A Random Act of Quilty Kindness

View From The Cabin, from Twin Cities Quilting.

Last month Pippa from France (Pippa’s Patch) was the winner of my “View from the Cabin” pattern giveaway. But her luck did not stop there. Luisa from Italy (Luisa’s Quilt Friends), a reader who has been quilting for many years, commented to congratulate Pippa. But Luisa also left a personal note for me to forward to Pippa, offering her a gift.

Luisa's gift to PippaPippa is now the happy owner of these beautifully pieced blocks for a bed-sized quilt, sent her way by Luisa! What a lovely, and totally unexpected, delight! Thanks to Luisa for her generosity, and to Pippa for sharing the story with us all.

A large part of the United States is having a very dry (and often warm) winter, and Minnesota has been no exception. While the far north woods have fared better, most of the state has had little snow, all of which has melted soon as the temperatures climbed well into the 40’s over and over. This week the temps have fallen off to more seasonable, but much of the state has no snow cover. Nice for shoveling, but not so nice for our garden perennials, or the farmers who count on winter snow for moisture. But weather can be very fickle, perhaps we will catch up with snow yet this winter!

This year we have only a trace of snow!

(Yep, we lost a big tree this summer, due to major water main construction.)

    What an absolutely wonderful act of kindness. There should be more people like her in our world-it would be so much lighter and brighter.Maybe the real blessing will be the beginnings of a pay-it-forward type of chain. Warms a cold January night just thinking about it… Thanks so much for reminding me about the preview template for fussy cutting. I got out some poster board and made my own fr 1.5″ and 2.5″ blocks. It is helping greatly in my massive cutting project for the charm swaps I commited to and the quilts I want to make. Sure is a great way to spend many cold and dreary mid-western January hours!
