Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I am still at my family's in Chicagoland so I can't upload any photos yet but I thought I would let you know how the selection came out. The quilts were phenomenal hits! The recipients were unbelieving and once it sunk in that they got to take one home, they dug in with relish.

It is a beautiful snowy night in Southwest Pennsylvania and I am still up. I have been tossing quilts and quilt bags on air dry with a damp towel in the dryer all night (I guess you could call me a fluffer) and I am about half way through the 15.
