30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days in South Africa

It was about a year ago when I created

and my year has been so fun keeping up with the enthusiasm I've received by everyone making blocks and quilts.

My heart swells and eyes tear from the comments and visits to my blog.

I designed these blocks with the beginner in mind
 the blocks are perfect for quick piecing for anyone.

Each block makes so many designs when put together.


Or make all 30 blocks for a great sampler quilt.

Today I received such a wonderful email from a guild in 
South Africa
 and I wanted to share their pictures.

In January, Sue emailed to ask if I minded if she used
to share and teach to her guild,
Hayfields Quilting Guild in Pietermaritzburg SA.

Mind?  Of course not, but thank you, Sue, for asking!!!!

She explained her group of about 60 meets once a month to share, quilt, and chat.

Sue sent me this picture of her work in progress quilt top last April.

Today she shared more made by members of the guild:

Each quilt is a little different with color, but also with borders and sashing.
The quilting is so cool, too!

Thank you, Sue, for the email.
Feeling the love today!

The best part of the blog world is just how small the world becomes when we have a common bond. You did a great job on sharing your skills world wide.

They really took off with your great designs.

How neat is that?!! What an honor that your blocks were used! I like every one of those quilts. I'm glad you also shared the photos on your blog. It's awesome that the internet connects us from all around the world and can give people projects from our small towns and cities. Who knows who will we affect by our posts and ideas?

How fun is that?? Kudos to everyone's creativity!

That is such a great guild project and they have done so well with it. It's also such a thrill for you to see your blocks popping up so far away. It was a really fun project. I continue to refer back to the blocks for quick and impressive stitching.
