Garden Club Quilt - Deja Vu

Isn't this quilt FANTASTIC!?  I share with your as I choke up.  This quilt was presented to me as a surprise today.  I made it as a block of the month quilt in 2000 and at the end of the program it was stolen.  That wounded many of us.  I don't DO applique and yet this quilt inspired me to go for it.  We couldn't believe any quilter would steal such a top and be able to enjoy it.  Garden Club Part Deux, has been a secret project from 17!! LQ friends to heal what was wounded.  YOU BET IT DID!  What a loving place to work. The quilt pattern is out of print by Country Threads.  Forgive my self indulgence putting something so personal on the blog but I thought you would like to see the quilt and know what a great shop you  frequent.
