Elaine's Quilt Project & Belated Birthday!

Thank you to all my stitching and blogging friends who so generously answered my call to give to Elaine's Quilt. I am so grateful, and I know Elaine will be moved to have this lap quilt made just for her from friends around the world when she has to go for chemo...and when she needs warmth in her remaining days.

You each are so kind and thoughtful. I can't tell you how much this means.

I've posted above some of the quilt (6 1/2") pieces that are mine, that I'll be using for Elaine's Quilt. Just wanted to give you an idea of the color palette I'm looking at for the moment. I'm sure all the squares will fit together perfectly well....I'll make sure they do.

Please know that if you want to join us in the Elaine's Quilt Project, you can look below at my recent blogs to get more information.


Look!!! Patti (Tapestry of Dreams) spoiled me and surprised me this week with a belated birthday present! She saw that I loved the Primoriginal pieces on Etsy, and sent this darling bracelet and little magnet for my needle. I was so delighted to receive this little surprise. It really caught me off guard and just when I could use a boost! Thank you soooo much, Queenie.

Psst....those who know me, know I'm a miserable photographer....so please bear with the picture! :[

Again, thank you to those of you who are working on Elaine's Quilt with me. For any of you who wonder who the contributors are at the moment, please look in the comments for the Quilt information blogs below. :]

Love and hugs,
Deb

Hi hon
Sent you off a square the first part of the week. Goodness knows how long it will take! BTW, the square I sent without knowing before hand is blue.
Hope it fits with the others.
Lovely gift you got there. Good things happen to good people.

I'm sorry, with the craziness with the kids, I haven't yet sent my square off. Am I going to be too late?

I sent my square off to you -- hope you get it! And I hope it fits in with what you have so far too. I love the fabrics you're showing there! Patti is so sweet to send you that giftie too!

Great b-day gift! The quilt will be just gorgeous and I'm sure your friend will love it.

Hi Mini Me, So sory I haven't sent your square off yet but I will I promise. And you are very very welcome for your belated (very) birthday present. I didn't want to get you anything stitchy and watch out next month for the other non-stitch present which will be the last of your birthday present. Lots and lots of love Queenie xxxx
