    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.

    This quilt is a loving tribute to your friend. It would be great for future generations if you can put something about her in your quilt label.
    So sorry for the loss of your wonderful friend.
