I’ve also published a new block pattern that was inspired by a painting by Cornelius Krieghoff, a painter who is known for his paintings of frontier life in Quebec, Canada. Go to Block of the Month and see May 2013 for the pattern. I saw a quilt that made me think of the painting. It is by Kathie Holland and you can see it here. I checked Kathie’s blog but the quilt was posted in 2009 and it doesn’t appear that her blog goes back that far.
It is a long weekend so I want to get out and have some fun! I'll leave you with a few more close-ups of Anne H (my Mom) embroideries! These are all original designs based on her flower garden. At almost 93 she is still an avid gardener. I find it interesting that she does such pretty, little (3" x 4"), old-fashioned embroideries and also the lively and colourful African quilts and wall hangings!
Goldenrod and one lonely snail
Pink shooting stars (they will be blooming soon)
Until I post again, happy sewing!
