I marvel at the way some stories have comedown through the centuries. Charon, the boatman, paid with a coin. Did this person indeed cross the river or pass by and go over the bridge?
The library beckoned last week,and two books came home. One was
The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters, by Sherri Lynn Wood, I read this and decided it was not for me.
However the second one was a winner. Great designs, fabulous fabrics, and this skull was the first to be made.You could do a single skull or make more and have a wonderful quilt.Here are all the quilts inside,look at those two different log cabins.Can you see the single skull, next to the whole quilt? I used bright pink, similar to the colour there.
He flew on his broomstick, hanging in the Weeping Silver Pear tree, that we planted in memory of Hugh’s Dad . Waved in the wind, after all the pins were removed and some actual quilting done. Straight lines in the skull, some FMQ in the eyes ( not easy) and a Bernina stitch # 160, in the outer fabric, I varied the length as the lines went to the outside edge, to mimic waves in the water.
The red eyes showed up in this last photo.
He might be on his way to another home later in the year.After all, every good skull needs a loving place to rest.
Quotation of the day, author unknown
“ Clouds might come into your life,
with rain or storms,
but they will always colour the sunset with happiness”
