I went to the post office in Cheyenne, WY to mail out the finished quilt to ???? It's such a difference going to a post office that's just a block from the state capitol building. So it's a toss up whether it'll get to its home faster or slower than if it were mailed from my home post office in Sunnyvale, CA. I do hope that the final recipient likes it. I used a perle cotton to hand quilt some of the quilt's details.
