Will Quilt for Musical Instruments

Or so it seems !

I recently received a mystery package in the mail . . . . quite an oddly shaped package, lots of brown wrapping paper, lots and lots of tape. . .lots of work to UNwrap it. . . . . . . .

It came from my friend Jenny in Arizona. Pretty creative use of boxes there Jenny, how many boxes and rolls of tape did it take to wrap this up ?

Underneath all the paper and boxes were a bolt of fabric and a canvas case . . . . . ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

And inside the case was a beautiful log cabin quilt top and wrapped inside the quilt top, was a beautiful Mountain Dulcimer !
What a fun package to receive in the mail and open !
I am excited to quilt up your quilt for you Jenny, and hope you will be as happy with the results as I am with the dulcimer ! and. . . Jenny said to use the BOLT of fabric for the back, and donate the REMAINDER to Quilts of Valor ! Thank You Jenny ! That fabric should make several backs for Quilts of Valor quilts ! What a generous donation !
By the way, did you all know that MAY is BLUEGRASS MONTH ?

What a very creative way to barter services! Do you play the dulcimer yourself? I haven't been to your site much, so don't know you that well. I usually pop on over if I read something that catches my eye in the quilters blog listings.

What a wonderful exchange!

wow, what a wonderful barter. the shipping alone must have cost the earth! the first image looks like a casket :) but then I'm reading a mystery about mummies so that is just where my mind went.

all the best, Sharyn/KalamaQuilts
