Quilt Received!

Julie's quilt arrived at her mailbox in Durango last Saturday...so I can finally show it in all its glory here!  I think it ended up to be about 76 inches square after washing.  

She called me while she was opening it...and cried.  I liked that.  When giving gifts to my sisters...my goal is to make them cry.  {grin} 

She also received the kitty blankets I made way last fall...see them here...2 pillowcases (one is shown on the photo above) and a matching kleenex cozy.  She was very happy, which made me very happy.
