  1. Great.....I say a great quilt collection you've found to inspire me! Thank you and all those wonderful quilt makers who so generously gave us permission.

  2. What a great variety of quilts these shapes can make! Thanks for sharing all these stunners.

    I've had a cross quilt on my (long) mental to-do list for a while. Eventually...

  3. I wonder why those + and X blocks are called "Japanese". I am still putting those 240+ blocks together but have never seen a finished quilt in that design.

  4. Thank you so much for all of these different quilt patterns. You are AWESOME!!!
