This link will take you to Candy Goff Quilter Extraordinaire and she is from MONTANA, yea!
She HAND sews everything! and HAND quilts everything!! She has won Best of Show at the Houston International show for several years and has a quilt in the 100 Best Quilts of the Century Museum. Just thought you might like to see her some of her work. Haven't heard about her recently, so am not sure what new quilts she has out there.

I just loved the Lady Slipper! Wish I had that kinda talent. Her quilts are just beautiful. No wonder she has won all those awards. Thank you for sharing with all of us Mamu.

Oh, yes I did read it...I have a quilt it has taken me two years so far in the making and is not done yet. The teacher/designer of the quilt told me that perseverance is the only thing that will get this quilt done. There were others in her class that had taken the class for the third time...should have known at that point, how hard it was going to be...but for some reason I have continued to work on it...all the time thinking of Lee’s voice saying perseverance. I am sure the little voice in Candy’s head was telling her that. She has some extraordinary quilts. Any one of them would pose a challenge to me.

Funny thing is that this quilt, Rolling Stars I started when my father got ill a couple of months before he passed on. It has been a healing quilt for me.
