Pay It Forward from Jackie

When I came back from my parents house, there was a package waiting for me at our post office.... And it was my package from Jackie!!!
I was so excited I could hardly wait until I came back home to open it :)

And.....it is AMAZING!! Jackie sent me a wonderful quilt! It is so beautiful, I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love it!
She also sent me some great green fabric, yellow giant ric-rac, a glass-pin and....um...some chocolate, but that's gone already :(
The quilting is an awesome paisley and flowers pattern, it is so full of detail, I have tried to get some shots of it here, but I am afraid my camera is not really doing it justice.... Here's part of the back of the quilt, she pieced the back -it's so beautiful!
This is the front of my new favourite quilt, there are some great fabrics in here! And look at the colors, so fresh and summer-y.
Thank you so much Jackie! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

If you would like to sign up to receive a handmade gift from me within a year, let me know in the comments :) And let me assure you, even if I am not a very frequent blogger these days, I am definately not gone. I have a HUGE paper to hand in May 29th (ack! that's pretty soon), and after that, I'll be back to normal :)

Anyway, back to the PIF...if you want to play, let me know. I'll have a year to send you a special handmade present, you will then blog about the PIF and have 3 people sign up :)

so....come on....sign up!!

Oh man! Now I wish I would have signed up for Jackie's PIF! But trouble is.. it would take me all year just to make one thing, let alone three! That quilt is a gorgeous one though. Jackie is an expert!

Good luck on your paper. I know you are cracking down. You can do it!
