Convo between a Quilter (me) and NonQuilter (Carol)
Quilter: Sure. A wall hanging? A tote? A Purse?
NonQuilter: Could I commission a wall hanging?
NonQuilter: I would like something with a house in the middle.
Quilter: Hmm, three houses with a house in the middle?
NonQuilter: No, just a house.
Quilter: What kind of house.
NonQuilter: You know, a house...
Quilter: Ranch? Georgian? Victorian? Bungalow? Queen Anne? What material - stucco? brick? frame? What color? Give me a clue.
NonQuilter: uh...BLUE !
Quilter: Ok, blue. Navy? Light? Royal? Marine? Teal?
NonQuilter: Wait... ***sends a photo***
NonQuilter: I don't know.
Quilter: I live in a world of quarter-inch seams. Get a ruler and give me a clue.
NonQuilter: I don't have a ruler.
Quilter: What kind of crazy talk is this?
NonQuilter: Well, I don't. But the size of the wall hanging you gave me last year would be right.
Luckily, I remembered - vaguely - what I gave Caire last year. And then more of the story unfolded. This house is the actual home of the Catholic Youth Ministry of Morgan Park. There is no link to post, but this group does have a Facebook page! Happy to contribute to this organization.
