I had such a good time watching this quilt evolve and I am immensely grateful for the experience. When Diana McClun told me she wanted to make a quilt for me with my first fabric collection I was pretty excited to say the least. I learned SO MUCH watching this project take shape and communicating with Diana and Laura at times through the process. I watched one of their quilting video’s during this period, and am still slowly making my way through their first book, Quilts, Quilts, Quilts.
And I am as surprised as some of you that with this experience I have officially been bitten by the quilting bug and have started sewing again, armed with a hand me down Jenome from my late mother-in-law. Diana is amazing and I am grateful for her mentorship as she certainly is that for me, and also for her friendship. A gift to be sure.
And very cool that their quilt is featured in McCall’s Quilting’s July/August Issue in stores now. They are also all very nice there!
How does one really capture the real feeling of a quilt through photographs? Well, I will be spending a lot of time trying to find that out in the next few years. Here are some of my first attempts with this quilt that I will always treasure.
