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.
