It reminds me of the beautiful green hills and lakes of the Midwest (my countryside!). Great job, Nona.

Nona, I am so impressed with your energy in making a swatch a day. Good for you! I love this one, I saw the Gee's Bend quilts and loved those also. A blanket of squares like this would be so lovely!

Hey Nona, I'll trade you this swatch for my January 12 collage. What do you say?

I LOVE this one, and thanks for the link to the 365 collage.

This looks awesome. I have trying to find a pattern for a blanket that I want to make for my aunt, and i may have to borrow this idea...full credit will be given to you.
