Hello Linda, I have come across your blog and I am so pleased I did, it is so welcoming and cosy! I really like the quilt you are holding, the colours are gorgeous, what a beautiful garden! I am new to blogging, a passionate quilter, pelase have a look at my blog http://annsquiltingjourney.blogspot.com/ I am from Australia.
You look so peaceful quilting by the water in your yard. Quilting for me is medicinal. It quiets a busy world, life and mind. I have followed you and Jan Patek for years, making and enjoying your patterns! Constancefrom Utah
The basket quilt is so big. Wonderful look. I just love basket quilts.
