Thank you:

A shocking number of you committed time, effort, and gorgeous (sometimes handspun) yarn to make this unbelievable quilt for me. I can't actually get a camera far enough away from it to take a picture, so Penny and I pieced this montage together for all to see. I don't have names attached to some of the blocks, so please claim your blocks. I want to thank you!

And super huge thanks to Tara Wurster who spearheaded and arranged this whole thing. It is a thing of beauty and I am so thankful I have all of YOU in my life.

(You can see more photos of the blanket on the facebook album page.)
