    Remember my quilt that was ruined - IT'S BACK!!!! Thank-you Pungogal

    I posted several weeks ago about sending my very first quilt out for quilting and the lady about destroyed my quilt.

    Fast forward to this week, I received my rescued quilt back from the wonderful, generous, kind, ( I can't say enough good things) QB member, Pungogal, who along with the help of her sweet friend Terri, re-quilted my quilt. It is awesome, I love it and I am so grateful for these kind ladies who did this out of the goodness of their hearts.

    I am giving it to my niece tonight for her 19th Birthday, she will use it at college.

    I am so thrilled with the quilt, but I am awed by the kindness of a stranger, I hope I can find a way to pay it forward.

    *** I will add photos soon I hope, it will not upload photos right now????? I will try again later.

    Yes, finally they uploaded! It is folded in half, it is approximately 94 x 64. Didn't she do a fantastic job!

    What a difference! I'm sure your niece will be delighted. All credit to Pungogal and Terri. Did you ever speak to the original LAQ or the person who recommended her?

    I did call the store who recommended her, but I have not spoken to her yet. NOt sure if I will or not, probably not. That is very hard to do.

    Happy your quilt turned out so beautiful! Blessing to all who helped make it so. Hopefully the quilt shop owner will let the first quilter know she needs more practice.

    That is lovely and I know your niece will be thrilled with it. I took a quilt to a lady that was not very talented .. I was trying to save about $50...long story short..won't happen again!

    Oh, I love it. I have some black, grey, yellow fabrics that I've been wondering what to do with. This might be the answer!

    Really lovely and a really generous gesture all round.
    So much quilting, so little time!
