Hi all -  I want to thank you all for the lovely quilt you made for me.  I love it - it is just perfect.  It always amazes me how a quilt can be so beautiful when all put together, especially one that is made up of 30 different blocks, from different quilters, totally different patterns and the only common denominator, blue and white and the size.. It is truly awesome.

 Special thanks to Karla for getting this started and finishing the quilt and quilting.  I will so enjoy showing this off to friends and family in the days to come. Also special thanks to Donna  for the embroidered center block which just ties it all together.

I plan to put a label on the back, telling the story of why the quilt was made, and the names of the makers.  I plan to list the names, row by row and the state from where the quilter lives.

So once again, I thank each and every one that contributed to this wonderful quilt.  I feel very loved when I wrap up in it.  Thanks for all the support you have given me.

Marge P

Marge,

It was a real pleasure for me to be able to participate, at least i will always know that a part of me has made it to your side of the pond. It looks stunning the others did fantastic work, by the way does this mean I can say that one of my quilts has been finished (if i say quilt block quietly under my breath).

Lots of love and hugs coming your way.

lots of love

Francesxx

Marge,

I enjoyed making the block for you and am glad you like your quilt.  There were lots of thoughts and prayers included in the blocks.  So glad you're feeling better :)

Marge, you truly deserve the quilt.  You are such a strong woman who has gone through so much.  Although some days I was frustrated by the quilting, I truly enjoyed putting it together for you.  And I really enjoyed the time we were able to spend together in Oregon.

Marge P, I hope you will take it in with you at Wenatchee this week.  

When you are all cozy, snuggled under that quilt,  you can imagine all of us giving you hugs while you are going through those nasty treatment(s).  We'll be right there with you...

T's & P's,

 Winthrop, WA

Marge - you are so welcome and now one day I hope to meet you in person. It touches my heart and brings tears when I think of 30 ladies coming together to create a quilt for some someone they never even met.  Gosh, we need to get QCA going in more places in the world, maybe we could end all the wars!  Keep getting stronger so that can happen, maybe in 2014?

You're welcome Marge.  Making that quilt block was a labor of love for a fellow quilter.   Hope to meet you in person next year in Oregon.

The group did an awesome job with the blocks, horray for Karla did all the final assembly and the quilting. I believe she did a bang up job. Just beautiful, and BIG too. lol enjoy it Marge P. I do hope you are healing well, and that you continue rehabbing under the warm hugs that the quilt will bring.

It was pleasure to be able to take a small part in the making of your quilt. Even though we've not met in person I feel as if I know you through your posts.

Thanks all for the nice replies - they really mean alot.

Donna - I am able to take the quilt in with me tomorrow when I have the monthly Zometa infusion in Wenatchee.  I know all the nurses would love to see it.  However, when it comes to the radiation, it can't go in with me.  I don't know how much any of you know about radiation treatments, but it actually takes longer to get you situated correctly on the table than it does to actually do the radiation.  That is why it is so frustrating to have to spend almost 2 hours driving each way and the procedure takes just a few minutes.  I guess that is what we get for living in the boonies.  However, we love our boonies so what is a person to do?? :-)
