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!
