Yesterday, as I was at home for the first time in ages, and not for happy reasons, I decided to make a small quilt. This was from a quilt along here called "Blessings" and the blocks are 4" x 4" finished. I have only now to quilt it, which won't take too long! And hang it up in my new sewing room!
It was very appropriate yesterday to be making this quilt. Those that know me, know that I have been working at Patch-mania, and sadly Ines Touzet, the owner of the shop passed away this week. She will be greatly missed, but I am thankful that she won't have to suffer anymore and that she will be at peace. I wish this horrible illness, Cancer, would someday have a cure.
Ines was an inspiration to Patchwork here in Portugal in opening peoples eyes to what Patchwork is really about. I am sure that Carolina will do her best to continue with the shop and in getting more people to be drawn into the world of Patchwork, we need more people to take an interest in this lovely craft.
