Yippee! and I give in

I am so happy that everyone's quilts are finally home!  It felt a little like herding cats at a couple of points, but it's like what they say about childbirth... you forget the pain pretty quickly and jump right in to do it again! 

(I have no personal experience with childbirth, however, so don't trust me on that...)

Anyway, I'm going to give in on you making a quilt for me, and send the "spare" block that Sandra made to Glen. The original plan was that I was going to do a border, and then Glen, and then Sophie would quilt it.  So -- anyone who wants to get in between Glen and Sophie should get in touch with Glen  (go to her blog and check her profile for the email address) and it's up to you if you want to post progress photos or not.  And thank you in advance!

Julie

p.s. Jay -- I can't decide which way I like your quilt best.  Maybe you could just rotate it from time to time?

The Wandering Quilt Has Wandered Home!!!

I just received my quilt from Laurina in New Zealand today!!!  I am so pleased it returned to me...it is lovely!!!!  Thank you Kathleen, Sandra, and Laurina for the beautiful work you all did!!!!  Now I have one big decision to make...do I display it with the center block horizontal or vertical!!!!  I hope all you "Cotton Robins" will help me make up my mind!

Horizontal????

or Vertical???

Now, Julie...are all the quilts in? and, if so would you be willing to send the orphan block around with a schedule for us all to make for you?????
