Design Wall Monday – on Tuesday

What I have been working on lately could qualify for Throwback Thursday.  I started working on these in 2012 and then put them away from a while. I just picked them back up and got the facing done on 9 quilts over the weekend.

Many years ago, my sister wrote a children’s book. I love the story and spent years thinking, “My mom (who is a painter) should really illustrate that for her.”  It wasn’t until I had my daughter and started reading a lot of children’s books myself that it finally dawned on me that I could do the illustrations as quilts. I got started on it and here are the first two spreads.
