Dear Mrs. Gasperik:
First of all, Congratulations on being the blue-ribbon-winner.

This was truly a masterful work of art – not only the applique and the crewel embroidery, but the quilting, itself, was of such pattern that this quilt was unique.

I am writing to inquire, if this quilt can be ordered up or does one have to do all of the work. I can imagine it would cost an exorbitant amount of money, but it is worth it, I am sure, when I stop to think of the time consumed to turn out the finished product.

I would appreciate hearing from you, if at all possible, concerning this matter, and thank you for your time.
