Mission Accomplished

I recently wrote in my blog that I had signed up for a Pay It Forward challenge and that I had lost contact info for the person who had signed up for mine. Thanks to the suggestions from blog readers, Sara and I managed to connect again.Here is the PIF gift that I made for Sara...I put it in the mail early Thursday afternoon, and by late Friday afternoon I had an email from Sara telling me that it had already arrived. Can't complain about the post office with this delivery!

This is from a pattern called Charm Party Tote by Penny Sturges that was in the August 2007 issue of McCall's Quilting magazine. I've used this pattern at least five times in the past. Take a look here and here if you want to see the others. The fabric on this one is from a charm pack of Moda's Wildflower Serenade II.

Sara's birthday is today. Go over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday!

I couldn't have asked for better timing on the finish for this one...
