My cousin Sabrena asked me to make an art quilt for her. What she meant was, she wanted me to make a quilt featuring her children’s art. Her four children are all artists and she wanted their art work to comprise a quilt.

I decided to use printable fabric and copied their art work onto the fabric and then formed the pieces into a quilt. She received the new quilt over the July 4th weekend. This is what she said:  “Omg! I got the most gorgeous piece of artwork… today! The pictures looked amazing, the extra details are incredible, the signature corner precious!!! What else can I say I am just so impressed by how you turned my kids artwork into another piece of art. I love it soooooooo much!!!! Thank you!”

This quilt was both enjoyable and challenging. I quilted it on the longarm, leaving the faces open so that the quilting did not distract from the expressions. I was really pleased that she liked it and hope she enjoys it for years to come!

Granny and me with the Sunbonnet Sue quilt she made me.

This is my grandmother with me and the Sunbonnet Sue quilt she made from scraps I provided. It includes scraps from a lot of dresses, skirts and blouses I made in high school. We didn’t call it recycling back then, but it was.

I am so proud to have this photo which I did not even remember being taken.

My art quilt “Bonnie Lass” will be displayed at “The Main Street Gallery” beginning Monday, June 7 in Groton, NY.
