I contaminated one of my dear friends with the hexagon virus. She lives nearby and while I write this, I realize that in the future there will be opportunities to meet and stitch together.
Her name is Luminita. I met her in 2007, in dramatic circumstances, for our family and for her as well. We helped each other, probably she helped us more than we helped her. And she became our friend, and even more than a friend, she is like a sister.
She always loved my quilts and always was interested to know how I made this or that quilt. She loves the quilt I made for her little boy and she was in love with the Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt I made with my sisters.
As you don’t have to be a quilter to stitch hexagons, I taught her how to do it. I cut squares and filled a box.
I cut paper templates and selected a few spools of thread….
and she was ready to sew. She has no stitching experience, and look what wonderful job she did. She stitched this flower in a few hours.
She leaves the country for 2 months and next time when I see her, I am sure she will have a lot of stitched flowers.
Today was a great day, I hope your day was great too.
