    Thank you so much, Zippy's mom!

  23. Joyce, This isn't a swap. You keep your blocks and we all work together to make our own quilts.

  24. I'm interested in you BOM2016. I missed Jan. How can I get this pattern? dawne

  26. Help!
    I'm trying to figure out the pattern for the April mittens!
    Is it correcy that most of the fabric pieces are cut in 16ths?
    Also, there isn't enough fabric cuts of the red fabric to make the majority of the mitten.
    I'm anxious to get these started, but will sit tight!
    Zippy's Mom
