This counted cross-stitch quilt was the transition from avid counted cross-stitcher to avid quilter. In the 1980s daughter Linda Ginn and I discovered a pattern book by Dale Burdett featuring traditional quilt blocks. As we began to stitch the blocks (using six strands of floss over two squares on 14-ct Aida cloth), I realized to do the beautiful work justice would require a trained quilter. So I began to learn all I could about quilting, leaving her to finish the squares. The quilt won blue ribbons in quilt shows in the early 1990s.
