Mail call -

Squishy mail - 
My friend - Linda S. - Art in Search
Quilted my daughter's Quarter Log Cabin quilt for me - 

And did an AWESOME JOB!! - ;))

She quilted different motifs in each of the colors - 
BLACK - Straight lines alternating directions every 2-1/2" square - 
CENTERS - Flowers - 

YELLOW - Diamond cross-hatching - 

ORANGE - Ribbon Candy - 

GRAY - Lazy 8's or Wishbones - 

She even sewed on the binding for me - 
That little touch of ORANGE makes it look SO fancy - LOL - 

And just couldn't stop taking photos - 

All my daughter could say was - "WOW!" -
Over and over and over - LOL - 
She LOVED it!! - 
She said that it was EXACTLY what she wanted -
But she didn't know how to explain it - 
And wasn't sure if it could be "done" that way - 
She wanted different "patterns" in the different colors - 
And loved Linda's choices - 
The texture is WONDERFUL -
She LOVES how it feels to the touch - 
I tried to tell her to leave all of that up to Linda - 
And that it would be AWESOME -
But I don't think she believed me - 
I don't know what she was expecting -
But it EXCEEDED her expectations - for sure! - 
I think it's AWESOME -
But I had already told Linda that when she sent me some "sneak peek" photos - 
So I told her again -
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

That is very nice work. I love the idea of different patterns in each color or section. I do that on my notebooks some of the time.
I am sure your daughter will love it for a long time.

I think the best part was the overall textural squishy feel. My stitching is not perfect, but neither am I. Love the binding you made for this quilt.
