My favorite quilter died a few months ago. That's how I referred to her to my husband, "You know,___, my favorite quilter". She was 91 and led an inspiring life, which included working, learning and creating to the very end. I got to know her by quilting her quilts over the past 8 years. In fact, I had one quilted, but had not gotten it back to her before she died.
Even though my favorite quilter did not get to see her finished Lone Star quilt, her family hung it above the alter at her memorial service. It was a beautiful tribute.
As I mentioned in my last post, I have been thinking about making a Lone Star quilt. My last conversation with my favorite quilter was about how I wanted to make a Lone Star, but I found it intimidating. She told me to just go ahead and do it, "it's not that hard".
I hope that when I am 91 I will be making and learning new things. But I'll get started on the Lone Star before then, since my favorite quilter said it's not that hard.
