The GPO Quilt

By Matt Kelley


As it became apparent that the Great Pig Out would become a reality, Jud Hindes, owner of the Woodcarver Porch mail list, proposed a group "Thank You" gift for Joe Dillett to recognize his significant work in organizing and hosting GPO '99. Jud suggested the creation of a carver quilt, made up of 3" x 3" x 3/4" squares. Thirty carvers responded to Jud's suggestion; Jud constructed the frame and assembled the quilt. Here is the final product; to see close up shots of the individual squares, visit Jud's Quilt PhotoPoint album.
