This was a drawing that my father, Donald Thibodeau, had done while attending Metropolitan Art School and was displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  This drawing is dated Feb. 12, 1948!  My sister Lisa has the original and suggested that I copy it and quilt it for this quilt.  I went to work on it and I'm not real happy with it, but it is what it is!  This quilt is truly a family affair!  My father died on Jan. 7th, 1967 at the age of 45.  I was 4 years old.

Lori, this is beautiful graphic piece with strong powerful use of the positive and negative spaces. What a talented family you have. Have you considered shadow trapunto to capture the bold graphic nature of the flower?  It would still be in character with the rest of the zentangle quilt.

Thankyou Barb and dls!  I already finished the block, but wish now I had done the shadow trapunto!  That really would have made the design standout more than what I did to it!  The wedding is less than a week away!  If I have time, I might consider redoing the block!
