    My Wall Hanging in the NH quilt show!

    I took some pictures of my quilt at the quilt show in Nashua, NH this weekend. It's a wall hanging I made for my son who lives in Switzerland. I used pictures I took while visiting him last spring to make the Matterhorn quilt.

    How lovely! LOL here because when we were in Switzerland, we never saw the Alps. Either cloudy below or cloudy above. Need to go back and see them for real next time.

    Thank you! I didn't make it for the show I made it for my son. But I'm happy that they accepted it. It was fun being an exhibitor.

    What a lovely landscape quilt. I have been to the Alps and I think you depicted them very well. Marvelous job. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Your wall hanging is beautiful. What a good idea to use pictures that are from memories of being their. It should mean a lot to him.
