Generosity Of Bloggers

I am continually amazed at the generosity of bloggers/quilters.  Blogging has been a fantastic arena of sharing, showing, teaching, inspiring and motivating.  I'm sure there are many more words to describe what each of us has gained through blogland.

Here's my recent story.  Lori at Humble Quilts mentioned her blogger friend, Martha, over at Q is for Quilter.  Since Lori linked up to her blog, you know I had to take a peek.  I saw immediately that I had found a home for a whole bunch of little vintage 30's prints that I had cut off from blocks purchased on eBay.  My place to store them was going to be in the garbage bin, but I just knew someone out there would love to have them to use.  Enter Q is for Quilter.


After sending off my stack of scraps, Martha gifted me with this amazing piece of workmanship. I'll let her tell the story of this piece, so check out this blog post HERE

She was so generous she even included a piece for the backing and the binding.  I shall hand quilt this and treasure this piece.  Words cannot describe how I felt when I opened up the package. 

With gratitude,
Sharon

I follow Martha's blog. She is very generous in sharing her vintage pattern collection and goes to a great deal of trouble to do what she calls clean up or something or another before sharing the patterns.

That is a very special little quilt. What a sweet gift!
It went to a good home and you will honor it with your hand quilting. : )

Martha is the neatest woman! Sometime when you are in the Seattle area you will need to try and get together with her. I love the quilt!
