The ‘Sketchbook keeping for textile artists’ sure got me
started! Our relatives had just pulled
into our driveway with their new camper in tow, and I had picked up the
June/July copy of Quilting Arts.
I had wanted to begin creating a collection of “small”
quilts and this opportunity was ripe for the picking.
Our relatives were travelling for another few weeks after
they left our home, all while the Stanley Cup playoffs were taking place. Being die-hard Chicago Blackhawk fans, I
texted them as they were in South Dakota asking what they had named their new
camper. They replied – “After they win
tonight, it will be named ‘Stanley’ “. I
had to add the Blackhawks logo to the project and get it shipped to them as
soon as possible.
Thanks for the inspiration!
