    Hi Everyone - I made this quilt in honour of my Grandmother, who I called Jo, who has now passed. She who told me I could be an artist from when I was very small and actually made me believe I could create. Her doyley is around the image of the bird. It is titled "Season Of Plenty". I bet she would have gotten a kick out of seeing her doyley online. So, Jo, this one is for you and for letting me dream.

    Hi wvdek - yes, and he helps with the sewing too. Believe me!!~!! It does get difficult when quilting though as he tends to sit on the quilt on the machine as you try to sew. Thankyou for your comment:)
    Thankyou too sewnsewer2 :)
