My mother-in-law died this past March. I am making this quilt for her dear friend Peggy. It is the second in a series. The first quilt I made for her dear friend Renee.
When Barbara was still well enough to communicate and interact I cut pieces for a churn dash block in solids and one print. I would visit and place them on a table and she would move the pieces around (often with my assistance I wish I had thought of it before) until she found a design that was pleasing to her. As she moved the pieces she would tell stories about them. I didn't always understand what she said but what she did say repeatedly was "I could just eat color."
I Could Just Eat Color #1
When I think of Barbara I think of color blues in particular. She wore many shades of blue and she had the bluest eyes.
