This very lovely little art quilt postcard was sent to me by Stephanie London who lives in Edmondton, Canada. She said she wanted to catch the wintery sky on a sunny day I think she did so beautifully with a batik background, a couple of pieces of organdy across the center, the dull golden sun and the lines of stitching, the ten thoughtfully positioned beads. I will display it as one of the most successful small quilts I've ever seen.
This strip quilt was made using drier sheet as the foundation. This quick and easy method is always fun because I can choose exactly which piece comes next but will always be surprised when I put several together and see the patterns formed.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
