A Journal Quilt: Memories of a California Easter
We brought the pot of hydrangeas home, and we also purchased a mixed bunch of flowers at the farmers' market on Saturday. The vase of flowers in the quilt picture above is rather surreal, since the pansies (of course a small flower) are huge compared to the roses and the daisies! But I adore pansies, which remind me of both my father and my grandmother, so I wanted them to be prominenent. I used a shiny voile fused to some white fabric to try to give the effect of a shiny pottery vase; this doesn't show up so well in the photo. One photo from the Easter visit that I particularly love depicts Locke beside the pot of hydrangeas that Kathy and Roman brought home from the church. As always, click to enlarge the photos, particularly the one below of our six year old Locke on Easter Sunday!
