Group Comfort Quilt

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you may know that I have participated in two online classes with quilt artist Pamela Allen. After the first one, Think Like an Artist, many of us in the group begged for another session. Quite a few of us stayed together for the second class, Still Life is Boring- Not! These were very active e-mail groups, posting pics and critiques and continuing to correspond by e-mail and blogs.

During this year's class, one of our members had a tragic death in the family of a beloved baby grandson. Some of us contributed blocks to make a "comfort quilt." Originally, some one suggested nine patch blocks, but Pamela herself suggested that we contribute art quilt blocks instead. The result is quite amazing. Linda Jacks assembled and quilted the blocks and it is ready to mail to Norway. I think it is okay to post the picture, since the recipient has already seen the photograph.

For Synnove, with love
