Could these be balloons ???? Well if they are , I'm ready to celebrate the upload of all these photos, 27 of them throughout the past few posts. I had to keep a list of what ones I'd done so I didn't get confused, which BTW, is easily done, but I think we got 'em and I hope you enjoyed looking them over.

Thank you for sharing all these pictures. That really is a treasure you have. I like the picture of the entire top, as you can see order she put in her quilt with the fans in each corner an a center block that kind of dominates the block itself. I guess the structured side of me likes to see that. Are you going to replace the blocks that have desintegrated?
