    They look like happy quilts, I'm sure they will put smiles on the recipient.

    I ran a community quilt day at my group today, 20 people came and we sewed packs I'd prepared over the last few months, abou 15 quilt tops went home with people to finish quilting and binding, can I steal your ideas for the next lot I cut, they're really lovely

    I always have to pick a favorite, even if all are lovely - No. 1 is just so perky! They will be loved.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
