Loss to the quilting world.....
« on: January 10, 2017, 04:49:16 PM »
I have verified this as much as I can, but it appears that Sue Garman has passed away.  She was the designer for the quilt I did , Friends of Baltimore.  She has many great patterns, and will be so missed in the quilting and designing world. I believe Ladies of the sea is also one of hers along with many more. Such sad news....

Such sad news.  She was an amazingly talented and intelligent lady.  Cancer is so evil.  I have two of her patterns that will be my next-to-make quilts after I've finished some current UFOs:  Omigosh! and Ancient Stars.  I've always loved her use of small pieces, attention to detail, and think her applique work is beyond stunning.  Rest in peace, Sue.  The quilting world will miss you.

It is so sad. She lost her husband to cancer in September (I believe) of last year. She was so positive on her blog.

I didn't even know she was sick and have been
looking at her quilts a lot lately. :-\
So sorry for her family.

I saw this on the Ricky Tim's Quilt Show site as well.  It is so sad to lose another great quilter.  Her work is an inspiration for so many of us and the collection of her work is a legacy of amazing.  Rest in peace.

I read that her Daughters are going to continue on with her work, and had already started doing it.  I so hope they do, as it would be such a great loss for her work to just go away.....

I didn't even know about this fine quilter.  I went to the web site and am in awe of her talent.  Amazing!!  So sad for such talent to be gone.  But she will put many smiles on the faces of heaven now that she can share her talent once again!!

I did not know of Sue but just looked at her gallery of quilts.  Truly wonderful!  That bunny BOM is my favorite--just so sweet.  She will be missed.

I only knew of her because of Sue B's quilt. Seeing it says a lot about the designer.  What a sorry loss for the needle turners of the quilting world.
Well, I see that she not only was a needle-turner par excellance, but a piecer and great quilter too.
