  7. Mom Deep In Thought

    by , 04-26-2012 at 04:25 PM
    This is a portrait quilt that I made from taking a class but I can't remember the teacher's name at the moment. We used a picture and from that used a process that took seven layers of applique to complete the portrait. I love how it came out and it captures my Mother just as I think of her.

    Went to a small quilt shop by me looking for 108" wide backing. I have a pre-printed queen size quilt top and I was dumb founded to hear the woman helping me ask me ( how long will it take you to run that up on a machine?).
