The famous quilt designer greeted me, “Good morning. I’ll let you know if I need help.”
She perused the solid section then moved to the Batiks and inspected the color options.

She ran her fingers up and down the stack. “A half yard each please.”
I wasn’t surprised when I saw an award-winning quilt entitled “Camouflage Crazy Quilt” in a magazine the following year that had multiple kinds of black floss embroidery stitches.
