You Just Have to See This . . .

and read the post Gay wrote!!  What an amazing woman she is!!

As many of you may know, Brenda Papadakis, is the author of the Dear Jane book and software.  Pete, Brenda's husband, passed away earlier this year. A secret request was made for 'blocks of love' to be made in his memory for a quilt for Brenda. The block used was Dear Jane block I-8, Pete's Paintbox. The quilt was recently finished and delivered to Brenda.

You can go read the whole story about this fabulous quilt right here - Sentimental Stitches.  It will inspire you and make you so happy and proud to be part of the amazing community we call quilters!!  Thank you Gay and Tammy and all the great gals who sent a block!!  And it's done all in my fave - Kaffe!!  How perfect is that??
