When I went to the Thames River Quilters guild meeting on Tuesday, my friend, Danielle, surprised me with a completed block holder. I had wanted to put this one together for years, but ran out of energy. Thanks, Danielle, for such a wonderful surprise of stitching it up for me. I love the soft, red flannel inside. This block holder is 20 inches and is large enough to hold my Mary Simon blocks. This type of holder, found in Elly Sienkiewicz' latest book, Baltimore Elegance, keeps blocks clean and wrinkle-free. It is random acts of kindness like this that spur me on. While pressing my completed blocks, I found a few more that I haven't posted to the blog, because I haven't photographed them yet. I hope to add them before I begin my next trip. I will be adding a photo of the new block holder as well.
