What's On Your Bed?
Somebody started asking people the above question so I thought I'd add my two cents worth. This is the first full sized quilt I made. It's a rail fence pattern done with Bali Batiks. That's when I decided that scrappy might be the way to go, given the cost of all that batik. It's even backed with batik. The red design in the middle is seven hearts that join to form a star. Technically, I have come a long ways but I still really like this quilt.
The chest at the foot of the bed was hand carved by a friend back in the mid-seventies. It holds several more quilts. The stained glass fairy in the window was a gift from our daughter-in-law. She bought it in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
As you can see out the window, autumn is totally over here and we are just waiting for snow. It looks very much like it could happen today.
I worked a bit on my newest creation but there isn't enough change to warrant a picture. We will be going to Fargo for a couple of days so I may be absent during that time. I hope to spend a lot of time in fabric stores searching for the perfect crimson fabric. I have heard that there is a quilt show at The Plains Art Gallery so we want to check that out too. It should be fun!
