My husband & I spent an exciting month in South Africa in March, 2009. We saw and photographed many fascinating animals. This quilt includes some of my favorites. It was challenging choosing an arrangement for the photos and then figuring out how to construct the quilt so the pictures were not just in rows. A photo quilt is really fun and it brings back great memories.
Last year my husband, John, had emergency triple by-pass heart surgery. This quilt is dedicated to him and symbolizes his weakened heart coming out into the light.......now strong and happy! I included lots of love in every one of the 1,063 pieces!

My neighbor Linda is starting chemotherapy. I had made this quilt after finding only 1/2 yard of the poppy print (large outer triangles) at the Pine Needle. When Linda got sick, I knew this was for her.
It's about 55" square....a nice size for sitting on the lounge chair in the backyard and taking to her chemo treatments.
