    This is my first time to post a picture so hope it works!

    This quilt top has a story that I'd like to share. My friend, Vicki (who had moved to Ohio) was an avid new quilter. About 2 years ago, she sent me a BIG boxes of fabrics, FQs and some precut 2" , 4" and 6.5" blocks, separated into plastic containers. She had cut a lot of blocks knowing that I can't use a rotary cutter (can't get leverage as I'm paraplegic). I thanked her for her generosity and thought she had decided not to open her online shop. She told me she thought I could use some of it for charity quilts. Within two month, she died from inoperatable cancer. She didn't tell me until close to the end.

    This is a tribute to her using almost all of the 2" blocks she cut. So it is named, Vicki's Many Trips Around The World.
