    Dear Rose Anne,
    We have never met, but I just wanted to let you know that I found a quilt you made in a consignment store in New Hampshire and I bought it! I'm a fellow quilter who came across your beautiful hand-quilted lap quilt and I thought I would honor you by buying it.
    Wherever you are, (even if it's in Quilters' Heaven), please know that I will take care of this little gem. I appreciate the time and the skill that you took in making it.
    Maybe you would be angry if you knew how little I paid for it - maybe you would be amused. But I do love it. I'm wondering when you made it? Maybe in the 1980's?
    Sincerely,
    Jennie

    In a good world, some old lady would overhear a pair of other old ladies commenting on a quilt someone found and loved, and she would murmur to herself, "I wonder what ever happened to that quilt I made for......all those years ago before I married my Bill?"

    Oh, well, just dreaming. But it would be fun to find out who Rose was and what her life was like. Denning is not such a common name as Smith or Jones. Just maybe.....
