OK, guys, here goes: One day Miss Sassy Soothsayer was zipping about Mohicanland, checking out the flurry of activity generated by the news that one Eric Schweig was going to visit the Gathering in person! She noticed that there was MUCH going on throughout the land, as each person reacted to the news in his or her own way. The teeny bees (Bee Still My Heart & Bee Bop a Lula) were going berserk over the possibility of seeing their hero in the flesh (thought not quite as much flesh as was exposed during the movie). Miss Marcia was cookin' and bakin' and stirrin' and fryin' up a feast in celebration. And Miss Katie O' Arbroath was busy designing a brand new quilt just for the occasion...a new pattern she had named the Inuit Star, in honor of the upcoming visit. Now, unbeknownst to Sassy, the REAL Kate was happily making up a cute little quilt for the raffle, just because of her persona's Quilt Shoppe in Mohicanland. When Sassy threw her the curve about the quilt being called the Inuit Star, she had to do a quick revision, as her patchwork quilt was nearly finished. She added a nice appliqued star shaped piece in the center, embroidered the words "Inuit Star" upon it, and on another square, commemorated the 2nd Annual Gathering. And there you have the story of how that quilt came into being.
Lest we not forget our Mohicanland counterparts, I'd like to thank both Miss Katie O' Arbroath, Proprietress of Miss Katie's Quilt Shoppe AND Kate Penman from across the seas for the lovely quilt and other touches of Scotland she shared with us.
Clear it up any? ;o)
