    Thank you for this lovely pattern, Judy. I have really enjoyed working on it. I’m only at Step 9 right now but working steadily along and really pleased with the look of it. 🙂

    Thank you, thank you, thank you……..what fun I’ve had for the past 2 weeks spending time in my sewing room working on my fabulous quilt top. I am going to continue my QFAH project by making the backing from the left overs of the fat quarters so I can get it quilted before next weekend….
    I love the way mine is turning out. Again, thank you.

    Thank you so much Judy. It’s a fabulous quilt. I already have ideas for a second one for my little niece using alphabet blocks for the pieced border. The planning is so much fun! I have the alphabet–now to find just the right additional fabrics.

    Thank you so much for this pattern, Judy! I have the quilt top hanging on my design wall, and I just love it!! Two more borders, and it is done!! Your generosity in offering these patterns is sooo much appreciated.

    Judy, thank you so much for doing this for us. I was doing so well and then my machine broke. I am catching back up and hope to have my top done this weekend. I am so glad I went ahead and did one because this pattern is way out of the box for me and I love how it looks. I also am thinking about making another one now that I know how easy it is to get one together.

    I also wanted to say that I wish you hadn’t named it Freeze Frame because every time I come here and see that name I get that song stuck in my head!

    Man I am behind. Having that baby last week put me back a few days. I am still making the squares for the border. I really want to be done by this weekend. Better get to work since the baby is sleeping and the 3 year old is planting stuff with grandma.

    I have enjoyed following along with you on this quilt. I have it on the back burner as I am working on a quilt for my soon to be here 4th grandbaby. He’s due in December. Looking forward to making this one and will be following the next. I enjoy your work and excitement you have for it! Thank you for sharing your beautiful quilts and patterns with us all!
