For Helen

On it's way to Waratah NSW!
Yea it's still January so I am thinking that it
will arrive by mid-month...smile
I am trying to figure out how long some of these take
to fly over and find their homes in Australia.
Hope that Helen will like it...
she had requested in her mail that if I did this block
to leave it in 4 sections and she is putting them together.
Felt sorta funny sending it in pieces....I loved this block & could
see a sweet lil-quilt put together!
Hope that they fit with your collection Helen....
 I used Kona Cotton for the white & I love those
 Kona's they sew up so nice.
