Joyful Quilting

 This quilt is for my little boy.  It is time to replace the one we gave him when he left the crib and moved into a big bed, the one with cars and trucks on it.

 It is going to be in the room with this painting, which is my adaptation of an illustration from a Russian fairy tale, "The Firebird."


 The quilt makes me happy the way this beautiful painting by Wendyll Brown makes me happy, every day when I look at it.

 And the quilt has something to say to these abstract pieces of mine, which are full of the exuberance of vibrant color.


Now, if I can just find Minky in Europe, to back the quilt.  My son requested it specially!

Love it--on a side note I think you can find minky on fabric.com and they'll ship to Europe. I send them an email and usually have a reply within 24hrs (requesting shipment to England.) ♥

Hi Beth, it's been a while since I dropped by. I love the vibrance and colors in these pictures. If there is a color of minky that you are looking for specifically let me know and I can send you some or some sample slips to chose from. Take care.
