Last week I posted about receiving blocks in the mail and today I want to tell you about a wonderful email that I received.
But first….the backstory…..
Back in January, I released my very first quilt pattern….. “Crumbs for the Geese”
I did not put it out for sale but rather, it would be a gift for anyone who signed up for my newsletter.
Now, this was the first time that I had ever written a pattern and I was a bit concerned that I hadn’t done a good job. I think that we all know THAT feeling!!
Over the past 10 months, a bunch of people had downloaded the pattern but, as far as I knew, no one had attempted the quilt.
BUT, last week I received an email from Charmaine with this photo attached…..
Didn’t she do a great job!!!
She told me that it will be donated to the Calgary Child Advocacy Center to give a young person some comfort. That makes it even better!!
As we corresponded further, she told me that she used scraps of fabric that were given to her from various sources and then used a specialty ruler to cut out the flying geese.
She also mentioned that she made the flying geese “wings” larger than needed and then used “Deb Tucker’s Wing-Clipper” ruler to trim the geese down accurately.
Like most of us quilters, she does love gadgets that help her be precise!!
Interestingly, later that same day, a friend wrote and asked if I had ever used any of the Deb Tucker rulers?
Well, that can’t be a coincidence!!
So, I have now ordered the Wing-Clipper and am looking forward to trying it soon. Stay tuned for a review of this tool.
Thank you Charmaine for your sweet encouragement!!!
