(To Marcia: Have you heard that entirely too many times in your life? I bet you have!)
You see, the whole Brady Bunch thing is very fitting for these quilts. When my acquaintance asked for me to make them she said that I could make them however I wanted, but that they had to be identical because they are for sisters and the two of them would fight over them. That's very Brady, don't you think?
Then there are the colors. The quilts were made from little girl homemade dresses--from right around the late 60's. Very Brady again.
|These are two of the dresses that I cut up for the dresdens|
Then there is the fact that they are now in the mail to one of the most talented long arm quilters I've ever seen.
But there is not one quilt, there are two...so there we have Marcia Marcia--no, I don't really want to make a 3rd so it can be Marcia Marcia Marcia.
I really didn't mind making these; just that time got away from me. That's not entirely my fault either. The customer originally wanted photos on the quilt and I waited for those for months. Then she changed her mind, I had to redesign, add some dresdens...but they turned out more beautiful in the end than if they would have had photos. I've decided I am no longer doing any large quilts with photos. They are always more trouble than what it's worth.
Anyway, Marcia, Marcia! Two of these are on their way to your house. I can't wait to see you perform your magic on them!
And for those of you that have no idea what I've talking about...here ya go:
