Synthia, my Blogging friend and fellow Snowbirder, has just finished the LAST blocks to Primitive Gatherings’ Block of the Week…and they are MAGNIFICENT!!  Be prepared to have your socks knocked right off those FEET! 


This quilt is going to be stunning…an heirloom quilt for sure!  Just look at Synthia’s work…WONDERFUL…and the perfect project to do while on the road or sitting in your Palm Springs condo!!  Ahhh Synthia has the good life!


All Synthia has left to stitch are the appliqued borders and cornerstones, along with piano keys sashing and final border…a piece of cake!! :) 

Thanks for sharing Synthia!  You will have to send us pictures when it is all finished!  I’m dying to see how you are going to quilt it!

Have a FUN Thrifty Friday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. Synthia's blocks are beautiful!!

  2. Beautiful blocks, and thanks for reminding us, I haven't hit the other sites yet;)


  3. Synthia's blocks are beautiful and I hope you post the finished quilt when it is done.

    I follow your blog and do wonder where you "stash" everything you buy and make... You must be much more organized than I am. LOL

  4. The two wool blocks are wonderful, wonderful! Was she working from a kit?

  5. Hope you had fun!! I scored a Wool Jacket in an interesting colour for $3. and a cute dress for Kassidy - all in one 5 minute stop. Off to watch her dance tonight in the Music Festival.

  6. Synthia's blocks are just wonderful! But now my feet are cold!!

  7. Synthia is my mother and I agree her blocks are beautiful! I know she's glad to have them finished. I can't wait to see them when she gets home. Thanks for posting her work. It's fun to see it here!
