Hello!! I am a huge lover of Modas Ruby collection and I found your block through google. Could you please let me know if you have made this sweet block into a finished quilt?

I got here through Pinterest. The link to "love affair with my brother" leads to objectionable content. Just thought you would want to know

Erin @ Why Not Sew? Quilts said...

THANK YOU so much for letting me know that! I think I have deleted all links. Seams as though Sunni no longer blogs and her site was taken over. How awful you had to see that. I appreciate so much you letting me know!!! Erin
