A Finished Swap Block & Fun Mail!

Well I finally finished the tulip block I've been hand appliqueing for a theme applique swap. This pot of tulips will be sent out on Monday, I'm so glad to have it finished finally!

And the last couple days have brought me some fun mail!! I got my round robin back from the Feedsack Friends group! It looks fantastic!! I am thrilled with it and I wouldn't change a thing!! Thanks you to all of you ladies that worked on it!!


And today I received my final gift box from my Secret Quilter on the MQR Forum and found out that my Secret Quilter was the ever sneaky Gayle McKay. SHe really had me going over the last 6 months! She went as far as to send me a secret email telling me that Gayle had offered to send a package out to me from her. Thank you soooo much Gayle....You have been AWESOME and I just love everything you've sent me!! Here's the latest package which includes 2 lovely pewter trays with quilt block designs stamped into them and a fabric panel that I have been eyeing for awhile (I'm on a fabric diet or it would have already been mine LOL) and some coordinating fabrics. This will become a wallhanging for my studio sometime soon :) You are the best Gayle!!!

It was so fun for me Beth. Those "trays" are really coasters for your hot or cold drink of choice. Made locally by real artisans. If you come visit, we will go see them work!

The quilt is pretty, but I like those tulips best. Gorgeous!

Your tulip block looks great, I really like it. I have never participated in a round robin, but I think I would really like to sometime. Your top turned out beautiful.

I love your Round Robin. I confess I didn't like 30's repros when I first started quilting, they are beginning to grow on me.

Your tulips are gorgeous. They are my favorite flower.

Glad your RR is back and that you are happy with it. I tried to get Teresa's done before Becky finished yours. Dang!

Your tulips look great! Who is the lucky recipient of those?

Let Kathie know the coasters are available here:

then search for quilt if she wants quilt coasters. or coaster if she wants to see all the pages of choices of animals, flowers, scenes, etc.
