I can't believe I am still sticking to this, especially since they are 18" blocks. The greens are all done now.
And the purples are almost finished. That will leave me with the blues and this will be ready for a layout and then sew together. By having everything prepped and by the machine, it was simple to just chain a few strips thru as I had time.
Our rainy season ended with a few days of hot and dry weather to make it possible for us to finally lay my brother to rest. The family gathered and we rode up the mountain to the old hunting cabin. As the last of the ashes were scattered along the hedge row in front of the cabin (were we laid our Day), two yellow butterflies fluttered out and flew around the group for a while and then went down the hedge row and out into the favorite hunting field. It was surely a sign that both souls united and found peace on the mountain they both loved.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your brother, and that was a lovely way to lay him to rest. Big hug for you.
I'm thankful you were finally able to release your brother to join his Dad. We had a similar experience with a butterfly at the services for a close friend. The butterfly flitted around the burial plot, landing a time or two on the grave stone of the couple's son who had died young in a car accident. Then it landed on the shoulder of our friend's husband before continuing to circle about. It brought both tears and a smile to those of us in attendance.
Sharon, I just love these blocks--they are beautiful wonderful color work...hugs, Julierose
P.S. Sorry to hear of your loss...I hope the lovely service helped to warm your heart...
Happy to hear you were able to say goodbye to your brother, reading about the butterflies brought me to tears.
Love your blocks.
Truly beautiful quilt blocks. I am looking forward to seeing how they come together and I'm sure they will look stunning. What a wonderful place to bury your brother and how special to have the butterflies. I do think they were helping to welcome him to heaven as well as bring you and others a smile knowing he is where he wants to be.

After so many months of trying to to be a member of the illuminati and was scammed the sum of $3,000 i became so desperate in being a member online who will not add to my pains, then i decided to contact a friend of mine who recently became a member, we discussed about the issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called Paul mark who is the grand master in the whole of Africa. So i applied to become a member of illuminati easily without stress and all the preparations were made concerning how to become a member in two(2) days i became a member and the sum of 1.5 million dollars was deposited into my bank account so i want to advice any one who wants to become a member should call him +2349130700648 or WhatsApp him +2349130700648 or email (email@example.com) he does not know am doing this i pray that lucifer will bless him for the good things he has done in my life.
