Any time I have an article in a magazine, I’m torn about whether I should mention it here. It’s kinda like tooting my own horn and I sometimes feel bad about doing that but . . you’ll notice it isn’t stopping me!
Like the quilt I posted earlier today, I started the quilt and when I showed the EQ drawing of the quilt to Vicky, immediately she remembered the perfect strawberry fabric in her stash and she wanted to make the quilt. I gave her little more than a “cheat sheet” and she made the quilt, and sent it to me to quilt. I quilted it and sent it back to Vicky. Then I talked her into entering it in the Nashville AQS Expo maybe in 2005 or 2006 . . can’t remember. So, she sent it back to me. After the show, I think it was sent straight back to Vicky. Then when we decided to submit it to American Quilter, Vicky had to send it back to me again so I could get it to Paducah to be photographed. This quilt was a Christmas gift for Vicky’s niece and she finally got it, but about 3 years late!
Thanks Vicky for allowing me to use your quilt. And you know what? The top I started way back before I ever showed this design to Vicky . . the blocks aren’t even finished! One day I will finish it . . some day!
