Quilt for Mary Kerr!
I am tickled to have finished a quilt that will be added to a traveling exhibit called “Quilt As Desired”, curated by Mary Kerr. She gave me this vintage top last November after I met her at this very exhibit in Kansas City.
Ironically, I had just put on my own vintage top that looked very similar to Marys….
So it took me awhile to get hers on the frame. I let my own become the experiment!
One of my new, favorite “rough draft” ideas is to take regular kitchen plastic wrap and tape it over my design. Then I use a sharpie and draw my design on top. Works great, just don’t let there be any holes in the plastic wrap!!!
Some days I get a little help from my granddaughter, Juniper. I think one day she’ll use my quilts as a fort!
And the back is a mix of mostly vintage fabrics…..
And after 56 hours and a couple of weeks on the frame, TA DA!!!!
You can see the schedule for this exhibit here http://www.marywkerr.com/quiltasdesired.html and it begins in Baltimore, Maryland, this weekend March 6-8. It is an exhibit worth seeing! Enjoy!
