    Congratulations! It is a beautiful quilt. I'm glad that it brought in so much at the auction.

    I'm also happy you won it. Everyone benefits from your wonderful contribution.

    So if your Walmart sells material, I guess DH should buy you more. LOL

    That is just so cool. What are the chances of that happening. God blessed you as you were trying to bless your church. Way to go.

    Who could appreciate it's beauty and all the hard work that went into it more than you? Congratulations and enjoy. Maybe it was divine intervention, God always knows what He's doing and it's always the right thing.

    April,

    I was wondering what happened to you because I had not seen you posting on the board for a while.

    Was just getting ready to send you a pm but you came back and with a beautiful quilt and wonderful news.

    I am glad to know that you are okay. God bless you and your family.

    Congrats on your grand baby. Please post pics of the quilt when they are done.

    I am doing well thank you.

    Used to read romance novels when I was younger. Now I only have time for all things quilting related.
