Ripley’s Believe It or Not

Ripley's Believe It or Not

A good friend of mine had ended a bad marriage a few years before and had finally found a good woman he loved.  He was so surprised at his good fortune and one day pulled me aside to confide in me, “She even brings me coffee.”  Because he collects a lot of old junk — like the old bath-tub in the picture, I put him in a bath-tub.  She had a a dog named Ripley…so “Ripley’s believe it or not” popped in my head.  Ripley has since died; hence the little angel-dog at the top which was added a few years later.  27″ X 25″. This quilt was given to my friends for Christmas in 2003.  Machine pieced and top-stitched. Hand appliqued and embroidered.  Completed in 2003.
