So many of the quilts I showed had a connection with my long time friend (and machine quilter- that came later) I thought I'd do a post about our friendship.
We met online through a group called Interquilt in 1997. That was the olden days of mirc chatrooms and online lists. We chatted online, we chatted on the phone and then Interquilt was doing a live get together and I was going! Kathy and her husband picked me up at the airport and that was the start of a long and quilty friendship.
I attended her quilt group and they did an impromptu show and tell for me.
Kathy was hand quilting this pickle dish with 1/4" lines!
|To Sisters through Ohio|
We've done some amazing road trips!
Pretended we were on the commercial for Rice- A Roni!
And made more quilts together:
|Mystery Quilt class at Sisters Quilt Show|
|Road to Paducah (my first trip to Kentucky)|
|This is the one I made her|
|Obviously I needed to add one more border. I made this ocean waves as a swap for quilting too.|
January 2013 was my last trip to see Kathy and as you can see the weather wasn't favorable for traveling far, so we sewed a lot.
She has had knee replacement and is on the mend. I'm hoping she'll be up for another road trip soon! I think we are overdue. Wow! 18 years has flown by!
