The Kindness Of Quilters



When I was making my Getting It Done List for March, I listed buying fabric to make the quilt for the hunting club.

Later in the day I received this email from a lady in Missoula, MT who asked to be anonymous.  I really want to tell you who she is because she is so very kind.

I have a quilt kit of wildlife fabric -- not only deer but other more-or-less local wildlife that I'd donate for your quilt raffle if you'd like it.  I'm trying to downsize my stash, but I want it to go where it is appreciated and will be used, so I thought of you when you've been talking about getting started on that quilt.  Let me know and I'll mail it off to you.

I told Ernie about it and he was shocked.  I was too but I know about the kindness and generosity of quilters.  

Yesterday this kit arrived in my mail box. I'm sure our group of hunters are going to be thrilled with the chance to win this quilt.  It will surely be appreciated and used.  I guess I should change my March list to say start this quilt. 

Thank you my friend in Missoula, MT.  You are a genuine sweetheart.

Quilters are, indeed, generous people.

The quilt is going to be beautiful.

How wonderful for you. How wonderful of Ms. Missoula. Now get sewing, girlfriend. You've got a quilt to make. :)

Awesome! This is the best way to downsize what you no longer want or have need of. It goes to someone you know that has need of it. How lucky for you and the hunters that Ms. MT reads your blog. Can't wait to see it all stitched up!

That just makes me feel happy all over :*) One of the reasons I am proud to tell people I am a quilter is because most quilters are just like your generous & caring friend!

I'm not surprised. Quilters love to share. That will be a very special quilt.
