    St. Urho Day (only Finnish or MN people will know-smile)

    I created this quilt for my sister-in-law and have never enjoyed making a quilt so much. It was just given to her so now I feel I can post it without her inadvertently seeing it. I hope you enjoy.

    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Beautiful quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Great quilt! Very lovely piecing and quilting. I'm sure it will be loved.

    I used to live in MN, and, I worked for a couple of years with a group of very active Finns who supported Salolampi, the Finnish language camp in northern MN. (Did I spell that correctly? Hmmm, not sure.) I loved working with them -- Great, lively, warm and clever people!
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!
