Friday Finish: Week of Posting

I don't have a quilt finish to share today, but I did finish the week by publishing a post five days straight!  Does that count?  Once upon a time that was the norm ;-)

"Memories" made by my mom for my sister
Last Friday I shared a picture of the quilt my mom made me for Christmas - her first quilt ever.  Her second quilt went to my sister who this week posted a picture on her blog.   My sister has a blog post here that shows my mom's second quilt ever made.  Next Friday I plan to share with you the THIRD quilt my mom made which just happens to be a peace quilt.

From the archives:  Pinwheel layout
In the meantime, Stephanie has a peace quilt finished and is hosting today's bloggy Peace pattern party.   Stephanie chose to make the pinwheel version for her daughter and let Elsa pick the fabrics.  I saw a picture of the quilt in progress, and it's awesome!!!  Please go see for yourself and leave a comment on Stephanie's post for a chance to win the pattern.  

Swap goodies from Stephanie
Stephanie is another Gruber 's retreat buddy with mad sewing and designing skills.  I was fortunate to benefit from her creativity during our Gruber's swap.  She's also super sweet, generous and encouraging (a prerequisite for attending a Gruber's retreat...ha!), and I am benefiting from those traits now as she tests my Peace Quilt pattern.  I know how long it takes to trim all those HSTs!
