Time to go back to Penrose

I called Judy this morning with a special request: I asked if I could get a small quilt for my recliner with a block from each of my quilting sisters and then one for Steve and me. That way, when I go to sleep at night, I can say good night to Louise, Elizabeth, Judy, Ann, and Steve. I miss my big retirement quilt with all of the family blocks and messages. Now we need to resurrect this blog and post valuable thoughts and information while we are all still here.
