Lone Star review
But we can't stop yet as that quilt is too sweet and normal for me. Here is a photo of another lone star I found a few years ago in St. Joseph, Missouri. I call it Lone Star Gone Wild. It starts in the usual fashion but then something goes terribly awry. I like to show it to groups and we speculate about just what happened. Bad menopause? Revenge on the original quiltmaker by the next generation? Madness? We will never know but it is something to imagine.
Meanwhile, look at this swell quilt Roseanne made. Now that is orderly.
We are also fortunate she had a hand in this one. It's our guild opportunity quilt for 2010. Chances are being sold for a few more months......

the amazing thing about the "skin" quilt is that it is bound and finished! That was a whole lot of denial, or optimism, or something. Maybe it was meant to be a skin? The star quilts are an important thing in Lakota Sioux, and some other tribes. Maybe it is a cultural pride quilt? Hmmmm.ReplyDelete
