CustomsF131
I grew up with quilts, all hand quilted and soft.
AddNotesF132
I was taking a landscape class from Susie Weaver when I saw a photo of Frank Lloyd Wright window wanting to be a quilt. I wondered if I could put a landscape under the window. The window (top surface of this quilt) is made of voile with the leading of straight-cut broadcloth sew in (as opposed to bias tape appliqued on top). The desert landscape is underneath as though one is looking out the window. I appliqued hollyhocks as they were a favorite of Mr. Wright. The entire project is hand quilted.
