Every so often I receive an email with a link to a story that really warms my heart.
This one ties directly into the LABEL LABEL LABEL post that I wrote a couple of weeks ago.
You are a new quilter.
You are asked to participate in a round robin with more experienced quilters, and with trepidation ((And lots of encouraging skilled teachers at your side…)) You begin a journey that will increase your confidence and abilities while it binds friendships that last a life time.
Now imagine that lifetime ending all too soon….and for some reason your uncompleted top ends up outside of your circle of quilt friends, in a thrift shop….
Where does the story of this quilt go from here?
Terry sent me the following email along with her link:
Hi Bonnie,Please click Terry’s link above and find out what happens with this story. It really touched my heart, and it certainly made me rethink what info I need to include on labels ---
Thanks for a wonderful mystery quilt with Celtic Solstice. Mine is still a work-in-progress. I had to get back to work quilting customer quilts.
I helped a quilty friend discover a home for a lost quilt top. Its fun that we can use the internet to investigate and help others.
Thought you might enjoy the story: http://quiltcrazie.blogspot.com/2014/02/tuesday-tip-lost-quilt-found-home.html
Thank you for all you do for us.
Yours in quilting,
After reading Terry’s story, won’t you come back here and leave me a comment on what you think about it?
I’d love to know your thoughts!

This is also an “almost” 24 hour advance notice of Quilt-Cam tomorrow night!
I’ve got samples to stitch for my taping of The Quilt Show, and I’m running out of time so that’s what I’ll be working on tomorrow --- some string blocks and half square triangle units for Jamestown Landing.
I hope you’ll join me at 9pm EST tomorrow night, Thurs Feb 6, 2014.
Have a great evening, Everyone!
