Here is a sampling of quilts I have made over this past year. The featured photo is our house with my neighbor’s home in the background, one of the first I ever made. This one to the left is from a photo of the wall in our kitchen. Our house dates from the 1770’s and I love to feature it in my work. The pictures on this wall are scanned fabric copies of photos I took of the actual ones that hang there (hope that makes sense!)
I also made one for my mother-in-law of the house she grew up in. It was actually built by her father. The only pictures she had of it were black and white, so I worked from her memories to get the colors right. It was built out of redwood and her room was the converted garage on the left.
I am in the process of making a series of quilts of the doors of New Windsor, my adoptive hometown. Founded in 1797, there is a lot of history here. The main road in our town is one of the many ‘Roads to Gettysburg’; both the Union and Confederate troops passed through. The homes I have featured here were sitting at the side of the road there when the boots of those men trudged through our town. I don’t know, just think that’s neat!
