One quilt blogger I truly miss is Deb Clarke. Her work, her help, her personality were extra special. When she died, her husband contacted me and said he was going through her sewing room with great difficulty. I can't imagine the grief.
Russ let me know he found a couple of quilts that Deb had asked him to have me quilt. I had offered to quilt Deb's quilts when she had fallen so ill, but the shot hastened her death and I never was to hear from her again.
This past week, I received a special box with two quilts inside, backing, and some batting. The first quilt I took out was a batik. I looked it up on Deb's blog to tell me some of the story. You can see how it came to be. However, when I pinned it on the wall, it seemed to need some border or ending to the piece, but I did not know if I had the right to change it.
|With borders, I think it extends the quilt and makes the slashed pieces stronger|
Thank you to all the bloggers who let me into their lives and enrich mine so fully as Deb Clarke did!
