This is from July 13, 2010 (I was waiting to upload photos and forgot!)
I'm sorry if you've read it before, but I have to say....
It really takes SO LITTLE to make me happy.
This came via UPS today when I was leaving Sandy's. I sat on the porch at the Klop's and waited for Stan to cut open the box. Inside the box was the Wagon Wheel Quilt and 3 copies of QUILTMANIA no. 78. Published in France. I'm on page 53!!!
This summer I was mentioned as Sandy's machine quilter in the most recent edition of the lovely French magazine called "Quiltmania"
My famous moment:
The photo the magazine took:
The quilt Sandy made (and I quilted):
layout of directions (metric):
The quilt I made when Sandy and I dreamed up the pattern in Jan of 2009 (the girls climbed to the treehouse to hold it up so I could take a picture of it):
And this is the original that inspired me to make it. That inspired Sandy to make it. That made Kandy design the pattern. That made it a best selling pattern on Sandy's website. That made Moda happy because it sold so much Happy Campers fabric.
I even used the Wagon Wheel quilt as a banner for this blog. HM has the quilt I made on his bed.
I guess a lot of people were happy. All because one lady, a long, long time ago, sometime in the 1860's, decided to make a Wagon Wheel quilt out of her scrap fabrics. Special thanks to The Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, CA for showing an old quilt exhibit that I couldn't resist going to. And thanks to HM for going with me. I love the entire INSPIRATION PROCESS. That is what I am all about.
