Joni’s quilt lands in Salmo

Click to enlarge

Danica’s plan was to have Joni’s log cabin quilt ready in time to be a Christmas gift, but you know how hectic things get around that time of year. The idea is to enjoy making these beauties, not to rush them because of a deadline.

So now Joni gets a lovely surprise, right out of the blue… in plenty of time for use against Winter’s chill. It gets a lot colder and snowier up in the Rockies than it does in Toronto, especially this year.

Danica’s quilts are all different from one another, in fabrics, of course, but also in styles. She’s made log cabins in different configurations, a puzzle quilt, pineapple log cabins and other designs I don’t know the names for. Every one is unique and if you get one, you know you’re in Danica’s good books. They take a lo-o-o-n-g time to finish.

Here’s my little animation of the 2800km trip. Love ya, Joni!

I have never seen a quilt with that much detail! How amazing that you could sew those amazing colours together. Such talent!

I feel loved and warm in this work of art!

Thank you so, so much.

Yes, Danica’s very good at sewing and selecting colours, but quite modest about it. She likes to say that her hobby is cutting up big pieces of cloth into small pieces and then sewing them back together again.

I’m glad you like it Joni. I enjoyed putting it together for you and it’s nice to have something to give back. You have shared many of your creative effects with us over the years – your music, video projects, bead work, leather work, many lovely stone pieces and so much more. They keep you close to us too!
