Classic Quilts

THANK YOU to everyone who sent me pics of their classic quilts. There are so many beautiful old quilts out there. I didn't grow up among old quilts. As far as I know, no one in my family quilted before me. Well, I'm sure someone did- but nobody kept the quilts to prove it. It sure would be cool to have some family heirlooms. Oh well, at least my kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, etc. will have plenty of mine. ;o)

Normally I draw random winners- but this time I just couldn't. I LOVED so many of the quilts that I saw but one in particular really spoke to me and I just had to pick it as a winner-

This beautiful quilt from Mary on Lake Pulaski. Mary has been a follower since my meager beginnings. I can be sure when I post that Mary will read and always leave a comment. Thanks Mary! When I first saw this quilt I thought 'Sunflowers'. Did anyone else get that? The more I look at it the less I see sunflowers- but that was the first inspiring thought that came to me. funny how that works sometimes, isn't it?

Wanna see what Mary won?

A 'Cherish Nature' Layer cake by Deb Strain. See, I told you it would be fabric.

Shoot me an email Mary with your shipping info. so I can get this out before I head back to the hospital on Thurs. (ugh!) Don't worry all, this time I remembered to pack THREAD! :o)
