Jeannie and I met when we were entering first grade in rural Kansas. Some decades in the subsequent 65 years had more contact than others but she has never left my heart. This piece shows a letter she wrote to me in 1961 after we had graduated from high school. I love the sentence that begins: “Oh, guess what!” I can still hear her saying that.
QuiltToon is 8″ X 10″. It is whole cloth with old letter and envelope printed on fabric. Flowers are machine appliqued. The piece is machine quilted. Completed Aug. 2013.
This was made to enter in the Quilting Arts Magazine “Reader Challenge: Friendship and Devotion.”
