    Will need someone to help me post final pics, Tcharlie is gonna try to talk me through it over the phone this weekend, pics really don't do it justice. It was such a privildge and honor to be trusted and given free range with this special quilt. It was fun collaborating with Marci and calling Karen with our ideas. The lady that bought the quilt, fell in love with it before we had it completely finished, we still needed to clip threads and wash it before it could go to it's permanant home. I told her how much we were hoping to raise for the quilt and she was happy to pay it. Gensquilts once again did a wonderful job with the binding. (She's my "go-to" girl for all my binding) Thank you everyone for your awesome blocks.

    RevPam, I actually REALLY did do the happy dance when, I had the check in my hand :lol: :mrgreen: :roll: :lol: one of my clients (male) came in the salon as I was dancing in the middle of the room with Karen on the phone, he thought I had lost my mind until I let him read the story of the farm quilt. Then he did a few dance steps with me!!!!
