Good Fortune Mystery Monday Link-up , Mail Surprise

This was the first year I participated in Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mystery which this year was called Good Fortune.   The pattern can now be purchased as a digital pattern at the Quiltville store here.

I had my top completed within a week of the reveal in early January and decided to donate my top to the Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project.  You can find out more about that here at From My Carolina Home.  I contacted Carole and she hooked me up with a longarmer who graciously quilted my quilt.

I received a picture of the finished quilt this week, and was so happy to see it quilted, and on its way to being donated to one of the hurricane victims.  Irene did a lovely quilting with my top, and her friend the binding.  I really appreciate the time and effort she spent finishing up my top.  




I will be linking up with the Quiltville Mystery Monday Link-Up

I went out to the mail this afternoon and found a squishy filled with Island Batik widths of fabric  that I won from Wednesday Wait Loss at the Inquiring Quilter.  Thanks so much Jennifer, I really appreciate it.  It is so exciting to get squishies in the mail.



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow that is really impressive that you donated such a time consuming quilt! Most people use cheap fabric and/or quick techniques. It is gorgeous!

I love that it was your first BH mystery quilt and you gave it to an unknown person in need! It is beautiful. Job well done.

Wow!! I'm not sure that I could have given that quilt away. What a wonderful gift someone will be receiving!
