It's a sad day for the Birmingham Quilters Guild. We found out today that two of our beloved members, Dr. Tom Caldwell and his daughter, Kathy, died instantly in a car accident in North Carolina yesterday evening. Dr. Tom, as we called him, was a retired pediatrician and an active member of our guild. Just a couple of weeks ago, he demonstrated how to tie a quilt using a hemostat. He was a favorite when he visited schools to talk about quilts. And Kathy was always by his side. We will miss them.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
