Oh My!


Yesterday the mail lady delivered a box to my house. When I saw it later I wondered what the heck it was because I had not ordered anything. When I opened it inside a large ziploc bag I saw a quilt. My first thought was "Someone made a mistake and sent me something they should have sent to someone else!" Then I looked closer and gasped! It was for me!! The most adorable signature quilt was made for me!! I am so touched! I forgot to take a photo of the back but the label says "Thank you Lori we love your quilt alongs- 2011.
How sweet is that?! They also sent charms that matched their signature squares.
Thank you seems so inadequate, but what more can say. From the bottom of my heart thank you so much!

Cheddar Cheese and Crackers

  1. LOL!! You are most welcome Lori! It was a group effort and mostly Karen did all the work of piecing, quilting, binding etc. I think she did a wonderful job. And the backing was from Lizzy!

    So happy it's now with you as a token of our appreciation and now it's my turn to say thank YOU!

  17. Every one of my little quilt-along-with-Lori beauties was great fun to make, and I think of you and your generosity every time I look at them or share their story with someone.

    Keeping a secret is SO hard, but we did it, and Karen did a wonderful job putting our blocks together into our little thank you gift--a gift for a very deserving lady.
