Not Uncle Donald can quilt (which he did) but rather Uncle Donald’s Quilt as a type. Yes, you need to make an Uncle Donald Quilt.
This started when I wrote a post about my Uncle Donald’s quilt . I do not think Uncle Donald realized that he was creating a leader ender quilt (Doubtful, since it was pieced by hand). I’m not sure I realized it was one until Susan from DesertSky Quilting pointed it out. It was always just Uncle Donald’s quilt to me.
Once Susan started posting about her Unlce Donald’s quilt, I got a bit teary eyed. Nearly every post she mentioned the progress on her Uncle Donald Quilt. Uncle Donald and his sister (my grandmother who taught me to sew) are happily looking down. I am sure that they are just as pleased as I am that someone(s) decided to make a leader/ender quilt and call it Uncle Donald’s quilt. I know that every time I see the words Uncle Donald’s quilt, I smile and think of them both and how pleased they would be.
I would love to see/post photo’s of other “Uncle Donald Quilts”. I now find myself using leader enders more than I have in the past, because I need to make my own Uncle Donald quilt. My intent is to post my progress as I go, as well as any other Leader Ender quilts that anyone wants to share.
Please email me your photo’s or links at firstname.lastname@example.org.
