Ok, off my box and on to the quilt show.
This is my revision of "A cottage Garden". This was Morning Stars 1st applique club quilt. We were all to do the same project. This is mine. And I'll let you know a secret, I don't follow the rules.
This is the original pattern. I added a living creature to each of the blocks. I also made the house and HATED it. I thought that the flowers being bigger than the house was too silly and I said it looked like a "Jack & the Beanstalk" house. So guess what? That's what I did.
This was the quilt I gave my favorite cousin. She had been trying to get pregnant for years and finally it happened. I was thrilled for her, and still am.
I went a little crazy with the giants foot. He has a yarny foot. In my imagination, all giants have hairy feet and toes. I stopped at the dirty toe nail. I didn't what the baby to have a foot phobia.
I even composed a silly poem, but it was and is heartfelt. I'm just not a poet.
So the moral of this story is, even an ugly block can turn into something beautiful (at least in my eyes). And speaking of ugly, check out Debbies sunflower (those were her words, not mine).
Take care, Brandie
