  4. Patty, thanks for taking on this role. I just found OMG in October and plan to use it each month to get a project done.

  5. I want to post from IG instead of flickr. So does that mean if I use the # and @ from IG I don't have to post on the linkup page?

  6. I look forward to participating in 2017. Thanks for hosting.

  7. You did a fabulous job to keep up with the sampler blocks...way to go!

  8. I was too late to do the link up at the beginning of January. I hope I can figure it out for February. I have never done a Linky thing. Hoping this very old quilter can learn this new trick.8-) My 'word' for 2018 is 'Finish', so this would really help with that.

  9. I just found your blog and missed the first two months, but I will join up in March! Thanks!

  10. Well this month I am continuing on with last months goal to finish a quilt I am making for my husband.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
