Well, pretty soon a package came in the mail for me, and it was Susan's project - all cut out and organized perfectly to make it easy to finish up.
I started with this -
and had a finished flimsy in January.
Meanwhile, I won a prize of long arm quilting from Carole at From My Carolina Home -
so I sent the flimsy and backing off to Carole to be quilted. It came back last weekend, and this week, I stitched on the binding to finish everything up.
I'm so pleased with this finish! The quilting is perfect for it - hearts and swirls in a pretty brown thread that has a bit of a shine to it.
I had told Carole that this quilt was going to be donated to a Silent Auction to benefit a local charity - the B.A.B.Y. Foundation. And, surprise to me - she generously included a second quilt when she sent this one back to me, another one that can go to the silent auction. Thank you, Carole! It's such a cute one - an ABC I Spy quilt.
I'll be passing these two little quilts on to my friend (who is a quilter, too, by the way!) who volunteers for the B.A.B.Y. Foundation and in April I'll get to see them on display at the dinner and silent auction. I think we'll make some money for them, don't you?
