The RED box!
Posted by pegsplace on August 2, 2013
Well, during my trip I visited my mother. She has told me about this box for a few years now and finally, I got to her house and boy was I ever surprised at the contents!
The contents were from her close friend who died. Her friend Vera had taken a cruise up to Alaska and she bought all kinds of fabric. She died before she could use any of it and gave the fabric to me.
Starting with a signed copy of a book about dogsledding. I used to have my own team and Vera came to visit and met my dogs. She bought this book and had it signed by Susan Butcher:
Granite, the book and then two kits! One of a view of Coastal Ketchikan, Alaska, the other of Soaring Eagles; complete kits with all the material! Wow! Notice the other small pieces of panels, a bear and otters.
Meters and meters of fabric!
Then there are the packets of nature fatquarters:
Then there were meters of landscape quilt fabric:
Then there are the bits of doodads from my mom and it will take a few of you back to the 70s of quilting….I love it!
And the hexagon spirits were with me and that little pattern on the right is here….
And more stuff from my mom and Vera:
