Then, to balance things out, every now and then I also get lovely messages from quilters who have made quilts with my patterns and kindly share pictures of their creations. They truly lift my spirits and encourage me to keep working.
Anita in Ottawa shared her beautiful version of my Spring Blooms quilt (I shared the block tutorial here). I love seeing alternate versions of my designs. Anita chose very different fabrics and chose a straight setting instead of an on-point setting. Same blocks, very different quilt! I'm very late sharing this picture. Anita sent me this last spring and I saved it in the wrong folder and couldn't find it again. I'm so glad I finally stumbled into the correct folder!

Mary M. made Geese Across the Table placemats. I love her color choices. She chose to make them less scrappy than mine and I think that worked out very well.

Mary also made a version of Tic Tac Who? for her grandchild, choosing to make the puppy a Labradoodle like the family dog. Works for me!

Here is Sue Zimmerman's Snow Dreams tree skirt, which she finished in time for Christmas. It was her first ever paper pieced project! Nothing like jumping in with both feet, but she did a fabulous job. Nancy Troyer quilted it for her.

And Marilyn F. shared her Canada 150 quilt. Check out the fun pieced back as well, with a pieced label about her participation in both Canada's 100th and 150th anniversary celebrations.

Thank you for sharing and for the encouragement, ladies! I'm off to work on a new pattern!
