100 Dutch Treat Blocks



These little puppies are 4" finished. I'm going to take a break until after Christmas, and then start the last 96.

I've got a new camera that I can barely operate. A new printer, too, although that one was fairly easy to install. (I walked into a sale at Office Max!) This is when I miss having a computer person in the house -- naw! Forget I said that! LOL

Gratitudes:

* Frozen pizza
* Spending only $50 at Target tonight - a first!
* Daisy sitting up and begging for half an hour. :)
* Finally cooler weather!

Vicky those are gorgeous. What an incredible job you're doing there!! I am in absolute awe. I tried a few and found the reverse process so frustrating on the tiny sections, that I finally gave up. You are going to have a wonderful quilt when you are finished. Hugs from the East Coast.

What an incredible start! I remember when this book came out. I looked and looked at it for several weeks, and finally decided no. These must have been a lot of fun to make. Are they needleturned? (You may have told us already but if so I've forgotten - my mind loses things so fast anymore!)
