Wanna See Something Pretty!

Over on the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum we have tons of fun!!  Nickilee hosts a CQ One Block Swap each year and I have participated now for 3 years in a row!  This time Kathy Shaw got my name and I received a box from Alabama today with the finished block in it!!

We were able to talk to the person creating our block once and I told Kathy that I would like a fall block and that I would love for her to put a Saint bernard on it somewhere for my husband.  he had a Saint that lived almost 13 years and he loved her so much!  he still cries for her every once in a while even now 16 years later!  I knew he would love the sentiment and he did!

It is GORGEOUS!!!

This is truly a work of art, it's just beautiful! I have to try something like this (on a much simpler level) for myself! And, yep, I did see the pig:@)

Beautiful. Best I've ever seen. I just hope this gets turned into a quilt that gets entered in a show. Award winning quilt possibilities.

Kathy is a very talented stitcher and she did a great job with your block. The St Bernard is really great.
