I made that quilt.
I love quilts. My mother and grandmothers and great-grandmothers have all been quilters. I have a family tree that goes back to the 1500s and there is a Master Weaver on there, so textile arts are in my DNA. I made a quilt for my wedding, I made quilts for my babies. I even wrote a great report on Quilting for my American Art History class at the University of Dallas.
I made another quilt just like this one but different, for the other daughter.
I started them 8 years ago. When I only had Two Daughters.
And now I have THREE daughters.
The quilting gods have been good to me and I may have found enough discontinued fabric, in the same print but a THIRD color to back the third quilt. (If anyone has some extra Moda Robyn Pandolph Secret Garden or Morning Glory fabric, Please Email me.)
I only have 568 more triangles to sew onto 71 more squares to make 8 pointed stars.
Lest you think this is some old timey picture, I'll have you know that's a One Direction calendar above Susan's bed.
I took Frank's advice and got out my camera manual and learned how to take pictures in Monochrome.
Here's the color version. I haven't made matching pillow cases yet.
Here's a close-up of the backing fabric. This is actually Lucy's quilt. Susan's is at the quilter's house right now, being machine quilted by a woman whose daughter lives in Sevilla! Small weird world.
Linking up with Cari for Theme Thursday.
