Quiltmaker's 100 Block Blog Tour

There's a wonder Block Tour happening NOW.
One of the amazing designers is The Noble Wife aka Jacquelynne Steves.  Here is a bit of eye candy.  There are suggestions for various layouts.  Please visit and be inspired.

What's all the fuss?

What are my kitties checking out?

Something sure has their attention.
Wait, what is that among my Liriope?
Is it a cake on my doorstep?
It's a mockup of my pom pom American flag.
I had hoped to participate in a blog hop celebrating pom poms.  Things happen and that did not come to fruition.  I had planned to make an American flag before, I think, any of us had an idea of the terror to occur in Boston.  Then, I kept hearing on our local news of the anniversary of the bombing of the Murrow Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995.  Living in the Tulsa area, only 2 short hours from OKC, I remember going to visit the site shortly after the bombing.  I have been to the incredible memorial and attended a damaged (and now repaired) church across the street from the site, while I was working in the City.  Then the local news continued with the tragedies to strike our area.  April 24, 2008 a tornado struck Catoosa (basically east Tulsa), killing 7 people.  We are fast approaching the first anniversary of the devasting tornado in Joplin, MO which is only about a 4 hour drive.  The blog hop has very creative ladies from around the globe.  I am absolutely amazed at their creativity, accomplishments, and dedication to their crafts.  So, the fuss is all about resiliency and those who selflessly help each other on a day to day basis.
