There is only one small tear on the cover at the top left – you can barely see it in this picture. As usual, I start leafing from the back, and was surprised to see someone had left a Polaroid picture of a quilt they had made based on one of the blocks. This is what one spread of the book looks like:
The book is chock full like this - incredible blocks! I love this book just from the first few pages I have looked at! Then I finally turned to the front of the book, turned the cover, and what do I see –
Signed? For only $6.46 plus shipping? I couldn’t believe it! But wait – there’s more! I turned to the title page-
Again? Really? Unbelievable! Now, I’m sure there are probably hundreds of signed copies of this book out there, but I can’t believe I got one - I usually do not have THAT good of luck. There is next to zero chance that I would ever meet her to get a book signed.
So my day was made right there! I will sit in bed tonight looking at all the beautiful blocks I would like to make! To heck with that “Visions of sugar plums” stuff – I am going to have visions of beautiful quilt blocks tonight!
And I should not forget to mention, the last little block of geese is finished-
Poor little guys seem very insignificant after the book! Now it’s time to put it all together. I will do it in quarters and get started tomorrow.
Hope you had as good a day as I did!
