Have you ever been waiting in line at the grocery store or on an airplane and struck up a conversation with the woman next to you? Chances are it is a brief comment on the weather or current events until you find out she's a quilter and you know you've made an instant friend. The connection we make with our quilting friends is based on a mutual passion for creating, sharing, and supporting. They help us shop and select the perfect pattern & fabrics, cheer us on through a difficult piecing project, and cheer enthusiastically when we show the finished quilt, even when it's not perfect. We can turn to them for personal reassurance, to overcome creative roadblocks and to listen -- really listen -- to our hopes, dreams and crazy ideas like only a woman friend can. This fabric collection began with a lovely vintage floral print found by Lynne Hagemeier's dear friend, Pam Buda, of Heartspun Quilts. Even though Pam designs fabric for Marcus Fabrics, Pam knew that Lynne would love this fabric and saved it for her. Their love of quilting brought them together and their mutual addiction to antiques has made the mode even stronger. They are each other's sounding boards, editors, and cheerleaders. Pam, this on's for you!
