    Wow! They are so beautiful! I bet you stood beaming at your quilts once you had time to rest and could stand back and look at them. :)

    Congratulations! They’re beautiful. Wish I could be there in person, but truth be told I should be in Sequim, WA tomorrow for my father’s 92nd birthday (coincidentally) and I’m not doing that either. My looms came and they are also beautiful. Already successfully wove something on the small one. Will email you later about that. Anyway, good luck with the voting— I’ll be thinking good thoughts for you.

    Jennifer …. I have been following your blogging on these quilts and was so interested to see what you would do with them. I was expecting a traditional flower-garden quilt … and it was delightful to see what you did with the motifs. I hope whoever gets these fully appreciates the tradition, the innovation, and the deeper meaning of the entire enterprise.

  9. I have loved watching you put these together, a real labour of love. Now you can sit back and enjoy the satisfaction that completing an epic artwork brings!

    Congratulations. The quilts are beautiful.

  11. vicki says:

    They are gorgeous! This isn’t what I expected, either, but I love what you did with all the blooms. The turquoise and light blues in the centers of some of the flowers are so pretty. Congratulations!

  12. Diane says:

    Congratulations Jennifer! The quilts are beautiful and a real joy to see! A job very well done, indeed!

  13. Congratulations Jennifer! What an accomplishment – the installation looks amazing! I hope someone really understands what these are worth and they raise lots of money for your charity.

    Your quilts are so lovely! Great job!

  15. Traci says:

    I agree with the others. I was expecting a traditional grandmother’s flower garden. This is so different and refreshing. Kudos to you. Hope you raise a lot of money for this great cause.

    It’s an awesome final result – great job. Thanks for an inspiring podcast, it helps to keep me going when the making world gets tough.

  17. Becky says:

    I think your quilts are stunning and articulate. I loved reading about your determination and how hard you pushed to complete these. Congratulations! Your hard work inspired me, but even more importantly, your support of this cause has made me stop and figure out where I can help as well. You have set an outstanding example for your two girls (and your readers too)!

    hi there. congrats on finishing. they look great. i am continually inspired by your no-holds-barred approach to crafting.

    i wondered if there’s a list anywhere of the tie donors?

    thanks, dana

  22. Congrats!!! I feel so relieved for you as I’ve been in project-crunch-why-did-I-start-this-will-I-ever-get-it-done mode before myself!

    They are amazing and gorgeous!

    Wonderfully abstract! Congratulations on all your hard work – it has paid off royally.

  26. AllyB says:

    Jennifer, they are great! Can’t wait to get over there to see them. What a great thing you’re doing for Safe Haven.

  27. Paper Pieces gave us samples to give out to visitors during our quilt show too! What a great company! Your friends/fans can stop out to the Coopersville Farm Museum to see the 162 quilts until 9/30/10 and pick up a sample kit!

  28. JayeL says:

    Like Sandy, I was expecting a traditional grandmother’s flower garden quilt. They are so exceptional! They really weave in the women and men that make up Safe Haven, I think (ties/fabric=men; flower motifs=women). You have done a wonderful job and should be very proud.

  29. stacey says:

    those are awesome art quilts. i love that the ties are upcycled & that the proceeds of the sales will go to such a worthy cause.

    Well done, the quilts looks good. The colour combo of blue and beige was grate.
