Ever since I spotted this quilt, designed by Cheri Allen, in the March/April 1999 issue of Quiltmaker I was smitten. I couldn't sleep that night, as I thought of this wonderful design, and the next morning I hurried out and purchased the fabric. It stayed on display in the hoop as I slowly hand quilted it. I loved this display so much I have never placed it on a wall.
I've always loved the scripture of the Lion lying down with the lamb. But I've never believed the adage of March coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb. It doesn't work that way here in the Rocky Mountains. We got snow in May this year.
I loved this shot with the quilt in the background and my 90-year old mom holding one of my sixteen grandchildren. This is one of her 27 great-grand children. With all those wonderful grand children in our lives, there is always much to celebrate.
I felt like the quilt made a perfect background for this candid photo.
It is by far my most favorite quilt from Quiltmaker.
