Customer Gems - Linda Swanekamp
Linda Swanekamp is a long time blog friend and customer. Last year when she had a sudden heart attack I sent her a get well package of hand dyed scrappy fabrics. Around the same time her Grandson made a handmade get well card and drew a quilt in the photo. The colors in his quilt matched many of the colors in the fabric package. She was inspired to combine both to make a real version of the quilt.
You can read much more about this quilt and follow a link to an online interview to "meet" Linda, on her blog. It's a year since her heart attack and totally healthy again!
For sharing, Linda received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.

I love Linda's card quilt and the serendipitous story that led to its creation (aside from the heart attack part).

Wow. A spotlight for today. Sewing at quilt retreat this weekend.

Linda did a great job using your lovely fabrics to make the card into a quilt.

The story of the quilt makes it even nicer. Love the colors. So glad to hear she is AOK.

What a great inspiration for a quilt - and I'll bet her grandson is so excited to see his drawing done in fabric. Obviously meant to be! And best wishes for her continued recovery.
