Ila’s Choice

Months and months ago . . maybe over a year ago, I did a giveaway and the prize was one of my quilts.  A reader, Ila, won the quilt.  At the time, most everything was packed so I wrote her that I would get back with her “soon”.

Then we moved and had to have the sewing room built and things were still packed. Then there was the retreat in February and then one thing after another and I told myself that I was not going to let 2012 end without me getting a quilt to Ila.

Yesterday I grabbed a few quilts and sent pictures to Ila to choose which one she wanted.

Option #1:

This one is smaller, bright and batiks.  I couldn’t measure them before sending her pictures because I had been out helping Vince and had paint on my hands.  Add more points for me in that “good wife” competition!  🙂

This one is a little larger than the first one . . probably twin size.

Ila’s Choice

This quilt is in my first book, Nine Patch Extravaganza.  Ila has the book and said she actually has this quilt marked to make some day so this is the one she chose.  Today I will get it boxed up, and get it in the mail to her.  I’m thankful that Ila is a patient lady and I’m sorry I took so long to get this too her but at least it’s a quilt she will like and now she will have one and will not have to make it herself.

    It’s nice to know someone else is slow at getting things in the mail. I have quilts for my nephew’s graduation (in June) and a wedding for a Brother-in-law ( in August) all they need are labels! My goal is to get them sent by the end of the year.I hope I manager to get then done soon!

    Mailing stuff is always a challenge for me too and I’ve got two packages that I must get to the post today. Giveaways are such fun. Especially when it’s a Judy L quilt.

    I don’t know why, but I dread mailing things. I’d rather scrub toilets, change the sheets, any other yucky task than mail something… or get it ready to mail, that’s the bad part!

    I’ll take the top one! LOL.
    You are so kind and generous to give away one of your famous quilts, Judy! I bet Ila will love it. I can just imagine how happy she will be to cuddle up underneath it on a cold winter night – or afternoon, or morning!
    I love that she already had that quilt marked to make. SO perfect!

    I am so glad to hear that I’m not the only one who is a tad bit slow! I STILL have my son and daughter in law’s quilt I made as a wedding gift for them in September! And I REALLY want to get it DONE this year! I also have something for my daughter, a Thanksgiving turkey centerpiece for my son, and a gift for a friend – ALL overdue and needing to get DONE this September!!!@!!
