With Love from San Francisco!

Did you ever get an email where you just could FEEL the sender jumping up and down as they were typing?

It’s infectious!

And with good reason!

I received such an email from Sarah who write with exuberance:

I won a ribbon in the San Francisco Quilter's Guild for my Roll Roll Cotton Boll!  First Place in category "First quilt entered in a show" !!!!
I am so excited I did almost cry and I just hadda tell you!
Thanks again for the mysteries!  I love them so much!!!
:  )


 
I wanted to cry WITH her!
 
Sarah, you have every right to be so proud – your first time entering into a show and you were awarded a BLUE RIBBON for your efforts!  Great going!
 
Sarah’s full quilt:

BEAUTIFUL!

Now you’ve got us ALL jumping up and down WITH YOU!


PS -- if you are new around Quiltville, Roll Roll Cotton Boll was our mystery from a couple of years ago and is featured in my book String Fling.

Wow! This quilt is beautiful!! My daughter Amanda is a terrific writer and whenever she goes out for a sail, I feel like I am there. I cannot wait to visit next month. Maybe I should look Sarah up while in San Fran.

Congratulations to Sarah!!!
Bonnie, I put the binding on my ROll Roll COtton Ball yesterday. I think this one may go up on my wall in my studio!!. Thanks so much for sharing all of your beautiful quilts and patterns. Easy Street is waiting to be quilted so it may go next to ROll Roll Cotton Ball.

Congratulations, Sarah! See what you inspire us to do, Bonnie? I am sure Sarah is only one of many who have gone WAY beyond her comfort zone in planning, sewing and completing a Bonnie-inspired quilt.

Congrats to you and Sarah! I wanted to tell you I was very excited to see your pineapple quilt in person in Bloomington. It's even more impressive in person. I was also excited to see you, but you were talking with other folks and I didn't want to interrupt. Lois
