So friends, I lost my brother Phil this past July. Super sad but at his funeral I got to see a bunch of family I should definitely see more often. My nieces and nephews (Phil had no children) all commented on how much they love the quilts I post on facebook.  I was in the process of designing a quilt for Phil because I knew he was becoming ill....I just didn't make it soon enough.  I guess because I'm a girl I made my sister's quilts and their daughters quilts first intending to get to my two brothers and his daughters eventually.  Well I learned the hard way that maybe I need to make eventually happen now.  So right after I returned home I decided to make sure my remaining brother, his daughters and son, and any other folks I care about will be getting quilts ASAP.  On July 17th I declared that by December of this year I will make 10 quilts.  Some are for family, some for friends, and some are UFO's that I MUST finish.  Since that day I have completed three!  The first one is a quilt for my aunt Merci who gave me all her mother's quilting books and notions when she had to put her in a nursing home. When she gave me a bunch of bags of fabric too she asked me to look for some fabric that had elegant ladies on it and if I find it could I make her something. Her mother never got around to maker her a quilt with it. So by the grace of God, among all those scraps and UFO's I found a sandwich bag of what I thought were 3 and 4 inch scraps, luckily I looked before I tossed in the donation bag for my guild.  There they were! About twenty little three inch squares with the ladies on them.  I didn't have many options design wise as there wasn't much to work with so I chose Courthouse Steps. This photo is sideways,,,I can't get it to be the right way but if you look closely you'll see the ladies in the center of each block.
