Anni Downs...

Today I got mail from Anni Downs...writer of the fantastic book
"An Angels Story".
It is from this book we are making the angels we are so in love with...and are determined to finish!!
She loved the idea...and wrote this:

"This sounds like a BRILLIANT idea!!, and I absolutely LOVE the badge – I WANT ONE!!!"

So I guess ...now we have her blessings and this will go like a dance to get this quilt together!!
Hope there are more of you that want to join... don´t be scared of the deadlines...just join and see where it leads...of course the prize will be drawn from the ones who are finished 1st of January 2009..but the biggest prize must be to have this gorgeous quilt finished!! Don´t you agree!! So join and we all support each other!!
If you forgot the the simple rules...here they come again...
Top finished by 30th September..and quilt finished (quilted and binded) 1st of January 2009!!
So feel free to use this badge made of Marica...isn´t it lovely... and use this link to the picture:

And I know some of you have already started so look here...and you will see some lovley ones!!

  6. Your angel blocks are wonderful! I did a close up view of your blocks. Your stitching is just perfect. I don't know anything about the book you are using for the patterns. Looks interesting.
