Two more things...

Duh..I was so excited to get my gift, I forgot to mention that I also finished one of my Mystery #11 tops.

I will get a better picture later when I have my trusty quilt holders home to help me. I really like the way this one turned out. I don't think I am going to add borders to it. It is already really big (can't remember the dimensions) and I think a nice dark binding will do the trick.
My other big thing I forgot to mention is that I am meeting up with Shellie, a pal from both the Tran-Quilt-ity yahoo group and a fellow block swapper in Marie Bostwick's "A Quilted Christmas" swap. I hosted that, and I got to meet Shellie for the first time last weekend when she delivered her blocks to me. This weekend, I get to pass all the blocks back to Shellie. I will post pics of the blocks later. It was amazing how tuned in to each other we all were..the blocks fit together PERFECTLY!!


  1. That looks great!!! I'm so excited to see how all of your blocks turned out!!

  2. Love the quilt. A dark binding will really set it off

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  3. This is a beautiful quilt! Can you please share where this pattern came from? Thank you!

    This was one of Marge Gordon's mystery quilts. If you click the link on the left for the Mysteries for Relay, it will take you to her site and tell you all about it!
