    no she has no idea, I threaten her mom to chock her if she opened her mouth even with a hint! LOL

    All pictures were printed on fabric. Then I cut them out and pieced the blocks as normal, well as normal as I could LOL

    As I was glimpsing at all the new entrees quickly this morning, I took a double-take on this one! It is so creative and thoughtful! I find each of the blocks so interesting and a wonderful gift for your gd. Had to laugh at seesaw2mch's thoughtful question about disregarding the note at 40! haha -

    You captured the essence of Bob Marley in the colors and shapes of the blocks. Looking closely at each block I can see the love and imagination put into this, well, masterpiece. On some level it's more than a quilt. If you can figure out how, I hope you consider sending these photos to Bob Marley's relatives. I'm sure they would love to see it. There might be a fan club site that could point you in the right direction. Congratulations on a beautiful quilt and job well done.

    I never thought of it that way. I just might have to do that.
    When my daughter told me how much Sara loved his music and the song "One Love" I thought it was a good idea to make this. But as I asked around who this guy was all I seemed to hear was he was big into drugs. I was not that excited about doing the quilt with all that I had hear, so I began doing research on him myself. And yes he did drugs but no more the rest of the music stars at that time. But after reading through his lyrics I could tell he had a good heart and it showed in the music he wrote as well as the quotes he made. That is why I finally decided to do the quilt and if you notice I did add a lot of his quotes as well.
