I wanted to let you know that the quilt arrived this afternoon and it is magnificent! You were right, it is so much more impressive in person. The thought and work that went into making this beautiful quilt is truly amazing. What a talented group! Every stitch is perfect - even the back is simply gorgeous! Each time I look at it I see something new. I don't think I can adequately express how lucky and honored I feel to have this quilt in my home. I love the stitching along the side - "It Takes a Village to Raise an Airedale".
Thank you for the careful and thoughtful packing - it traveled beautifully.
I have attached a few photos. I had hoped that Walter, Wilma and Sid would pose with me and the quilt as I unfolded it but I'm sure you know how that turned out. Since it wasn't their idea - not a chance. I ended up with quilt spread across me and they played bitey face behind me. My husband did volunteer to hold the quilt in the last photo so all of it can be seen.
Thank you again, I still can't believe I won!
Yes Lori, please share with the Bee! I want each of them to know how much I love the quilt. I've enjoyed reading the bios as I study each block. I've read them before but it's so much more personal when you have the quilt in front of you. What a labor of love this was! I can't help but smile every time I look at it.
