Hi Kara!

I wanted to say hello and to thank you for all of your blog entries. I've been enjoying every detail of the garden planning and harvesting and the remodeling in your kitchen and the berry/fruit picking at your friend's house, and the quilt is BEAUTIFUL, no matter how you arrange the squares. I honestly couldn't pick a favorite.

Living in NYC I don't have the opportunity to have a garden (although it's been a desire of my heart for years--since I was a little girl picking veggies in my mamaw's garden and snapping beans on the back porch, etc.) and there aren't places to go to pick berries here (my cousin in Indiana and another friend have lots of blackberries and when I lived at home i'd have my fill of their crop--yummy!). So, your blog really makes me feel at home, in more ways than one.

I hope you don't mind that I've been reading!

love to you and yours,
kristen (smith) wright

Kristen! Of course I don't mind if you read! I invite you to keep reading. And how can I keep up with you these days?

I prefer #1 or #2.

Jennifer said...

That's my .02

Hi Kara!
I think number 1 is my favorite....although it was a very difficult decision. What an amazing quilt! You must post pics of the finished project.
Love you,

i like #2 or #4 the best!
you are so talented, kara. :)

Wow, that's gorgeous! I'd say arrangement 2 and 4 looks most in balance.
But like Kristen said; it's going to be goodlooking anyhow.


Meghan said...

I am a fan of #2! The quilt, that is...

Susie said...

I have to pick #1 but they all look nice.

I like arrangement #2 - you're probably done with this - just thought I would throw in my opinion. Wow - you cook, garden, and sew! I can cook from a recipe but the gardening and sewing I can't do at all!
Nichole - not Aaron!
