Quilter Kathy eed me this morning to give me a "HEADS UP". Seems The Quilt Rat has a new project and the reason it might be very interesting to me is IT'S MY QUILT THAT SHE IS MAKING!!!
Seriously--in 2005, my "Down the Garden Path" quilt was featured in Quilt Almanac magazine. I was thrilled! I had several other quilts published, but this one is the one I am most proud of.
Jill is making my quilt for her sister out of her sister's husbands shirts. Seems she lost him to cancer and this is a "love quilt". Jill is making her quilt completely from the heart not only using his shirts, but such symbolism as using a rose background for the applique border because her sister's name is Rose. Also other fabrics in the quilt depict her husbands loves and hobbies. You simply MUST go over and take a look at her work.
