    This quilt is stunning! I love everything about it, the fabric and the quilting are all stunning.
    Quilter momma did an awesome job!

    Beth, Thank you my friend. ((a warm hug))

    I will put a pic or two here but will put more over in the Group album. Please help me in giving QuilterMomma a huge "It is so beautiful".

    And to our Swap host mother, a huge thank you for keeping all (or most) of us on track and focused.

    best,

    Sibi, I felt quite inadequate myself when I began this process but the quilters on this board are so compassionate and sincere and have encouraged me all along the way, especially quiltermomma. I am finishing the binding tonight and putting the label on and mine is ready for mailing. Each of the quilters knows what you put into the quilt you made - your heart, your mind, your creative side and desire to make someone else's life more special. Thanks quilters for helping me grow through this process.

    Oh Tam...Moo, I have been working on yours so faithfully, I have the pieces of logs leftover all sewn together and recut to make the little 3" 9 patch border blocks. So going to be cute. Put in a little extra sashing and a small pink/red polkadot fabric to add a spark of home fire to the log cabin effect of the blocks which have pretty appliques in them. I am planing on getting it done for sure this weekend. I will work on it tonight and see how far I get. You are going to love this. I am starting to see the whole project come together.

    Wendy, you will find that your quilt has a few mistakes too. So I hope you love it in spite of the boo boo's. I will love your quilt because of the mistakes. I am serious, I will love it because it was made by you!

    My PO opens at 11:00am today, I am going to get my quilt!!!

    Such a pretty quilt, terryl!! Great job! Can't imagine there are any mistakes. Remember, there's no mistakes-just say "creative accents" !!
    I bought the minky for my partner's quilt-just need to wash it and then sandwich and quilt it on my domestic machine this coming week,hopefully. My quilting will be less detailed as one done by a long arm quilter!! Hope my partner, Angela-- mrsaj11 will like it!

    Finally, after several hours sewing 1.5" pieces of scraps from the log cabins, I finally finished all the 3" 9 patch blocks for the border. I have sewn it on and is on the longarm now. I just may get it done this weekend like I want to. Will ahve to get the embroidery machine out so can do a label. Whew, so close. Tam Moo is also my monthly block partner for June and I have her block already done! Got two things done today.

    Finally done quilting Tam Moos quilt. Now to get that binding on and label. Getting out the embroidery machine as we speak so I can make a label for her. I think I could get into doing applique on the longarm.
