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?
You are a quilter's hero. Thank you for giving this work of art a good home!:)
The quilt is gorgeous. I'm glad someone who will treasure it has it
AWww that is sweet!! lovely quilt!!
Thats History. and its beautiful,
That gave me goose bumps! How sweet a person you are.
Very special and lovely needle work.
Thank you very much for sharing the
pictures and your lovely message.
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.....
Awesome! How grand that you found it & are giving it a home!
