During a retreat in 2010, a friend asked who wanted to join in on a row robin exchange. Five of us joined in with Kathy and the exchange began. The beauty of this type of exchange is the stories we share.
The theme of the rows was "Winter."
Kathy started with Delectable Mountains with a Polar Bear.
Chris appliquéd these delightful Snow Men.
My row was stars with Pond Hockey images in the centre.
Rosemarie made a Northern Lights scene with a Dogsled and Polar Bears.
Lorraine created Snowflakes. By the way, she quilted this row herself on my longarm!
Carol's row has Polar Bear inserts.
Sadly our friend Kathy passed shortly after the exchange ended. She did get to see all the rows and was overjoyed with the results. Time has passed along with some of the hurt of loosing a friend. Lorraine and I got together to put the quilt together and quilt it. Barbara took on the binding and is taking the quilt to the hospice that cared for Kathy. We hope they can use it to raise funds. If you live in Kamloops go by their craft sale starting December 6 in the North Hills mall. Maybe you will see "Kathy's Quilt."
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday.
