What a Beauty!

I just had to share this. You may recall a few posts back that I mentioned donating a quilt for my daughter's fundraiser and how I was sorry I didn't have another quilt ready for her next one. A very generous blogger offered to send a quilt to be donated and it arrived today. With her permission, I wanted to show you what Randy has sent us. It is a beautifully scrappy double 4-patch in a controlled color palette, and mostly batiks. It is a very soothing combination of blues, purples and pinks with splashes of yellow in the narrow border.  I love it. I don't think my photo does it justice. I told Randy that I sat with it over my lap for a while this evening admiring the fabrics and I think we bonded. Wonder what my chances are of winning it?
Thank you so much, Randy. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday!

  4. It was really my pleasure to donate the quilt for Aimee's son's fundraiser. I wish there was more I could do. Keep me in the loop for future fundraisers. I'm always looking for a good charity to receive my quilts!!
