Isn't this a cute block? It's the first in a Block of the Month series by Susan Guzman. You can sign up for the series, and she will very kindly send each design to you by email when it is released. I thought this one was whimsical and would be great for using up some polka dots and miscellaneous brights. I'm looking forward to the February block in this series, as well as the one that Debi is doing through Quilting Passion Forum.
Our son called last night and said that he and DDIL had heard the heartbeat of the new baby she is carrying! It is a fast heartbeat, which he said is probably another girl. We already know, since we have darling granddaughter Avery, that they make wonderful girls, so that is fine with us. Whichever way it turns out, we are thrilled to welcome little "Jellybean", as we are calling the baby now.
