Sent and Received

I have received my quilt from Helen. Thanks it's beautiful. I sent off Racheals quilt today. She should have it in a day or two. Love hearts!

It's here! It's here!

Yesterday I came home from a trip. Today the parcel lay in front of my door. Oh, the surprise! Susan didn't only put my little quilt in but also some treats. My chocoholic husband was also happy. Thank you so much.
Sophie, Marie and Susie presented me with an exquisite little quilt. This is my first Cotton Robin and it will get a prominent spot in my house. Thank you, ladies. Awesome!

I did go back and look through emails and comments, but I apologize if you've already communicated and I missed it!



Princess Kate

I was lucky enough to finish the little quilt that heads to England for Princess Kate!

Bet you didn't know we had Royalty, did you?  I mailed yesterday and the mean lady at the post office made me open it up so she could see it was not illicit merchandise.  I think she just wanted to see the quilt.

Luckily, I had not sealed it up since I was thinking I might need a different envelope.

So, next week, Kate!

Let me know how you love it!  This was the most  amazing little quilt I have ever worked on.  I so wish it were mine.

Last night, I finished the quilting on the Cotton Robin piece and auditioned several pieces for the binding, but in the end I knew I needed the gold.

It is the best Cotton Robin I have ever seen in all the years I have been working on them.

I don't want to send it off..........

Well travelled!

My tiny quilt arrived at it's forever home in the woods (forest) of Oregon with this morning's mail. Quite a trip it had: Oregon, California, to the UK, back to the USA (Michigan), on to New Zealand, and finally back to Oregon. I think it may have travelled more than I did this year, especially if all the Gulf Coast states we visited are counted as one trip. Thank you all! My little quilt is wonderful. And double thank you to Julie for making CR 2016 the best EVER! Hats off to you!!!!!

The clock is ticking!

Welcome to Summer!  

The deadline for mailing out your completed quilt is June 30 -- so you should be finishing up the quilting & binding if you haven't already done so...

I was working away at mine yesterday, but when I ran out of bobbin thread I decided it was too hot to keep going (I'm probably not the best example!)

Please remember to email a photo of your completed quilt to me (don't post it here) and to let me know when you mail it and when you receive yours back.  Once everyone has her own quilt, I'll post "the big reveal" to the world.
