On "A Little Something"

The following email received makes all the fingersticks, all the strained eyes, all the dust bunnies worth it. 
THIS is why I quilt.


I absolutely LOVE the quilt!!!  I ADORE it!  Everyone in the house does!  It turned out sooooo beautifully.  The fabrics you chose just tie the whole  thing together perfectly.  I love the border, I love the yellow butterflies on the back.  I love it, love it, love it.

And Kim..... the quilting..... positively amazing.  The lamb!  The  butterfly!!  The ballerina!!!  The giraffe!!!!  I could not believe it. Such a subtle detail that only a true artist would think to do.  The quilting is gorgeous... and all by hand, gasp!

Margaret loved it immediately, and asked if it could go on her bed.  I  hesitated, because of course I wanted it for myself, but it is now on her bed.  We will have to set up a quilt swap schedule.

Kim, truly, the quilt is so lovely.  Thank you so, so, so much for your talent and hard work.  Another of your beautiful quilts in our home makes the place feel even more comfortable.  I'm going to have to set up a Kim Morris Quilt Exhibit.

Next item on my wish list.... a queen size quilt for our bed.  I'm thinking lots of different white fabrics - too dull?  I will start saving.  In the meantime, this gorgeous quilt will keep me thrilled for years and years and years.

Thank you again so much for such a lovely work of art.

VERY Sincerely,
Jane B.
