Subject: Christmas quilt


Last year on the day after Thanksgiving I wandered into your shop for the first time and loved it. I purchased some beautiful Christmas sale fabric and had no idea what I would do with it. I live close to Springfield MO and belong to a small quilt group.I showed the fabric to my fellow quilters and we decided to use the fabric for a raffle quilt for a find raiser for our Senior Center. Attached is the finished queen size quilt and now I don't want to part with it but will if my name isn't drawn on Dec 6. I just thought you might like to see what we did with the gorgeous fabric from your shop. Hopefully I'll be up that way again and find some more fabric that I just can't live without. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.
