1. When Mom first asked if anybody wanted a quilt, she hoped she'd get orders for 10.

2. We have shipped as many Gizzy Quilts as there are Heinz varieties. We're not done yet.

6. Washington and Wisconsin tie for third place

7. There are quilts in: IL, SC, TX, MA, PA, WY, AR, CT, HI, IN, LA, MD, MO, MT, NH, NJ, TN,UT, VA.

8. Most Orders were for single quilts. But there were 6 orders for 2; and multiple orders for 3, 4 and 5 quilts each.

9. Blue Quilts were the most popular by almost 2 to 1.

10. Purple was the second most popular color.

11. In third place, a 4-way tie for: Rainbow, Green, Yellow/Green, and Black/White.

12. Put together, all the Gizzy Quilts Mom made equal 5 bean "Queen Size" quilts. (made in just over 3 months, which is pretty amazing.)

Such beautiful quilts. Put us down for a Christmas quilt right now. Mom loves Christmas and we are telling her we want one for Christmas. I can see why blue is a favorite. That's Tigger's favorite. Mine is red, it looks so good with my black fur. So that is 2, one for Tigger and one for me. We live in Florida, so you will be able to add that state to your list. Have a wonderful day.
Be Blessed,
Samantha & Tigger

Acutally, I'm surprised how close you, Millie, got to Jasmine in this picture. Is she actually mellowing? Or just waiting to pounce?
