Introducing Monica Washburn

An old friend, Monica Washburn, came to visit me at the Country Concessions Quilt Shop booth at Quilt Canada 2008 in St. John's, Newfoundland this spring. Monica was my hostess during a teaching trip to Fredericton, New Brunswick many years ago.

Monica bought my Leaf Magic Little Quilt pattern, and sent me this photo of the two Sugar Maple Little Quilts that she has since made. Monica describes herself thus: "I am really just a traditional quilter, but I do like to try new things".

Monica's husband Tom was an avid fly fisherman, and gave me one of his beautiful hand made fishing flies as a gift.

Teaching is rewarding in many ways. I've met many fine people on my trips, and two of them are Monica and Tom.
