Recently I had ‘luncheon’ with some former coworkers. The four of us have gone our seperate ways but still keep in touch. We met at a large grocery store that as its own restaurant. I could sing the praises of this trend but that would be another blog. I will say that our meals were excellent.
We talked of what we were currently doing. Qur quilting and the quilting world in general. We spoke of the Houston Quilt Festival – 2 of us are going this year. We even had some show and tell. I think the few people near us enjoyed this too.
‘Jane’ bought a quilt that her husband had chosen the fabric for and asked her to make with, the ‘Roy Rogers’ collection. The quilt is inspired, her interpretation of a box television. She used fabric with a wood grain print for the television frame. Black and gray fabric for the TV knobs and for TV screen the focus fabric of the collection.
Scatter about the ‘floor’ area were qpplique horses shoes framing vingettes of the collection’s fabrics. The border was completed with a cowboy print fabric. What a talent she has and a wonderful tribute to the memories of our youth.
