Sisters Dancing In The Flowers

ALMOST WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

This was one of my first attempts at art quilting. I made this for my sister, Peg. This is my depicition of our childhood home with us dancing in the flower gardens. There was a long soapstone sidewalk that was surrounded on each side with daffodils.

This is a close up of the title.

This is the two of us dancing in the flowers. 

Here is another shot of the quilt.

  1. SuziCate, That was such a lovely surprise when you sent it. I LOVE my quilt. Hubby is very protective of it! I actually need to hang it up and NOT use it. Thank you again and thank you for being such a great sister. You know I love you!

      • I made that button for Wordless Wednesday when you asked me about it and offered it to the people who seemed to be keeping track, but I never heard from them. Maybe they didn’t get the message.
        It’s completely wordless. I changed the last image; it was supposed to represent asking for donation, which happens when they send labels and calendars in the mail.

      • I terrible at following rules or instructions! I knew it was “wordless:, but I saw on someone else’s blog an almost wordless wed which was the same concept (pictures) but had a few sentences….I’ll try to do better next time!

  2. Quilting seems such a quintessentially American craft and it’s one that I’d love to have a go at some day. This is beautiful and the joy about a quilt for me is that it’s made with love, care and time. I can’t think of a nicer gift to cherish for generations to come. :)

    • It can be very expensive. Most quilts cost me about $75 in supplies, sometimes less if I hit good sales. I love it, but it gives me such terrible back pain that I don’t do it as often now.

  3. Bellissima quilt, SC!

    How talented you are!

    I closest thing I ever got to doing something such as this, was when I went through a period of doing needlepoint and latch-hook rugs.

    (which btw, I NEVER finshed ANY of them)

    HA!

    Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed!
