Positivity QAL - Winners from Sew Preeti Quilts

We have come to the end of our journey.  This is the final stop in the Positivity QAL 2021.

It took many emails, phone calls, scribbles and scrawls, and test blocks.  There were a couple of disappointments but many pleasant surprises. My hope was a dozen new quilts for the Mercyful Hospital. Bernie tells me that we have 19.  So far.

The Positivity QAL - Layouts and Fabric Requirements from Sew Preeti Quilts

Paul: Vanilla or Chocolate?
Me: Must I choose?
Paul: Yes.
Me: Well, in that case Vanilla with Chocolate sauce.
Paul: BRAT!!!

When we describe anything as vanilla, it means plain, dull or lacking in imagination. However vanilla is a perfect plain canvas to build upon.

You are welcome :-)

Here is ...
