Not sure if I ever actually looked in the magazine or just saw the cover at my fav haunt, Barnes & Noble and their magazine section. I cannot tell the date from this blurry, enlarged jpeg of the cover.
Not sure of anything but that: the cover of that magazine hooked me. The colors, the simplicity that provides clarity, the idea of negative space in a quilt (a new thought for a non-quilter), and it looked as if it would be FUN to make. In Feb 2011 I made my first fans quilt after the tsunami in Japan as a relief quilt.
|I loved making this quilt so much that I made 3 just the same. |
I know... novice move...
Two were sent to the Tsunami Relief efforts and one I kept.
Many thanks to Bonnie & Camille. You added a new dimension to my life and the lives of family, friends, and complete strangers.
