Thank you, Lori! We'll be leaving 2 weeks from today. I am SO excited that we will have more quilts than last year.

Lori (zfatcat)'s quilt just arrived. It is SO cute - lime green and hot pink, with the cutest fabric with leaping frogs and flowers!! It will be a big comfort to some child at the shelter in Paducah, I'm sure!
Thank you so much, Lori!! I can hardly wait to call Merryman House to ask them to come for these quilts.

My DH is working on some 'computer problems' and when he is done, he says he will have an extra USB port (whatever that is!) so he can put it on my computer, so I can be back in the photo business. I hope it works out, so I can post photos of all the quilts before they arrive at their new home.

I know it will find a good home. I took pictures before I sent it. My computer is out for repair, but I will post pictures when I get it back. Lori

It IS a Tossed Nine Patch - and I didn't even realize it until I saw the photo! I guess I'd never seen one more 'planned' - the ones I've made were with Charm Squares, so they looked totally different.

I'll be leaving for Paducah on Tuesday (10th), so I'll look for Homegirl, Gramajojo, and Bland50 with Gavin there!

Thank you ALL so much for helping with this worthwhile project!!

Sidesaddles/Pat - Your BEAUTIFUL quilt arrived today - what a treasure that is! Thank you so much. Some woman will have something to be very happy about in the midst of a turmoil in her life!!

For others: Pat's quilt is a full bed size quilt in browns, creams and reds - sort of a toile look - it's just gorgeous, and will be a real blessing to some woman whose life has been turned upside down!

I am overwhelmed by the generosity of so many of you, and can't thank you enough on behalf of the women and children who are at the Merryman House!

THANK YOU!!
