Several years back, my mother gave me a stack of old scarves she had embroidered through the years. She thought I might be able to make a quilt of them. I actually made several – one for her and one for each sister. Here is the one I gave to my sister Susan.
I tried to look at the embroidered areas of each scarf, considering the size and shape of the area, as well as the condition after years of use.
As with many of my quilts, I failed to take photos along the way. This blog (and digital cameras) are helping me change that. I remind you (and myself) of that, as the photos here were sent by my sister. I would have loved to have some that show the details better, but beggars can’t be choosey.
*** Update June 8, 2010—email from my sister states “I finally found where you signed your quilt. The ink is so faint I did not see it. The quilt was pieced by you and quilted by mom and given to me Sept 7, 2000.”
