Early in January 2006 I was suddenly struck with a desire to create a crazy quilt. I had already done scrapbooking and stamping so taking those ideas and applying them to cloth seemed natural to me. I discovered an art quilt group that was located nearby and their deadline for an upcoming exhibit was exactly the motivation I needed to finish the creation. This is a closeup of a portion of the quilt. This quilt is named "Mary's Garden" after my grandmother, and it is on tour with this show PAQA-South ARTQUILTSimages.
