A while back, I had admired a quilt that Musicmaker had posted a pic
of, and inquired where she got the pattern. She was kind enough to
just send me the whole magazine that the pattern was in.

I finally got the quilt finished, and here is a pic:

I had to write a "story" for each quilt entered. I wrote how someone
I'd never met sent me the pattern just because I had admired *her*
quilt. I forgot to fill in the line for the *name* of the quilt on the
form. So I get there today, looked at the program to find my quilt,
and found that the quilt show organizers had just filled in that blank
line for me. They named it:

"Quilters Are Nice People."

I didn't have a problem with that. Thank you, musicmaker.

Re: Quilt Pic--Thank you Musicmaker
Beautiful quilt and great story! I'm now thinking I'd like to do
something like that for a QOV. I used that setting for a Christmas quilt
I made from some swap blocks (I don't have it quilted yet), and I think
it makes a great looking quilt.

Nice job, Sherry.

Lovely - it would have taken me weeks to get that colour placement!!  I
told you I was no good at anything approaching random!

Re: Quilt Pic--Thank you Musicmaker
Oh sure you could, Pat.  It does take time, luck, practice, talent and !
I've learned with random that my camera is my friend.  Lately when I'm
arranging, I take a picture and study it.  If there's a glaring "doesn't go
there" it will stare right back at you.  Sometimes, the picture says "no.
Not yet".   And then one like Sherry's will just sing.  I can hear the music
now.  I think it's something by Sousa.  Polly

Oh, Pat. You are just trying too hard -- if I can do it, anyone can. I
got
a gift certificate for my birthday and just went and picked out random
FQ's without much thought about whether they "went" with each other,
just whether I liked them!
Random, I can do. But these beautifully coordinated quilts that I saw
at the show -- forget it. I go in the shop and get so overwhelmed by
indecision.  I'm looking hard at some kits! Decisions already made for
me!
Thank you so much for the compliment.
And Polly, I was thinking maybe it was singing Indian flutes, but I
think
your guess is closer--Sousa!

I love your camera idea. I can see that quilt so much better in the
picture
than I ever could in person. I'm going back to the show tomorrow and
take pics of other peoples' quilts just for inspiration. This show
just beat
all I've ever seen. Every quilt there was just a beautiful piece of
work.

Kate, I'm thinking it was "Quiltmaker." I still have that mag for
sure, I'll
just have to look for it --  I had to put All Things Quilty away for
the
holiday weekend. I'll get back to you. Don't let me forget -- my
email addy is sriddles at aol dot com. If you're interested, I'd
be glad to send it on to you.

Sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but I just ran across that
magazine (my mags and patterns
are scattered hither and yon). It was "Quiltworks", March of 2003.

Re: Quilt Pic--Thank you Musicmaker
Your quilt is gorgeous!  The organizers are right.  And Musicmaker is a
wonderful contributor to the world of quilting.  Win-win-win.  Love it!
