Welcome | Letter from a Listener

Listener Jennie McKee wrote in with the following:

I’m sitting here listening to Diane on the Fine Finishes in the latest podcast…and laughing. I am putting the final stiches in the binding of a quilt I started for my son when he was in middle school in 1986/87 (he’s 47 now and a retired Navy Chief 😄)

The quilt has 782 different red fabrics, the beginning of which I acquired by trading 5 in squares for red through an ad in the Quilter’s Newsletter. It was a wonderful memory to relive while working on the finishing stiches of binding on the last side…35 years later.

The pattern is Devil’s Puzzle.

Happily still stitching,
Jennie McKee
