John Locke..Have you heard of this dear man?.... 2 1/2 years to create this LAST SUPPER and to hear his story of the begtinning to the end....9 feet of inspiration. His tie-dye shirt matches the fabric that backs the quilt and was specially done for him. To hear him describe the process, see a piece of this magnitude up close and then quietly look and witness its meaning....AMAZING!
The trunk show CELEBRATING Green Fairy was as marvellous as I dreamt it to be. I sat in the middle with my mom and was so fun to listen to her stories, enjoy her dry sense of humor and think, "This girl is rockin' it!" To hear the audience swoon at the quilting and ooh with pleasure at her original patterns...It was such a gift to see her CELEBRATED and to know her as a friend, woman, mother, wife, and peer. Yep, shed a few tears and felt blessed to have been introduced to this lovely lady 2 years ago.
Any my funny story....Judi had my quilt that I had pieced in her trunk show because of her quilting of it. Judi had me raise my hand when showing it and as I was leaving the aisle a woman remarked, "What a lovely quilt, you are definitely not the look of a quilter...."
And.......Roxy has a friend! Mom bought a Bernina today and we have been quilting up a storm, can't wait to share tomorrow!!!
Hope you are all having a lovely Saturday, Em
