i am a HUGE dork and left your lovely card at home so had to use a post office label to let you know who was sending. anyhow... the idea behind the quilt comes from my favorite childrens book the Boxcar Children. i **ADORED** this book as a child(and as an adult)! the children in the story go scavenging at a dump to find utensils, cups, plates, etc and then put all of it up on a little shelf in the boxcar. here is my rendition... nothing is chipped per say but there is lots of wonkiness and NON-matchy stuff here. this is by far my most favorite thing i have ever made (besides the two moosentwits). i hope you love it as much as i did making it. happy cooking!
*** a lot of the paper pieced patterns come from: cups and saucers
