How can I remember winter when it's not even cold yet?

Yikes! I'd forgotten about this little quilt I made for the Wintertime mini quilt swap.
I was late getting it into the post office 'cos I thought I was better at stitching than I actually am. I undid so much of it until I realised my second attempt wasn't any better. Eventually Carla received it in Tucson, Arizona. (I always want to break into song right about now...1949). She was so kind with her comments about it. I know it's a bit wonky...but it is finished. Hooray.

Oh Sue, I'd be very happy with wonky if that arrived in my mail box ;o)
Looks wonderful.

Hi Sue
I love your project! It is the kind that just makes you happy , looking at it. I would call it a piece of ART.

The whole design lends itself to being wonky anyway. Anyone would be glad to receive, it is lovely.
