Congratulations (and thank you) to Paintnut for her winning bid of $1501.   Please be sure to show us a picture of where this beautiful quilt finally settles after it's interesting journey over the past week.

HEGPS is very grateful to Fol-di-rol for creating and donating this gorgeous quilt.

Many, many thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement - not to mention all the art work and entertainment with the quilt travels here, there and everywhere. 

Needless to say, I am thrilled that the quilt is going to Paint - one of our own, who donates so much time and expertise to all of us.  The "Eagles on the Shore" will be very happy in their new territory.

Also I need to acknowledge Nancy's contribution of many of the bird print fabrics which were part of the inspiration for this quilt.   Thanks Nancy, this is the first time I ever heard a quilter say she had too much fabric and was glad to part with some of it! :mhihi  There is probably still enough for a couple more quilts (but not quite yet).

Congrats to Paintnut on her winning bid!  What a treasure to have!  This was very exciting for everyone  :ecsmile

Thank you again Foldi for your generous contributions both with this quilt and all your prior efforts too!  (Nancy too, for her birdie material)


That quilt has been EVERYWHERE!  Foldi sure better put a tracking number on it when it ships...because we just never know!   :eclol  After all.....Mel lives somewhere between Foldi and Paints house!  Pirates everywhere!  :ecwink

What fun! These posts have been amazingly creative (how DO you do that??), confoundingly confusing (where IS that thing??), and utterly hilarious (are you serious??). Thanks all who shared their talents and congratulations to Paint. So happy you will have Foldi's quilt! :nod2

I have a LOT MORE fabric!

(I used to make quilts, until I discovered Hornby.  I still have dreams...  but will give Foldi more fabric if she wants it!)

Rarely have I been so entertained and delighted by the creativity and generosity of heart from so many - Paint who won, Foldi who created, Nancy who donated, travel artists who created the tour, and all the generous souls who bid as high as they were able.  No wonder my heart is in this nest and these nesters.
