On Halloween I posted a picture of a quilt made for me by my friend Margie. At the time I told you that she had suffered a massive stroke and was fighting for her life. You can read and see the quilt here, it’s gorgeous. What I didn’t tell you is that my dear Margie lost that fight, Halloween night when her family removed her from life support. Needless to say November was a very difficult time for all of us in our friendship group. I can’t begin to tell you have devastated we all are.
Margie’s daughter asked my friendship group, The Wednesday Wacko’s, to go through and disburse all of her sewing things. She wanted us to have whatever we wanted and then donate what was left. Margie, like so many of us, had way too much “stuff” as well as fabric, thread, kits and UFO’s. Several of us took one of her UFO’s to finish for her. This is the one that I’m planning on completing.
I good portion of it is completed and the rest of it is prepped and ready to be hand stitched down. I don’t have the pattern and I’m sure there are still some things missing from the border. If you know what pattern this is, please let me know so that I can finish it properly.
