There was another pieced quilt, an older one; I can't identify this block name.heard it referred to as "Texas Tears" but I can't confirm that. Most of Susan's collection was acquired while she lived in Texas, so that might be right, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know? I adore the simplicity of this block and the way it is set alternating dark and light backgrounds.
Susan's latest obsession is purchasing quilts and tops for her collection from E-bay; as well as from on-line auctions for a cause, like Ami Simm's AAQI quilts.
She passed around a few of those for us to see up close and imagine my surprise when I was suddenly holding this quilt, made by none other than our very own blogging buddy, Quiltdivajulie! I felt momentarily overwhelmed by the connection. Blogging has certainly made our world a smaller one. The Wheel of Fortune was certainly spinning for me that evening, I drove home humming and happy; feeling like the luckiest woman out there for all the inspiration and connections to other quiltmakers through time and space, both near and far!
