My Anti-Spam Rant

My blog has been discovered and not in a good way.

Every day when I open my e-mail, I have at least five, yes, FIVE, e-mails from "Anonymous" posting comments on my blog. Why??  Does anyone every really click on the links in their messages??  On occasion, there may be one that sounds almost reasonable, until you realize its posted on a quilting blog! I just don't understand the mentality of people who program computers to do nothing but search out websites to post their idiotic messages and their worthless links.

So...that being said, to comment on my blog, you must have an account with Google or any other valid third party (WordPress, TypePad, etc.)  I'm sorry to do this and I hope you (yes, Sara, I'm talking to you) can all understand. I know this makes it a bit more difficult to comment, but please take the time. I love seeing that someone is reading!!

Thanks for your patience!!

Megan's Crab Apple Hill Quilt

Megan took over a year and half to complete this quilt. She put so much time and effort into it that I wanted to make sure I did the same when quilting it for her. This will be a photo heavy blog post, and one worth checking out a few of the pics close up (just click on them to enlarge). Her workmanship is so incredible! This quilt is for her son's bed, thus the reason for the extra borders.

Crab Apple Hill offers this Gardner's Alphabet Quilt as a Block of the Month. Have a look: (As you can tell, this quilt is HUGE. It was hard to photograph properly!)

Below are shots of some of the individual blocks. Hopefully, you don't get too bored. Its just such a pretty quilt, I want to share.

Okay, if I haven't lost you yet, here are a couple pics of the border detail:

And a couple shots of the back:

I know its been awhile since I posted, and it will be awhile again. I'm off to Quincy for the annual retreat and to visit my sister! Hope your summer was fun and wonderful!!
