I finally received the blocks from Carolyn two days ago. They came all the way from Saskatchewan , Canada!! They had to come a LONG way all the way to Michigan. She is the second Canadian to make blocks for this quilt. PTM is Canadian too even though she lives in MI. Your blocks are awesome, Carolyn, thank you very much!!
In addition the lovely Carolyn sent me a beautiful needle case. Thank you again, for your thoughtfulness!!
I got the Veteran's quilt back from LTW yesterday and thought you might like to see the quilting on it. Stars and loops, very simple but very appropriate! Thanks, LTW!! Your work is great as usual.
So last night I had quilting (no not at the church) with the Canton Area Quilt Guild (our new name). I brought the veteran's quilt to trim (it is ready for the binding now) and then I worked on Matt's quilt. I managed to finish the top!! I am so excited. I will be handing it off to LTW today. I am so pleased at how it came out!! I did put all your names and where you are from on each block that you sent to me because I wanted anyone that saw it to know it was a group effort. I can't thank all of you enough for helping with this quilt. I think it will mean even more to Matt that people he has never met took the time and effort to do this for him! Bless each and every one of you!!
I guess I need to get busy making some binding for this now (PTM do you have any 2.5" strips I can use for the binding??) Next up is finishing the sail boat quilt.
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and all is right in Mama Spark's World today = )
