Hi Jennifer, Something you may not know about me is that I was in a near fatal rollover in November, 2009. My recovery took a big leap when I stumbled onto your website. I was looking for pillowcase directions after reading about the One Million Pillowcase challenge. It wasn’t long before I became a dedicated FAN of TTMT. I have been so inspired by your patterns, your enthusiasm for trying new things, and the designing and crafting you do for good. You inspired me to take a beginning quilting class to renew very rusty skills. I tried paper-piecing when you drafted the Stars for Linus pattern and asked quilters to make and send blocks. It was a great feeling to complete a block – finishing something has been huge for me – and send it to you to become part of a larger project. When I read your article on the Quilting Gallery today and saw the beautiful examples, I was reminded about how you have played a major role in my recovery. I rediscovered my love for quilting, learned how to paper-piece, actually completed a block, made at least a dozen pillowcases (I also recommend your tutorial to folks) work very part time in a quilt shop, and hope to become skilled enough at paper piecing to teach a future class using your Tree Trimming pattern. All this took place because of you and your willingness to share with others! Thank you!!! Carol P.S. Your directions are concise and easy to follow. And, your examples are beautiful!
