Hi Debbie, It took me long enough to let you know the quilt arrived safely and is simply beautiful!
I held onto it to take to my monthly quilt guild meeting last night and wow, did it impress the ladies.
After the meeting a long arm quilter came over to ask to see the stitching up close, and she was just blown away! She had a dozen questions of which I could not answer, but she told me to please pass along the fact your work is stunning! She examined every little piece, the differences in the stitches, the color contrast on the back and just kept exclaiming how gorgeous it was.
Then, a member who is a licensed appraiser and historian joined in and seconded everything.
I told them your stitching salvaged my design flaws and I was truly touched when they said that I needed to see it from a distance, that it was beautiful.Well, I'll accept that! But you made it so.
They were also intrigued by the binding.
So, now it's being packed and sent to Wisconsin, Yippee!
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart, you are a treasure! Ann
PS: They "suggested" I not spread your name around or I may never get in your queue again!!!
