Today is a special day. One never to be forgotten. Not because we should dwell on bad things but, to remember heroes and good that overcame evil as stranger helped stranger. So I find it fitting that I should get to pick a winner on this special day. That I get to bring a little joy to someone and put a little good into this world.
I also love that this quilt made in honor of my maternal grandmother, Florence Yates DeRyke, is part of that good. I don't really remember her. She died when I was very young. I am told I am a lot like her. What an honor. I know she was resourceful and loved children. So this quilt is scrappy, contains the fabric line PB&J (along with Savonnerie, and one other that is eluding me at the moment.)
The pattern for this quilt is in Fons & Porters new Scrap Quilts magazine. Along with the pattern for this scrappy star quilt that is pre-cut friendly. In case you have a few leftovers from previous projects you would like to use up. The magazine is available on news stands next week.
And as promised I have one to give to a lucky winner. The random number generator picked #34. Barbara is our winner. She said, "i have been making scrapy quilts " Now she will have a bunch of new patterns to use up her scraps. And create her own good in the world.
