I know...I know....I shouldn't have opened it so soon. How could a girl not open a big box that arrives in the mail. This box would have been sitting in the corner, staring at me, taunting me for 2 weeks...open me...open me. Early birthday gifts are just as much fun as late ones. I had no idea when I saw this little quilt in progress on Mary's blog that it would be coming to live with me, it certainly is a treat to see it show up at my door. Mary knew how much I loved her "chicken wire" basket and sent one for me to display my collection of little quilts. Can you see those perfect squares, I think they are 1/2" finished (the gold is not that bright, it's more mutted than the picture shows) Mary's quilting puts mine to shame, she does wonderful impeccable quilting....Thanks so much Mary I love this sweet little quilt and basket.
My red and green quilt is all wonderfully quilted by my dear friend Lauren and ready for me to hand sew the binding. Next will be washing to get that warm cozy crinkled look that I just love to see when a quilt is all completed....ohhh I can't wait to get it in the washing machine and show you again.
