Back in mid April MLQ received an email from a Canadian quilter living in Colorado. Attached to the email was a picture of this quilt. It popped up on the internet and Joanie fell in love with it. She wanted the pattern so she could make it for her sister living in Ontario. I made this quilt from a Lavender Hutt Designs pattern in 2010. It is no longer available. Using EQ7 I was able to give her the size of the blocks and the basics of how to assemble it. We emailed back and forth as more instructions were needed.
I love the geese in the corners. Joanie’s sister has received it and is thrilled to own this quilt. She has it hanging in the pro shop of her golf course and fields questions about it all day long. Love a red & white quilt!
As the emails continued we learned a lot about each other. When she isn’t working she is volunteering her time for others.
Click on the pictures for a larger view of the quilts/bears. Corresponding with Joanie brings back memories of the days when “Pen Pals” were so cool. Email is awesome and so is snail mail! Might be time for another postcard exchange!!
Happy Quilting…Valerie Raye
