"The Rules" - My Quilt From Lynne.

My quilt from Lynne arrived today at last. I was quite good, I collected it from the Post Office and didn't open it till I arrived home! It was wrapped in a red ribbon, I untied it and unfolded and unfolded and unfolded again to be left speechless! All I could say was Oh Lynne! Ohhhhhhhhh!

If you obey the rules you miss out on all the fun! As said by Miss Katherine Hepburn. There I am! I am the mark in an explanation mark!

It is amazing! It is beautiful! It is perfect! It is me!! I love it!!! I love all the straight stitching, I love the colours, the colours are just beautiful.

Tonya Ricucci from LazyGal Quilting fame was "blown away" when she saw pictures of it. I have my smirky happy grin on here as I get to look at this beauty every day now! And I know the perfect spot on the wall where everyone who comes over will see it and say If you obey the rules you miss out on all the fun! Thanks again Lynne, it has been a great swap, I couldn't be happier.

Can you see me smiling ten thousand miles away? I am SO HAPPY you like it.

(Now don't you be sticking any pins in it! I added a nice hanging sleeve for that!)

Lynne
