Hedgehog

Those of us in Tonya's first online class decided to send her a thank you - our names (or online names) made using her letter tutorials and Friday was the big reveal!

Not much quilting going on here lately. I did have a wonderful Thanksgiving with twelve American, German, Finnish, and Estonian guests. We had a similar menu to last year, with a few added treats, including a wonderful Chocolate Hazelnut cake made by a friend and two traditional Finnish Christmas carrot and turnip dishes made by another friend.

I was 'down south' in the big city for the weekend and noticed on the metro this morning that there's a Hedgehog Road (Siilitie/Igelkottvägen) stop on the Helsinki Metro! I will definitely have to get there to take pictures next time.

Your name looks great. Gorgeous background fabric! How cool, a road named after you lol.

Thank you for the block!

Can you get street signs made there? At hardware stores here you can get the real street signs made for you (probably cuts down on the theft). you could get a Hedgehog Road sign to keep - that would be so much fun.

Well done you! Love the background fabric.

I'd love to know how to make the carrot and turnip dish. We used to grow rutabagas in our garden. (So long ago, now.)

GREAT name block!! Love the combination of colors and the way they "play" together...

What a great block - the background makes me think of millefiori glass.

Hi Hedgie, I think the block you did for Tonya is SUPER! One of my most favorites ever...love, love, love that background, and the letters work soooo well with it! Great job!
Hugs, Finn

What a wonderful surprise for your teacher. I saw them all on Tonya's blog together and I can imagine what an impact that must have made. Your blog stands out, it's so spirited. I just love the fabrics!
