I love blog reader mail. Most of the time, I always end up with a smile. This email was no exception. It came from Dee Y.
“I enjoy your blog. Never a day that I don’t read it.
I attach a picture of the quilt I made my granddaughter. Your “Lucy” quilt was my inspiration. I am also going to attempt the quilt along. Picture of the background fabric attached. I am taking your advice and try 9 to see how it goes before making more.”
Check out Dee’s quilt for her grand daughter….LOVE IT!! I had so much fun making Lucy’s. I like the “Ella” letters…colors are fabulous too!

Here’s Dee’s background fabric for the double wedding ring. That looks fun too.
I hope others of you are considering the quilt along and only doing 9 blocks to see it this quilt is for you. I’ve gotten comments from others that they can’t believe it isn’t harder. It so true. It’s not hard…time consuming YES. Lots of pinning YES! If you’ve ever sewn clothing sewing a double wedding ring is not hard at all.
I so appreciate notes from readers. A couple weeks ago Sherry W sent me a note telling what her family is up to. I love those notes. From this side of the computer, it’s hard for me to feel connected to all of you. Notes like Dee’s and Sherry’s are great. Send one anytime. I can be slow to answer but it doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the notes.
