It's time for a change from illness. I've been to the Dr again and now have more heavy duty antibiotic medication to try and as I'm sick of being sick, it's time foir a change of focus. I am joining in with this blog and will endeavour to catch up as the BOM stitch along started on Oct 1st. I bought the pattern online and downloaded it. I have enlarged mine to 141% of the original so my blocks will be 12 inches square.
Come along and join us. You know you want to.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Oh, another blogger is making this popular quilt! You're right I would love to join in but too many other things on the go - I'll just have to enjoy watching you and others make this one. Sorry to hear you are not well, take care and get better soon.

I would love to join also, but determined to use all my stash in scrap quilts before I buy a new lot to start something as beautiful as that quilt. Do the 2 boxes in Amsterdam that I bought count, no I don't think so.
