Quilt Pattern: Cottage Charm
In an email dated 08/23/2011:
" We bought this pattern from Quilt
Pattern Shoppe and want to thank you for such a beautiful
design. Am sending pictures of the quilt that was pieced and
quilted by hand for our Relay for Life team. We will be
raffling it in November as a fund raiser for the American
Cancer Society. It took our quilter, Madeleine
Stricklin, seven months to complete. Miss Maddie is so proud
to be a part of this project. She is a cancer survivor
herself and was undergoing treatment while working on the
quilt. She is 83 years old and lives in Brantley, Alabama.
She started quilting with her grandmother and mother at the
age of 6 and started making her own quilts in 1946 when she
moved to Brantley. Miss Maddie says she made quilts simply to
keep warm since a lot of the houses in this small community
didn't have electricity or running water back then. Times
were hard and she hopes we never return to those days but says
she could make it if she had to. Thank you for making
available to us such a beautiful pattern."
