Friendly Friday


About a year ago I ran out of wall space. I gave my friend Julie a call and asked if she'd like to hang my sampler quilt in her house for a few months.


"Sure, on one condition," she said.

"What's that?"

"Next year when you come for Quintessential Quilts 2013, you leave me the Fox for a visit."
 

I thought it was a fair exchange. So now that QQ2013 is over (for me), my Quick Brown Fox quilt is  hanging in Julie's house. My sampler, "Letters From Home" is being shipped home to me with my other quilts. Here's a better photo:

Julie has terrific light in her studio.

Visiting Julie also gave me the opportunity to visit my quilt, No Rules for Julie, which I made for her in 2010, and haven't seen since.  It was good to see it "in person" again. I still think it's one of my best quilts.


 It was hanging in the auditorium when I spoke at QQ2013 this past Sunday.

I do love this lending agreement idea, it can produce an entirely new appreciation for each others work! Brilliant!
