Creating art quilts is how I can be "plaid" in a "striped" world.

Sister Love 15"x15" 2010
My sister Sheila sent me this photo of herself (on the left), and two other sisters, Vicky and Marybeth. I think it was taken in the late fifties. So I am making a small quilt for each of them. I love how putting a photo on fabric gives it a new tactile incarnation. This one includes bits of lace and buttons from our mother's large collection. She was also a fiber artist who probably made the little dresses they are wearing.
