This quilt, this magical miracle of fabric is what I wake up to each morning and the last thing I see at night. It is a source of comfort, inspiration and compassion and it was the unified efforts of two people that created such a joyful song, Shirley Albertson Owens & Catherine J. Etter................
I'm attaching the verse that accompanied this quilt into my world~~~~~~~~~~~
Friendship Tied Up With Bowties Quilt
To Catherine Etter
By SAO May 29, 2009 `
When we collaborated on Karen's quilt
no finer outcome was ever "built."
So would you simply have a fit
If I gave you a quilt and suggested that you "Embellsh it?"
Since our otherwise PERFECT DAY
turned out to end in another way.
I simply had to make you a quilt
and it is scrappy to the hilt.
It is Friendship - Tied Up With BOWTIES
and in the stitches are your favorite butterflies.
But it needs that certain special something
the special thing, that Catherine zing!
So - even though this quilt was made from my heart -
at it's end - it's only at it's start.
I hope you will add some magic to it too
so it will be from BOTH of us to you!
Hugs from your buddy - even more
Are you laughing rolling on the floor?
Far too memorable and special, need I say more??????????? Shirley created the pretty, whimsical, joyful quilt and I designed and added the posies, enjoy...................
