    Having found your website awhile back, I have been watching each day your ‘creativeness’ in quilting. Myself, I enjoy the miniature medium, and am always looking for new ideas. However, my point brings me to your Cornerstones (log cabin) quilt. My quilt guild (Berrien Towne and Country Quilters) is doing a community project for the local foster kids…Suitcases for Kids. Those children taken at any given moment have no time to pack. When arriving at the new location, they have practically nothing. Our guild has chosen this project to provide something to the child to “hold onto” whether they stay in the system or be able to go back home. This is why I’m writing to ask your permission to use the basic layout of Cornerstones for a quilt for one of these children. Because of the hearts in the corners, this would cover them in love wherever they would go or stay. Thank you so much for your time, Kathy Phipps
