Quilter Kathy eed me this morning to give me a "HEADS UP". Seems The Quilt Rat has a new project and the reason it might be very interesting to me is IT'S MY QUILT THAT SHE IS MAKING!!!

Seriously--in 2005, my "Down the Garden Path" quilt was featured in Quilt Almanac magazine. I was thrilled! I had several other quilts published, but this one is the one I am most proud of.

Jill is making my quilt for her sister out of her sister's husbands shirts. Seems she lost him to cancer and this is a "love quilt". Jill is making her quilt completely from the heart not only using his shirts, but such symbolism as using a rose background for the applique border because her sister's name is Rose. Also other fabrics in the quilt depict her husbands loves and hobbies. You simply MUST go over and take a look at her work.

Thanks you so much, Jill, for chosing my pattern you make such a special and loving work of art for your sister.

Molly...that sounds SO sweet but the Quilt Rat link won't work for me. Can you check it out and let me know if it works for you?

No Molly.........Thank You, for creating this stunning quilt pattern.
I have to say that this is the quilt that got me interested in quilting in the first place.
I am so happy to be able to make this quilt for my sister and I am very happy that you don't mind the "changes" I am making. I just know she will LOVE it.
