 100 Blocks Surprise Giveaway!  

I have had a rotten bout of cluster Migraines lately and this wonderful win has cheered me no end. While I have not managed to get much sewing done it has been wonderful to look and fondle and have a quiet read. There is so much inspiration in the quilt world out there.
