A Surprise Square

My friend, Shirlee Fassell, stopped by today and brought me the following 6" square to add to my growing collection.  Her work always amazes me and I'm so happy to have this to include in my fabric book of squares.  Thank you so much Shirlee.

  1. Beautifully exquisite. How wonderful to add to your collection this treasured art piece. Happy Holly Jolly Joy...

  2. Hi maureen

    I remember those pink beaded flowers from something Shirlee did on your blog a couple of years back. They are just as pretty now as then.

    It is a beautiful square.

    Merry christmas to you.



  3. This is truly beautiful, Maureen!

    My square for you is finished and will be in the mail this week. It has a different look than these...so I will send it with "love and trepidation", as my mother used to say. ;-)

  4. Beautiful! You are gathering quite a beautiful collection of blocks for your book. When I catch up I must copy your idea..I already have your exquisite block.

  5. Wow, truly amazing work! Beautiful!

  6. What a lovely block! Doesn't it delight your heart just to look at it. Jane in MO
