I drove to Greensboro to see a dear friend, Munirah, to work with her granddaughters planning quilts they would like. And to get one of her awesome haircuts. NO ONE else has cut my hair the way I like it, the way I feel like me, for nearly 20 years.
The moment I entered her home at 2 PM, I was greeted by, not just by Munirah, but by her sister, Samira, too. It was as if I had entered a whole new world. Awesome home. Aura of peace. Compatible sisters sharing a home. Before the girls arrived, Munirah brought out her 2013 Red & White Twister Quilt. Next thing I knew Samira was brainstorming for a quilt for her bed.
We planned quilts in that whirlwind of activity & excitement from 2-6 PM. Samira ordered pizzas. We concluded our day in fellowship around the table. I had a quiet 2 hour drive home then sat down to capture the details in writing. Five hours later, I could rest.
Two Years in the Making
WoW - Stands for Will O'Wisp, the quilt pattern from Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin book.
This is my second one. It really is a log cabin quilt but with 60 instead of 90 degree angles.

The Real Costume
PS: Anyone who has sent more than 70 quilts always gets top priority even over mine.
If your quilt is time sensitive, be sure to let me know.
Otherwise follow the blog to see what mischief I am up to.

Terry & Linda Roush tell me this hand pieced quilt was made by a family friend in southern Ohio who was 90 years old
when she completed it. She died about a year ago but was still making quilts for friends until she passed. Wow!
