This was a special goodbye quilt to that beautiful person on the left at the top of the page. I've taught with Brenda for almost 25 years at our elementary school. Everyone on staff signed their names on the "rays". All the fabric is my hand dyed fabric with the exception of the batik "love" fabric. The center is quilted with crazy machine stitches, going round and round in a circle. The center is pieced and all the rays are fused on. Eric Carle I'm looking at you! Everyone thought it looked like an Eric Carle collage. Needless to say she loved it!
