Lou ambitiously started this quilt while pregnant with her daughter Jeannine, never having made a quilt and not having very good sewing skills. The quilt actually took two decades to complete, growing along the way from crib to double-bed sized.

The "Sunshine and Shadows" setting of the blocks creates alternating light and dark diamonds. The strip-pieced border and the cotton batt are in keeping with the traditional character of this scrap quilt.

Lou works part-time for the Prince Rupert Library and when she isn't quilting or gardening she shares her sunny personality and positive outlook with staff and patrons of the library.
