There is a woman in my life. It’s time to tell the world!
Her name is Cindy and she is the Sewing Specialist for LOQ and Floor Director on set when we film Love of Quilting. Cindy — or “Cindy Lou” as I like to call her — is part lifesaver, part saint, part taskmaster, and definitely someone I consider a friend. She’s also a very, very good quilter.
She has a wall of patchwork in her studio and I absolutely adore looking at it whenever I’m here in Iowa. It’s inspirational. On the lefthand side, Cindy tacks up blocks and pieces and parts that were made with new techniques or were otherwise patchwork bits she hadn’t tried out before. (Yes, they’re all 100% “perfect.”) The righthand side is the section for the “Tried and True” blocks she’s working on for whatever issue of LOQ magazine is in production.
Thanks, Cindy, for your wall of color and and your generous smile. This stuff makes the world go ’round!
