A quilt every few days or so #1
I have two friends that are showing a quilt a day. Julie is just starting to show her quilts and Sharon has been going for two months now. I can't promise a quilt a day - but I'll try for one every few days and we'll see how that goes. You can spend an eternity at Sharon and Julie's blogs - they make some of the best quilts you'll ever see. Julie does my machine quilting - so you'll see some of her work here from time to time.
The first quilt I want to show you is one I made over 15 years ago. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted. We call it Aunt Mary's Rose - after one of Don's aunts. I like this photo of it on the porch of our house in N. California.
This is the whole quilt, hanging on the clothesline at the house we lived in before we bought this house. I miss that clothesline - we aren't allowed clotheslines here and I think that is a shame, because you get such pretty pictures on clotheslines. I am trying to think of some way to string a line from the house to the little grove of trees in the back yard - a line that I can hook up to take photos of quilts and then take right down.
