    Hi, I live in Melbourne and would be very interested in seeing the quilt if I knew where the showing will be. Could you let me know where and when as this is news to me. I enjoyed reading the story. Thanks so much.

    Vivienne is a lovely name for a quilt pattern. I agree that you must include Vivienne's story and quote with the pattern. Another idea is "Vivienne's inspiration" Super quilt and lovely fabric. I look forward to seeing that pattern soon.

    What an amazing story of a truly amazing woman. I don't have a favorite for a name, but I do know the quilt is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for sharing.

    A beautiful journey goes with this quilt. What a lovely story you shared! Vivienne's Journey might work too.

    "Remembering Vivienne" came to my mind as I was reading. What a great story! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi, Chris - here is the link for the show, http://www.aqm.net.au/mel_default.aspx
    It is a wholesale and trade only show, not open to the general public. It is where wholesalers meet to see all the new ideas, new patterns, new fabrics, etc. and to order for the coming year; held Nov 25 and 26 at the Exhibition Centre.

    I must say, your repsonses have been tremendous! Thank you for all your lovely comments and suggestions. I particularly like the idea of tucking a little writeup of Vivienne's story into a pocket on the back of the quilt. And with more input from Vivienne's daughters and granddaughters it has been wonderful getting to know her through the process of making and naming this quilt. I love this craft and being able to connect to people in our lives through quilting.
