i couldn't help but think about a time that seems so long ago...
we (margi and i) bought this kit for the 'may day' quilt probably 8 years ago.
and as i quilted it i remembered the fabrics and the fabric lines and some good times at the quilt shop.
mary and kelly owned the shop then. we had great times working, quilting, decorating and taking classes together.
mary has sinced past away and kelly lives in seattle with her dad and brother. i haven't talked to her in years.
and as i quilted over the pieces, i remembered the fabrics and some that were kelly's favorites like the green in the bottom left corner. my favorites were the red/pink in the top corners and the stripe that runs just below the block. i remember mary and kelly picking the fabrics out and all of us putting the kits together before class. we just had to have this kit and just like so many other kits that we had to have, they are still sitting on a shelf in my sewing room.
i'll have to take them out, one by one, and start working on them. i enjoyed the feelings that it brought back and i was surprised by my emotions as i watched the needle pass through each one.
thanks margi, it was a pleasure!
