The Desperate Housewife's Quilt - Week 24 Wreath

Welcome to week 24 of the 'The Desperate Housewife's Quilt'. Todays block is foundation pieced. Remember, this is not a quilt-a-long. Just follow the blog every week and pick and choose which blocks you would like to make. I will be injecting some uniqueness into traditional blocks, applique, three dimensional, crazy and thread-art blocks. If you make a block please post it on the Flickr group for everyone to enjoy. Also, I have this nifty button under each post that allows you to save the post as a PDF.

Be sure to visit this week's Guest Blogger and their wonderful block.
(N.B Due to time and date differences, guest bloggers posts do not always coincide with my post)

This week we are lucky to have two guest bloggers. Charlie Scott from Qubee Quilts / P2Squared and Sue Belleli from Quilted Hugs (same may know Sue from the Quilting Blocks Swap Australia) 

Charlie has made this gorgeous Snowflake and Sue has made a delightful Scrappy Tree. Be sure to visit their blogs and have a look around. 


The circle of love and hope that eternally reminds us of all that is good, all that is human and all that is given by God.
