Santa Claus is coooomiiiiing to toooown!

I know, I know, we are just a day away from  February, but I just received a little parcel and our poor-almost-frozen-Postman looked like Santa in front of my door!
What brought me Mr. Postman-Santa?

A book. A special book.
Why it is special?
Because it can be considered  "The who's who of quilting today": Rachel May gathered in it more than 70 of the most talented quilt artists to emphasize the styles of modern quilting and to encourage even those who have never sewn a stitch before, to give it a go. 
Take a look at the table of contents of the book. A lot of inspiration!

In chapter 7, "Coming full circle" the green hand is pointing you a name. Do you see it? 192...
Here's what is it about on page 192:

Well done, Geta! Congratulations! A well deserved place!

I only browsed the book. I  will read it leisurely tonight. The cake of my day!
Before I go, I'll show you a few pages more, just to increase your appetite too:

Red & White Quilts - my favorites!

Back to work now!
Have a beautiful day, my dears!

Almost done! / Aproape gata!

Working, working, working.

The pattern for this block is almost done. It is written in English. I need a helping hand from a native English speaker quilter to verify the text. 
Is someone willing to do this?
I look forward to your emails! 
Thank you in advance!

Have a beautiful day!

I am linking to Finish it up Friday!

Old things - New things / Lucruri vechi - Lucruri noi

New year is not just about new projects, but for finishing old ones too, said somebody these days.
I'm totally agree. 
I am enjoying this one:

It looked like this

Its story begins here.
Now the setting is totally different. One of my quilting friends encouraged me to change it. 

I decided to do so, even the pattern I made as a Courthouse Steps patchwork block was ready to go out in the Quilting World.
If it is possible to be done better, why not, I said to myself.
And I am writing a new pattern for this block.
I hope it will be attractive for the quilters and I hope too I will finish it soon.
My new fresh kona fabrics are waiting on my table.

Thank you for your fast delivery! 
One color - one Country Home Block.

To be continued...

Have a beautiful week!
