I just finished embellishing this crazy quiltblock I made for Sharon Boggons class during the Adventure in Crazy Quilting. I did not use it that day and decided to finish it for a fabric book I am making to remember my travels around the world. The star buttons I bought at Michaels in Orlando. I love the way it turned out.
Yesterday we celebrated my husbands birthday with family in Krefeld, Germany. Over there we visited the "flachsmarkt" around the castle. We try to go there every year, it is a market with hundreds of craftsmen showing and selling their work and of course lots of nice food and biergarten. I love to collect things for my garden, I love stuff like this.
I was doubting whether I should buy this little kingfisher, decided not to do it (maybe I would find something even better later.....) and now regret it!

Your USA block is wonderful. Just like the 4th of July in one little package!

Hi Wilma, I love your USA block. It turned out so beautifully. I look forward to seeing more of you work commemorating your travels! Oh my, what a cute yard ornament that glass kingfisher bird is! I think I would have bought one! Sounds like a fun day. Hugs, Cathy

Great block. You really missed it not buying the kingfisher!! I have passed so many good things by and wished later I'd bought them.

Hi Wilma!

Just read that you celebrated your husbands birthday in Krefeld.
How funny! I was born in Krefeld and grown up there before I emigrated to Austria as an age of 19.

Lots of wishes from Austria
