Pat`s Lily Basket

Pat`s Lily Basket

On March 12, 2013 Patricia B. Campbell went to heaven to make it a beautiful place. While on this earth, Pat was a beloved wife to John, a friend to many, a gifted quilter, designer and fabric designer. Her quilts often displayed bright Jacobean flowers. Pat and I often taught at the same venues so it was easy to become fast and furious friends. She always had a warm smile for everyone. I don't do Jacobean flowers, but I can create a flower-filled block in Pat's honor. I know she is looking down from heaven and smiling. Please note, use Carol Doak Legal Size Foundation Paper for the foundations.
