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
