That must have been one of the many bright log cabin swaps. I did enough of those swaps to make a quilt too. Sophie still lives in Santa Fe. She used to be quite active on about.com and did lots of fun swaps.
How utterly bizarre!
And, yes, I remember Sophie very well.
Are you talking about the same Sophie that I met up with at the National Quilting Association show in Columbus, Ohio in 2008? (My hair was redder and I was significantly heavier so Sophie's looks might have changed as well.)
Looking at Sophie's quilt again and zoomed in. I remember that spiral quilt pattern and a lot discussion about how to do it. It became quite popular on quilt blogs for awhile and then disappeared.
WOW!! That is a blast from the past!!
Maybe more of an... explosion!! I recall her as an avid quilter and her hosting swaps enthusiastically kept them going for a time.
I still love the way my LBLC quilt turned out. Especially after Ami quilted it for me!! That was a real splurge. I'm trying to plan where it may go in the new house to really see it in all of its bright glory!
I had forgotten about all those swaps. Even more cool that it might have some blocks in it from other forum members, makes it a real community quilt. Glad I bought it, even if DD doesn't want it - tho she will because she loves red and brights.
That is soo cool. The quilt it beautiful. For some reason, I think one of my 'doll swap quilts' is from Sophie. I may have to pull them and take a look, I could just be remembering the name from the old forum. Hope it did well with in the fund raiser.
