Betty the Grate

One of Betty's favorite moments was meeting Bonnie Hunter in Shipse.  She loved Bonnie and all her patterns.  Bonnie's blocks in the Quiltmaker magazines kept her busy making potholders for years - but she was very selective on who she made them for.  I am sure Carolyn will have a list of who has been naughty and who has been nice.  I must have made it to the nice list somewhere along the way because I received some potholders from her.

I was always nervous when Betty would receive a gift from me.  It was the inspection process that worried me.

Betty was often caught in the act of sorting other peoples scraps.  If she liked one of your pieces of fabric, she would hint very strongly to throw the scraps her way.  Or she would often ask, "do you have any more of that one."

We loved her for her honesty and her great one line interjections that made us all smile during meetings.  She will be greatly missed.
