  1. I liked your 'Sons of Thunder' post a lot and the birthday interviews you did...really neat! Other posts I was interested to read in 2011:

    This was an eye-opening post

    I love this quilt!

    This was a good reminder to store medicines safely!

  2. Great links! Did you know that type of quilt is called "wholecloth"? It's a style that originated in Wales. That's what I learned at the quilting museum in York! :)
