Welcome to the Cloud9 New Block Blog Hop!  I'm Renee and these are some of the quilts I've made this year:

Some of my 2016 quilts!

Here is the block I designed this time around, and let me just say that the Cloud9 solids are so nice to work with:

  6. Coming from the Hurricane belt along the Gulf of Mexico, your block represents those big storms perfectly! I may have to make a pillow out of one for my dad and stepmom who still live there. Thanks!
