I met an Alaskan Quilter – Debbie lives in Anchorage and sent me a pic of her quilt and the most heartwarming message to go with it:
I make charity quilts mainly for a NICU, but occasionally I will get a request to do a special quilt for a family. I thought I was in over my head with a quilt I promised to a family going through a really tough time now in the process of trying to adopt a little boy. I was given a bag of his clothing, and asked to use the pieces in a quilt. I had no clue how I was going to do this and then I remembered I had purchased your book on shortcut quilts.
Oh my gosh! Now I must admit, it wasn’t easy, it required a couple of wine coolers?!! And at times I looked outside to see the beautiful weather, I live in Anchorage too, and thought to myself, ” why did I volunteer to do this!?”
But… I finished it this morning, your instructions were easy to follow and I am so pleased.
