New Blogger!

I was reading Libby's blog today and discovered that one of the BIG NAMES in the world of primitive quilting, has started a blog of her own! HAPPY DAY!  Cheri Payne has her own distinctive style that really appeals to me and I have made several of her projects from the many books and pamphlets that I own. She's only been blogging a few days, but I look forward to getting to know her better through her posts. And I sure hope she shares pictures of her home so we can see how she displays her wonderful creations! She is sharing a block-by-block project called soot&ashes so we can sew along with her if we want to. Boy, do I want to! This afternoon I whipped up all three blocks that she's done so far - I'm using reds instead of the blues that she chose - since I have no idea what the finished quilt will look like, I sure hope it will work! It's kinda like a mystery quilt, huh? The blocks are only 5" so they work up fast! I hope nothing gets me distracted from checking her blog every day for new instructions! Here's what I have worked up so far.......

Hi, I just checked out your blog after seeing you comment over at Cheri's blog. I'm so excited she's started her blog because her designs are my favorite. I like your blocks in red! I've been trying to decide what colors to use because I don't have any greys. :-)

Stop tempting me to start quilting ~ PLEASE!!! I don't have enough time to take up another craft.
I think your quilt is going to be wonderful!
Hugs :)

Thanks for the great info. I was wondering about your name, did you ever read that book called The Middle Sister? It was one of my favorites when I was a girl and I read it over and over. It always makes me smile when I see your name.
I was just thinking about it.

I just wrote directions for the first 6 Cheri blocks. I see you are right on the ball making some.
