Aggie's Wedding Ring 40" x 40"
This quilt came together organically. I had several color waves in batiks made hoping to make another Hot and Cold Flow quilt. I was out to lunch and a little shopping at the Charlton Sewing Center with Sue Pelland (designer of the Leaves Galore Template). It occurred to me that I could cut those color waves into wedges and play.
The doilies were hand-dyed by me. Some were made by my MIL, Winnie Murphy (passed away 2/14/00), given to me by my aunt Aggie Glavin Parker (passed away 11/16/12) and some given to me from Susan Freund (moved to MT 12/12). They were an afterthought, a solution to what to put in the centers. I'm so glad I thought of it!
I cried many tears making this quilt. Listening to Ray Lamontaine and Cat Stevens. It was very therapeutic!!!!!
I haven't quilted in the wedges yet, I'm hesitant but I must....then I'll add crystal:) ill post a picture of it when it's finished.
I'll be blogging about Sue's new book Rotary Cut Applique and giving away a copy, stay tuned.
