We received an email this weekend and wanted to share it with all of our readers.
On November 2 we became proud grandparents of our first grandson (2 granddaughters before him). Mid summer I had been diagnosed with breast cancer and had surgery in October, so I had not been able to concentrate on making him a baby quilt. I had pulled piles of fabric from my stash and looked at patterns, but had not been inspired.
I read your blog regularly and visited your shop two years ago while visiting my sister in Minnesota. Fast forward to now. March 7, more surgery and 3 days in the hospital. After getting settled in back at home, I checked your blog and saw the cutest graphic quilt posted on March 7. I had my inspiration. I selected my fabrics and started cutting, sewing, and pressing. Last night I finished a crib size top in patriotic colors. My daughter saw it today and we selected a plaid from my stash for backing with a bold red for binding.
Your post was my inspiration. I certainly give credit to the pattern maker, Moda, and to Mandy for her excellent presentation. I have attached a photo of the quilt top just so you can see that what you do can really motivate your readers and customers every day. Thank you for sharing your life with us.
