    Well, this is what happened to them.

    I know you saw Yvonne's BEAUTIFUL blue, white, and red quilt she sent off to our Naomi earlier this month: http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/2994.page

    This is Auntie Marcella's contribution to the same charity auction.

    I mailed it on the Monday before Thanksgiving, and my darling niece received it that Wednesday (whew!) It does give a person pause to launch a quilt off into the postal system.

    And now I reckon all we can do is wait and see who adopts them. And try to catch up on all the COOL blocks we missed while we assembled these guys.

    It is mostly machine-quilted on my trusty old Singer, but I did try a bit of hand-quilting. I knew I was sending the quilt away and wouldn't have to live with my mistakes!

    There are 8 of our BOMs in the top and bottom rows. I had made the little red schoolhouse for another project, but it seemed to belong here. Then events ensued...

    oh Marcella, it's so cute. I hope the person who gets it has some idea of what goes into a quilt.

    I love the colors and best of all it is an original. Just think maybe someone somewhere will try to copy your design. A really nice use for the BOM's :D

    Beautifully done. There are no mistakes in quiltmaking only the unique touches that make it special.

    Hey y'all, I thank you kindly. You make me so fluffy and proud I could burst!

    This quilt made me happy when I was working on it (when it wasn't makin' me crazy) and sad (and relieved) when it was time to send it off, and now it's making me happy all over again thanks to you guys. All this positive energy has got to be good for the environment.

    Here, I'll show you my first attempt at free-hand quilting; no plan, just quilting away into the night. It was so fun, really. I only stopped because I hadn't yet got a very good callus on my forefinger.

    Thank you again for welcoming me back so warmly after yet another extended absence. Love from Marcella

    Of course I had to make some crows-foot/turkey tracks!
