I am finally able to share a picture of our Westie Friendship Quilt. The quilt is a project from Westies Unite, an online group of people owned by westies (Westhighland White Terriers). Group members are mostly Americans, but a few members are Canadian, British and Australian. We try to meet once a year, preferably accompanied by the reason we are a group - our Westies! But I digress. Joan came up with the idea of how to do something for a member (human, that is) fighting an illness. Only Joan (in Missouri) and me (in New Jersey) are sewers. Joan sent squares of fabric around the US and Canada and members wrote on the blocks. They sent the blocks back to Joan and she embroidered over what they wrote and drew. Meanwhile, I made blocks for my westies and for the westies of the surprise recipient of the finished quilt. Then Joan sent me her finished blocks and I put the quilt together. Last night was the surprise presentation while the recipient was visiting another member of our group. Joan and I got patched in on a speaker phone conference call. It was pretty emotional. So, I am finally able to post a picture of the finished Westie Friendship Quilt.
