|Thank you for sending me the number grid
and extra tricut fusible so promptly. I stayed up until 3 am working
on the quilt. Last night I finally finished it and at first, thought
it didn't work. Then I tacked it on the wall and backed up and just
said, "Oh my gosh" I couldn't believe it turned out. What
Hi, I'd like to tell you how glad I am that I saw you on Simply
Quilts. I was so impressed and immediately had the idea to make
a Mosaic Quilt of my daughter and her son. It was also a healing
process for me because the baby in the picture, Andrew, my grandson,
passed away in June 2004 at the age of 2...Thank you so much for
sharing your technique.
|Hi Tammie, I wanted to share my first quilt
with you. I have been thinking about making a quilt for several years,
but didn't feel I had the time. When I saw you on Sewing with Nancy,
I immediately looked for your website as I knew this process would
be relatively quick. I loved pressing the pieces on a seeing the pattern
come to life. Thanks for your software and your quilting process....
Regards, Shari Sands
|Thank you so much. I am almost finished
with my first quilt! It is of my grandson and the results are incredible.
I followed your instructions and arranged the fabrics according to
value. From then I had to go in faith because some of the fabrics
looked the same to me. Up until now, quilting had never appealed to
me...But this is totally different. This is art. Thanks for sharing
|Dear Tammie, I lost my son in 1992 and
have been seeking a new way to keep him near even more than I already
do with photographs. Your wonderful gift has given me something very
precious that I can share with other family members. I'll be making
one for my daughter too. This is such a precious gift! Thank you for
sharing your great ideas. You must be a wonderful mother, as just
listening to you speak about your daughter brings that feeling of
warmth and tenderness. May God bless you in your life and family.
