Hi Karen Louise, im going to make your beautiful quilt as my next project. You have set such a high standard so i hope that when i get round to this project you wont be disappointed. I would be very unhappy with myself if the finished item doesn't at least meet a bit of your standard. I am now taking orders from friends in order to make a bit of extra cash now that i have retired. Well i just felt Karen Louise since i was making them as a hobby that i may as well try and sell them. Do you sell them and if you do is it local or have you expanded to the web?? Take care and lots of love from Scotland xx

try Michelle Crawford's web site flowerboxquilts.com. It was in Dec/Jan 2011 Quilter Magazine.

Being an heirloom is fine, but, I think the greatest honor one of my baby quilt gifts could receive would to become a child's favorite blankie .

Snuggle, Thanks so very much. I clicked on your file to be your follower because I would be interested to see what you post and it would be nice to stay in touch. I do sell quilts and related items at local bazaar and occasionally, I do something to order (custom). However, I give way to friends and donate for fun raisers more than I sell. It's a very time consuming hobby. Let me know if you can't get the pattern and I will see what I can do.

Thank you Karen Louise, your very kind words have gave me an incentive and more than that i'd say the push i needed to get back on my machines. My mother died 2 years past 8th june and as the eldest of 6 i nursed her at home for a while before she went into hospital. I've taken her passing really bad and the therapy i received didn't help so im in a bit of a rut at the moment. My husband believes strongly that as we were very close and the age difference when you get older doesn't seem as big as we think when we're young. My mother had only turned 77 yrs old and i was 58 so when i think of it that way he could be right. In Scotland everybody gets a free bus pass when we turn the age of 60 which we can use to travel anywhere in Scotland and although my husband and i have a car i used to say to my mother well mum never mind you and I will go a good run in a bus { even though i hate a bus } away up north and have a long weekend touring parts of the highlands that she had never been to. My mother thought it was hilarious that her and i would be travelling together with our old age pensioners bus pass when she still saw me as her bairn { baby } she was looking forward to it no end but it wasn't to be Karen Louise. However looking on the bright side she used to laugh until she cried with laughter. That is a memory of my mother that makes me smile. I don't believe i'm sitting here on my chair with my laptop telling a complete stranger about this. I don't know what it is Karen Louise but it's very strange but although we are complete strangers i get a wonderful homely vibe from you. I haven't spoken to my closest friends like i am writting to you. Anyway as i said you have given me the incentive to get back on my machines which for the first time in a while i feel really good about. Keep in touch Karen Louise. I've just thought about something that is probably a coincidence but ive got a cousin Karen and her daughter is named Louise. Strange or what. I'll be quilting all day tomorrow and hopefully finish the project thats lying on my table so that i can try and attempt your one. luv betty xx
