    What wonderful donors you have to supply these lovely treats. For myself I am just pleased to see Alissa Haight Carlton’s awesome collection up close. I have been so looking forward to it but none has arrived in New Zealand so probably wont now till March/April. Yes we always seem to be last in the world but don’t forget us please. We love Modern Quilts as much as you.
    Cheers for a safe and happy holiday season.

    Please don’t stare
    Because she has
    Much facial hair!
