    Hi Cheryl,

    I am a quilt maker, writer and lecturer in London, England. I just noticed your “Ananda at Last” quilt on The Quilt Show. I’m putting together a lecture to give at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England next August and would love to include a photo of your quilt in my talk. I could use the images from the Quilt Show website if you don’t have good ones of your own.

    I’m really writing to get permission to show slides of this work in my talk. Of course you will get credited on the slide. If it’s ok for me to use it, would you also give me the size and any other information you have about the making of the quilt.

    Please do let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

    With all best wishes,

    Linda Seward
