    Loving the trivia! I stumbled upon this while searching. It features a black & white quilt from the March/April 2008 issue of LOQ. A couple of years ago I considered making this quilt, but using duckie fabric (I was at a retreat and didn’t have enough of some fabric). Looking at the quilt today, I think it would be fabulous for a memory quilt with photos in the squares. Just had to share with people who may care. My husband just smiles and nods :)
