My dear friend (and the Managing Editor of both the magazines I publish) Kit Robinson is a fabulous, award-winning art quilter. For Christmas she made me the most incredible wall quilt. Last Fall (before DX) I took a drive into the Rockies (about an hour from my home) and photographed the brilliant yellow/gold/orange Aspen trees. One picture of a large stand of trees became an inspiration to me. It calms me and I look at it for hours. Well, she took that photo, added mountains and a lovely stream and turned it into a quilt. I was stunned that she would do this for me.

Go to my profile, under expressions/photos and you can see it.

I love my support team! Vicki

Vicki,

What a lovely gift for you. I love to quilt (not that I have as much time anymore with 3 5 and under...) and I can see that your friend put lots of time and love into that quilt for you. I love the name as well.

Are all those leaves on the trees appliqued by hand?

No, she machine appliques everything. Her machine work is incredible. I, too, love the name!

I think we all enjoy helping those around us; sometimes we just aren't very imaginative and don't know what it is we can do. It is a relief when there is something specific we can do for someone specific we either know personally or have heard about through someone/where else. There is no better joy than to be able to put a skill you have to work to help someone else! I can remember back when I went into the office to work and our offices were in the converted garage of my boss' house. I was friends with two neighbor ladies, as I would chat with them while on break. One day one came over to ask if i could drive her to an appointment as they were having car trouble. Of course I said yes and was happy to do it. She was very uncomfortable about asking, but I told her how much I appreciated the opportunity to help!

What an amazing work of art! Yes, so many people come out with love and hope when we least expect it. I too have been very blessed.
