Finished Piece

I too have finished the little quilt that most recently arrived at my house.  I plan on mailing it Monday.  I do know it is headed west - but as I live in Georgia - oh well - still a secret.  If the recipient does not like this one, send it right on back to me.  Oh and I used one of my office mailing labels, so a package from a lawyer in South Georgia is not dangerous this time.

Quilt for Cathy L!

Finished the little quilt!  It is all packed up and will be mailed to Cathy in IA Monday or Wednesday.....Hope you LOVE it!  The people that did the 2 borders did a pretty awesome job.  Knowing how this one turned out really has me excited to see what will arrive in Nashville!!!

Enjoy :-)

Received and Loving It!

Got my center with two rounds to finish!  Thanks, I have to think on it a bit.  Nothing is jumping out at me right now, but I will put it on the design wall while I pull the wallpaper off my bathroom!  It will come.

glen:  thanks Teri, uh I mean Tami.......LOL  I love the little squares!

The Last Lap

Hi Robineers!

All of the center-with-two-borders have been mailed out, and most have been received. If you're one of the few people (two, I think) who haven't let me know they received a top -- please remember to post when you have it.

A couple of reminders:

- don't forget to email me a photo of the finished quilt, once you've finished.  It would be great if you could take the photo straight on, rather than at an angle.  (I put the quilt on the floor and stand over it to take a picture...)

- the deadline for mailing your finished quilt is June 30 -- plenty of time -- but please don't mail it before June 1.  I don't want anyone getting into a panic when their own quilt arrives home before they've even started working on the finishing!


(still trying to figure out what on earth to do with the quilt I need to quilt)


I received my block-with-two-borders and it's fabulous.  Really exquisitely done piecing.  I'm working on the quilting now!

Denver Dear Jane Blocks

The blocks on the left are the ones I completed in Denver CO this past week.  On the right is the whole collection so far.  I am enjoying my journey.

Happy stitching.

My ready to quilt block came

Hurray! My block arrived from Nan! It's beautiful and I'm dreaming of how to quilt it!

Flimsy received

Darn, I forgot to post.  I received a lovely quilt top late last week to finish for a lucky someone.  It's so pretty I wish I could keep it for myself!  It's pinned to my sewing room wall so I can look at it while I debate how to quilt it.  Hard to believe we're nearly at the finish line!

Second Border on its way to Glen (not Gail)

Glen keep an eye out for your package. (I apologize but I wrote down Gail instead of Glen. Ugh!) I did put in a little something for you because I was so late in mailing it out to you. Hope you like it. :-) Here's a sneak peek done up in sepia tones.


Mine just arrived from Sophie.  It's pretty amazing and I can't wait for you to see the reveal!

(Almost) on the way to Helen

I finally finished the second round on my second quilt this weekend.  It will be on it's way to Helen in Nashville tomorrow morning, via USPS Priority Mail.

For those that like to play the guessing game ... I used some of these little 2 inch (finished size) improvised blocks as some of the elements in the border.

Improvised Purple Squares

Now I can start thinking about finishing the last quilt ... that has been calling my name from the design wall for a while ...

Updated to add that–as hard as it was to let go of this one–I dropped it off at the post office at lunchtime. USPS says it will arrive Wednesday. (I've sent the tracking number to Helen). 

Who is mailing to me?

am checking my mailbox everyday!

Second Border

    I mailed my second border off today to California! One more to receive! Then let the quilting begin!


Have you seen the package from me in Louisiana yet????


Tiny quilt arrives

I woke up this morning to find an envelope in the mailbox from Terry - that was quick! I'm not exactly sure how I will approach the quilting, but I have a few busy weeks ahead of me so I need to get it done sooner rather than later.
