Oh, Frances!  You used the word "FAB" and does that take me back - to like, 1964!~  You want to know what I think would make this quilt REALLY "FAB"??? If it came with the FAB FOUR wrapped inside of it, just for (or should that be:  "Just 4 - ")  me!  .......sighs.......[ lost in a cloud of her girlhood dreams, Bella could almost hear the faint strains of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand' , and "She Loves You, yeah yeah yeah!]   :D

Frances:

I think, i may have found an answer, a quilter called Pauline Ineson is bringing out a new book in May called 3d flowers, dont know if i will manage them but i am going to give it a try.

 

I saw it at a quilt show thought if i did in Batiks with brighter colours it would be ok, what you cant tell from the picture is that the flowers are 3d on the quilt.

lots of love

Francesxx

Frances,

That quilt is a masterpiece!

Frances,

That is an absolutely beautiful quilt and would be great for your project. I will certainly be looking for her new book to come out.

Gosh, Frances, I WISH I had been 3 in 1964!  But I was 11, and Paul McCartney was my first big crush.  And I will let you in on a secret:  this is not fantasizing!  Why, Paul came here to Boulder, Colorado, in 1994 and gave a concert JUST FOR ME, and 34,000 other people came to watch!  (oh, and p.s., I will be 60 March 27.  I don't think I will ever be able to "retire"....  so the dreams are what keeps me going...)  hugs!  xxo, :D

I agree the quilt with the 3D affects would be perfect.  No matter what you choose she will love it because it is a gift from you!

The Quilt Daddy:
And then in 1969 I disobeyed my parents (I was 18) and lied to them that I was going to see a friend in NYC but instead went to Woodstock. I might of gotten away with except a photographer took my picture and plastered it all over the front page of the local paper in my hometown of Philadelphia.

HA..... Richard that sounds like something that would happen in a sitcom!

My Mom was developoing blindness the last 10 years of her life. She eventually could only see shadows, but that was the last year of her life. Prior to that, she could see spots and had to move her head around to read, play the piano, etc.  However, the quilt she loved most was the most colorful --- I used lots of bright colors with black and white contrast in large block formats.  The last quilt was very simple, large block stars.  I used bamboo batting which she especially loved because of its softness.  Hope this helps.

Hi Frances,

Just curious, how goes the 3-D Quilt?  Lovely thought, making something that  beautiful for your Mom.  I could see it in bright flower colors, with a very light background, if she sees lights best.  If not, black or very dark blue would really make the flowers stand out, in both senses.  I would love to see pics and get periodic updates.
