I am attaching a picture of the two Lucky Lindy's Plane quilts I made because of your help and direction. They were entered in the Maine State Quilt Show in July. The quilts were custom quilted by Ramune Dailide in East Orland, Maine and she did an incredible job.
I want to thank you again for all of your help. Those of us that are "out here" appreciate your researching skills and we benefit a great deal from them.
She sent us this photo of the old quilt and a donation to thank us for our help. She said, “How I wish I had thought to contact your museum a year ago. I've been working on this for over a year, finding fabrics, making & remaking templates, trying to make all fit together correctly.”
I encouraged her to join the museum which she did. Since she’s 60+ and lives outside New England, her membership is only $25 per year. I picked two books from our library that showed how to draft and piece a Lemoyne Star and how to do string piecing and mailed them to her. Penny said if she lived nearby, she’d be our most loyal volunteer and she’ll share the information about our resources with her quilting friends in Ohio.
We look forward to hearing about Penny’s future projects and getting more members from across the country who want to make use of the terrific resources in our library. We think it’s the biggest, most accessible collection of quilting books, magazines, videos and patterns in the country!
