For the Bloggers' Quilt Festival (http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/) you are supposed to post a piece that represents your overall favorite work. How do you choose your favorite quilt? That is like asking how you choose your favorite child. Since I have four children, maybe I can be forgiven and choose four quilts...
The Bower Bird is one of my favorite bird quilts. These cheeky Australian birds choose their mates by evaluating their collections... how a bachelor pad is decorated makes all the difference. This piece is in the collection of Diane and David Wright.
The Gates is a recent piece which is made completely of paper. It was a challenge to quilt through the three layers of paper. It is in the collection of a former New Yorker who loves cityscapes.
Two pieces in my collection are represented by the Bethlehem Star and Dog Days of Summer. The star quilt was made for my youngest child when I was on bed rest. That explains the hand quilting... and lastly, my dog Trigger is immortalized in his portrait.
