    JUDY, I just sent you a PM.
    I eat, I sleep, I quilt, I eat, I sleep, I quilt... awwwww retirement! I earned it, I deserve it, I'm lovin' it!

    A day without quilting is like a day without sunshine.

    I chose the pink and yellow fabrics to make a throw size for my dgd, I really like how it turned out even if we have a pink lemonade overload. It's a beautiful pattern and thank you very much, Judy.

    Bluebonnets, Love your color combination. Very pretty quilt for your grand daughter. Like the stripe for the sashing.

    Bluebonnet - your quilt came out great! I love how you did your sashing, I would have never thought to use stripes that way. What a winner!

    Hope springs eternal and it’s so pretty to look at, that you’ll want it to get done. So refreshing!

    Thanks coopah and tscweaves.

    Hand quilting a queen size for my son and almost finished. I hope to start this one next. I have it out to encourage me. Thinking of quilting it with random flowers, hearts, and sguigglies 😊 Thinking I'll just have fun and draw them on the quilt.

    Sounds like a good plan! Once you start, it’ll be done quickly. :-)

    Since the mystery is over with, I don't know how many of you will be checking on the site, but wanted to let you know.

    I am sorry to post this, but want to let you know of the passing of Jan, our JustJan. She collapsed sometime the first week of November and was admitted to the ICU on Nov. 6th. She did not improve and was moved to hospice Wednesday and passed away Nov. 23rd.

    Jan had been a follower of many of my mysteries, and in the past couple years had become a friend. We emailed at least once a day, usually more, and talked on the phone often. She was a great friend and will be missed. Jan was also a terrific quilter, and she had display racks in her home for her beautiful quilts. Last time I talked to her, Oct. 29, she was in terrific spirits, making new blocks for a another quilt.

    Some of you may know that she had extensive cancer surgery in spring and was undergoing chemotherapy and her doctor was very positive of her recovery. I believe that her doctor had planned on completing the chemo in November. She did not pass away as a result of the cancer.

    She did not have any family locally. Any services will be private and in her home state.

    It feels like a ton of bricks have fallen on me. What a loss to all, but especially to this Board where JustJan shared her immense knowledge so generously. My sympathies and prayers are with you, Judy, as you cope with the loss of a good friend. So sorry to hear such sad news.

    My deepest sympathy, Judy. Like others have said, she shared her knowledge freely.

    My heart is so sad.

    I have copied the announcement over to a new thread in General ChitChat.
    Please repeat or add comments to that thread so members not on the train will see it.

    Jan will be sorely missed.
