A generous gift

Speaking of The Fat Quarter Shop (as we were yesterday), we were delighted to see Miriam back her trip to the US at our Monday meeting, bearing many treasures, including a great boost to our library - a collection of books given to us by Kimberley Jolly from The Fat Quarter Shop, at the International Quilt Festival in Houston!  Thank you Kimberley and The Fat Quarter Shop.

Miriam chatted with Kimberley during the show, and told her about our community quilts program, prompting Kimberley to donate the books on the spot. So thank you Miriam, too, for promoting Fairholme Quilters wherever you go.

Miriam's blog Sew Miriam has kept us up to date with her recent travels, and yesterday she told us a little about her experiences, shared some goodies, and took some photos of us checking out the books.  Take a look at her previous post too, to see her almost finished trip-around-the-world quilt from the recent Brigitte Giblin quilt-along.
