When I heard the challenge word "heirloom", I immediately thought of tomatoes...maybe because I am totally consumed in my garden right now. Even though I had two months to do this challenge, I ended up making it from 9-midnight last night, July 31st. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, being tired, having machine problems, etc..... uggg. Anyway, this piece is now hanging in my laundry room and will remind me of juicy flavorful tomatoes all year long.
I made this 12 x 12" quilt for the Art Squared group. I started with a 9 patch and cut, then sewed, cut, then sew, etc. It was fun to see the pattern that emerged. The quilting went fast and then sewing on all the neat flat beads was fun.
I worked with Rebecca in Cardiology in Bozeman. She just had her first baby and didn't know the sex so I tried to make a generic baby quilt. It came out kind of girlish so I'm glad she had a girl! I love the flannel back.
