Quilting for a National Quilt Teacher

A few years ago I got a call from Patsy Thompson. Yes, that Patsy Thompson! She was designing die cutters for Sizzix and had some tops that needed to be quilted for an event and was in a pinch. She mailed this to me and I quilted it using 2 layers of wool!
Because I have a handguided machine, I had to mark the top with blue Clover washaway markers. When Patsy soaked the top to wash that out as well as block the top – her blue feathers ran into the white. Why? Because she didn’t prewash her Batiks! She did manage to get the blue out and this quilt has been a great sample in her booth at different markets.
I was thrilled to quilt it and consider it a “feather” in my cap!
