A BITTER SWEET MESSAGE OF LOVE


I recieved this email this morning and couldn't resist sharing it with you"

My girlfriend made this quilt from a pattern published in the Quilt Almanac several years ago - she became ill in 2007 and died of ovarian cancer in September of 2008. This quilt was her favorite and she cuddled uunder it all the time she went through chemo and while recuperating from her surgeries. I would like to make this quilt as a memory keepsake but cannot find the pattern for purchase or use anywhere. Can you please direct me to a source to buy this pattern?



Thank you for your help.

The quilt she is referring to is one I made in 2005.  It was published in Quilt Almanac Magazine in 2005.  I never published the quilt pattern myself and everytime I hear from someone about it, I know that I should have.  This quilt evolved from a Drunkards path center.  I made the center section using a new method, an easy method, to make Drunkards Path blocks.  After that I just started making rounds and it all just came together.  It is so wonderful when this happens and it all works for you.

Of course having it published was also a wonderful experience.  Seeing my work in print just made my head swell up!! LOL  I had several quilts published during about a years time and I quit submitting them.  I don't know why.


Here is the page and pic in print.  I was so excited about it, but it equally excites me to know that someone loved my quilt enough to want to make it.  And now I know of someone who was comforted in some way by it.  It is a wonderful feeling.  Thanks so much to the lady who loves her friend so much and wants to keep a memory alive so much that she wants to remake the quilt.  I know she will get it done.  I will make sure she gets the pattern.

Oh, Molly....this post put tears in my eyes. I wish I had been a quilter when my mom was dying of breast cancer in 1989....as it would have been very special to make something that would be such comfort to someone who was going through such a tough time.
