A Time For Friendship


Sometimes you finish a quilt, and it tells you where it wants to go. The Grand Prismatic wanted to live with Val in Nova Scotia.  I "met" Val about 2-1/2 years ago when she sent me the most incredible letter thanking me for inspiring her to get creative in her quiltmaking.  She has since gone on to make this stunning beauty. I enjoy her risk-taking and her irreverence. She's been having a rough go lately, and I felt she needed a hug, so I stuffed the quilt in a box and sent it on.

It's the Holiday Season, and it's important to cherish and be thankful for the ones we love. Sometimes a quilt is the next best thing if you live faraway.

I've added a page to the blog. It's called Quilts and their Owners, and the link at the top of this blog. Many of my quilts are arty quilts that aren't meant to be used, but this group of quilts is definitely part of the "wrap me up and feel the love" variety.  Enjoy.

I love it! A gifted quilt to someone you inspired to quilt must have thrilled her. It was a thoughtful and generous gesture.
Merry Christmas. You ARE Christmas.
xx, Carol

You are right. Quilts tell me where they should go. I make comfort quilts and when I get a request, I always know which one to send. When I make it, I have no idea, but later on, I know where it has to go. Val looks really tickled with the quilt.

I understand. The gift everyone shared with me last month helped my psyche tremendously. Our quilts touch others in a most unusual way, and I love that. Hey, Val......love your quilt, my friend!
