'Lookie What I Got!"

For those that thought I gave MY Secret pal a nice gift... LOOK AT THIS!!!!   Have you ever seen a more stunning 30's quilt?  The black background beautifully showcases every single 30's print.
I think this is a stunning setting as well.  My key learning on this Christmas.... sometimes it really DOES pay to advertise.  Years back at a UFO retreat... friend Hilary was making this pattern for herself.  I was sooooo impressed with it, I know I commented something like "Gosh, I'd love to have a quilt like that... actually I may have said "THAT" quilt."     I received a copy of THAT quilt...I'm so happy and thankful.

 Now, back to wrapping gifts.   Merry Christmas all.  Stay Warm....!
