldn't it? LOL

    I am really enjoying these blog hoppies. Being a new quilter I am learning so much, my brains runneth over =D
    Happy Monday

  8. I think it should be a law or rule that during a blog hop I don't have to work. Since I sign-up for all of your blog hops, this would mean I wouldn't have to work at all. Sounds good to me! Oh, my goodness, love, love the top two (and the Honorable Mention is very nice--thank you!) Such hard choices because they were all looking mighty fine. :O)

  12. Yes this first day was fabulous. I couldn't ever expect anything other than wonders on these hops. And 6 more days to go. But I'm on one of those days, perhaps the last one with you, and I'd better get my behind in gear and get ready. I'm sure I won't make as many as you but it will be fun either way.
