And for very good reason...I got a wonderful package in the mail on Friday...let me explain....I finished my Cotton Club blocks months ago, had a row put together and then I put it away. I got an e-mail from a friend asking me about the project and I told her where I was and that I had put it away...I was dreading doing those big mitered borders...now I know how to do them, taught how to do them when I had my shop...just don't like to do them...not even a little bit. I have this fear that I'm going to have a wonderful quilt with an awful border because I don't get it right...well, you'll never believe the response I got from my friend. She said "When you finish putting the quilt together, you can send it to me and I'll do the border for you. I love to do mitered borders, they're lots of fun." I couldn't believe it...I was just thrilled...so I got it finished, boxed it up and sent it off to her...in no time at all it was back at my house...so here it is...it's a big one...too big for Mr. Quilt Holder to hold it up, so I put it on the floor in the foyer and went upstairs and took the picture over the railing...please ignore the wrinkles...Howie needed to check it out as I was heading up the stairs...walked all over it...but by the time I got to the top to take the picture he was no where to be seen. I'm as happy as I can be...and so grateful to my friend...Thank you! Thank you! Yes, I'm still grinning!
Oh I wanted to let you know that the Lemon Almond bread, that I mentioned in my last blogpost, was out of this world. Our friends loved it and so did we! It's a keeper!
