  1. I'm Kathy Johnson who made Heirloom Quilt with my mother. My brother in Amsterdam actually found this on your blog. I see that you enjoyed some of the same quilts that we did at the show. Thank you for including our quilt in your blog.

  2. Kathy, your quilt is so so beautiful. Hat's off to you and your mother, your mastery of needlecraft is an inspiration.

    Heirloom truly was my favorite of all the extraordinary quilts at the show. And I was especially touched by the fact that you and your mother did the quilt together, it is truly an heirloom.

    I would count myself fortunate to complete a pillow with so much detailed hand work . . . can't even contemplate a whole quilt!
