Betty made this Cat Quilt for her hairdresser, Ashley.
Here’s another of my wife Betty’s quilts. Betty gives most of her quilts to relatives and friends, but this one is staying in our home, since it was designed to hang on the wall we see coming down the stairs.
There are artefacts in these images that come from the process of straightening and evening the original photos, which had been taken from above on our kitchen floor, and suffered from the inevitable foreshortening. I personally think that the resulting distortions are quite pleasing, and lend a folk art cast to them.
I’m going to start adding photos of my wife Betty’s quilts to the blog. Here’s the first one. This is her most recent quilt. She’s finished all the piecing, and it’s ready to be sent out for quilting.
