To Gale Lavers, With Thanks!


Dear Gale,

I have been remiss in being able to contact you! Your parcel arrived with this ADORABLE Quilt Angel, and tho I have your town as Port Saunders, Newfoundland I don't have a return address or an email address to find you and thank you properly!

I love this little angel so much! The bright colors and the scrappy patches make me smile. She is on the wall of my studio, keeping watch over everyone that enters here. I've named her Gale after you!

Thanks so much for thinking of me and brightening my life in the way you have!

My best to you!

I LOVE that!!!!!! that is the sweetest thing I have seen in awhile, and it is the perfect gift for you!! You are my quilt angel, you have given me so much - ideas to share, quilts that I would love to make, insperation to try something new - this is such a perfect gift for you Bonnie!!! I love it!!!

And if Gale would let you know if it's her pattern, or where we could find out how to make one, I would love to give this gift to more of the people who have filled my quiting world with love. She is such a perfect gift! I am so glad you showed us what you had gotten. And if Gale wants you to have the one and only - I completly agree with that to, 'cause there is only one of you!!

If you ever have a chance to visit Newfoundland, it's such a beautiful and friendly place. I attended the Quilt Canada Conference last year and I was thrilled with my stay. I love this cheery little wallhanging. I'm sure you'll smile every time you look at her.

This is such a lovely quilt! So perfect for spring! It is so lovely that she was given to you. All of us out here in blogland get so much inspiration and encouragement from you and it is just so happy for us to see this for you!

Hugs - Shari

Hi I just found your blog and I love the info you give us. I'm a new quilter and I am always tying to learn how different people do things and as you said we all pick whats good for ourself.
I collect angels and would like to know like alot of other quilters is where can we get the pattern.
If you Albeeta is flat you should see Ontario the lagest hill is our express way for miles and miles.
Thanks for all the great info.

I love this wall hanging! Bonnie, have you heard from Gale as to where this pattern came from? Or if she made it herself? I have the perfect empty space on my sewing wall for this to hang and I have the perfect friend to give it to.... I will keep watching to see if you post this information.
