Julie sent pretty much of the border fabric, probably almost enough for a back; I'll add some muslin and, viola! Julie sent enough of the putty-color alphabet fabric that I can make the binding. After my next trip to Burkholders where I'll pick up the batt, I'll decide whether to tie it or pay Mary Ellen to machine it.
Blogless Kathy B sent me blocks and backing for two quilts; I'm thinking I'll try to start one of them next. I've cut about a half bazillion Dresden Plate blades and have been stitching their ends as a leader-ender.
I foresee a most satisfying Spring Break!
Cross Country Quilters is ready to go home to its new owner, so if Lynda H-O will email me her mailing address, I'll send it off on Monday afternoon! The book is a library discard and has obviously been read by many a quilter. Some of the pages are loose and the binding is weak, but every bit of the story is intact. Come on, Lynda, let me hear from you!
