Winter Scene Fabric Postcard by Alice Weickelt

This lovely little fabric postcard came in today's mail from a talented friend in Wisconsin. Alice and I first met when we were thrown together as roommates on a bus tour to the AQS quilt show in Paducah, Kentucky. We often ran into each other at various quilt shows around the Midwest, no planning apparently needed. We've kept in touch since I moved away, and it was a fabric postcard from Alice that got me thinking I should try this too. Alice is nothing if not adventurous when it comes to her quilting, doing everything from traditional "hole in the barn door" quilts to experimental art quilts. This card informs me that her painted Pellon pieces are selling, that she is finishing up her Warmth from Wisconsin entry (year twenty and she often wins an award) and that she is on her 6th selvage quilt (which unlike the others, has grown to bed-size). And she does all this without much fanfare. She reminds me one can loosen up and stop taking this so seriously and achieve wonderful results. Thanks, Alice!
