    Our guild is having a nutritionist come give a lecture in April. She normally charges a fee for her lectures, but is doing it pro bono for us. So, I made her the attached as a Thank You gift. It's from Quiltmaker Mag., May/June 2000.

    Of course, not a one of our members needs advice or counsel on such things as weight control, but our program committee thought it might provide an interesting change :lol: :roll: .

    I have the magazine and always admired that pattern. Maybe one of these days I'll try it.

    This is a fabulous quilt. Veggies are my favorite foods & this quilt captures their beautiful colors & shapes. My friend, this lady will be so surprised & I know she will enjoy her quilt. Have a feeling she'll display it on a wall, either in her house, or find an exhibit that she can put it in. Don't underestimate your work. Give yourself a pat on the back for making this for someone who you feel deserves it. it.

    That is a great thank you for a lecture. She will love your group and you in particular! I saw that in the magazine and saved it, but I don't care much for paper piecing. You did a great job!

    That is a wonderful quilt you made. and to make it for someone who is giving a talk is a wonderful idea. I know you will be proud as you give it to her.

    Oh.MY.GOD!!! I have GOT to get that magazine!
    I am a gardening fanatic and would do just about anything to make that!!
    Wow!

    Okay. I don't say that often - and have a hard time finding projects that I would make for myself - but oh.my.god!!! I have got to get that pattern!!

    That is awesome!!

    I don't care much for paper piecing either, but there are some really great patterns out there for this method, so periodically I MAKE myself do it just so I can have the finished results.
