I love happy endings!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
So glad that although they didn't reach their original destination, you got them back. The next time someone tells you that you don't need to insure a package, especially quilts, ignore them. I always insure quilts, even small baby quilts, as I've put a lot of time, material and effort into making them.
Whew! Thank goodness they arrived. Did the PO tell you what happened to delay them?
When I went to mail them, the post office clerk asked what was inside (I have never been asked that), I being honest told him, the post office clerk said I was not allowed to insure them because they had no value....being so close to Christmas I mailed them any way since I had never had a problem....what a mistake....I always insure my quilts, I knew better....the box they were in was damaged badly but they still made their way , I would assume the box got caught one of their machines because of the condition of the box.
I am so glad that they arrived. These are very beautiful.
This is why I go to UPS to mail my quilts, yes the lady behind the counter always asks and yes she always insures them for me. Now this lady is a friend, and recently asked me for a quilt for the child of one of her employees. It seems her dad is a disabled vet with a quilt of valor that he treasures greatly. His daughter wanted her own quilt as well because of his. I also love how with UPS I can track the package on line and know for sure it is delivered. All my quilts go UPS and two of the children of UPS employees have quilts of their own because of it.

One simple rule for happiness
1. Kindness counts.
Happy they showed up, but I have a question. Why were you not allowed to insure them? This makes no sense.
glad they arrived safe and sound. very pretty quilts.
