I am really enjoying the time it takes to think of my blogging friends. The next person on my list does not have a blog so I can not go there to spy on her likes and dislikes, or send the rest of you there for a visit.
Susan has something in common with me. Both of us left our homes to marry someone and move to the other side of the world. I went west and ended up in the far east. She went east and ended up in Dubai. I looked through my block books, hoping to find an interesting block that represented east and west. Not finding one that spoke to me of Susan, I picked something else.
I thought it was appropriate because I was lucky to meet Susan earlier this year. Not only that, she was lucky to win a trip to the Tokyo Dome Quilt Show, coming all the way from Dubai to Tokyo.
We spent a day together, and at one shop we both bought a pack of the same fabric, a selection of warm browns from light to dark.
I decided to use some of these in the block for her and added a camellia print as the sasanqua were blooming at that time of year.
I will continue to think of her often and our short time together. I also have developed great respect for all the bloggers out there making those "Dear Jane" quilts with hundreds of little blocks. Trying to get all those little pieces into one four-inch block is not an easy task!
Cheers, my friend. When you begin a blog, I will become a loyal follower.
