All three of the quilts that I put together from blocks received by fabulous CQI and RMCQ members, are going to be judged and exhibited in the Houston Quilt Festival! I am sooooo pleased that we're making a BIG splash in showing what can be done with crazy quilting! VBG!

Then, I received a GORGEOUS bouquet of flowers from a dear friend, Cathy Kizerian to celebrate our success! I HAVE to share them with all of you! They are JUST ...GOAJUS!!! They are sent to commemorate the color of the quilts and breast cancer! AND... they smelll wonderful! Thank you thank you, Cat! I finally have cleared some of the tears of happiness from my eyes enough to post!! To EVERYONE who participated in this project.... YOU ROCK!!! Great job!!! Now....off to sniff the flowers again!

Atta girl, Cathy!
You are such a sweetie, Leslie - you deserve flowers and so much more! I know what an incredible amount of work it took on your part to put these blocks together into the three works of art you have created. Now on to Houston!! lol
Hugs,
Kerry

Leslie,
You should be very proud of the work you (and others) put into these blocks, and especially for the finished quilts. They are beyond lovely!

And what an HONOR to have them touring. How wonderful that they will be admired by so many.

So....what's your next project?
