You can tell a lot about someone by their quilts. Bold and sassy or soft and subtle, personalities shine through each fabric choice.
You can tell that imagination is one part of us that is never bound.
You can see the wheels turning as they create something from nothing.
What could have been discarded is now a treasure.
(Scraps from the Chain, Chain, Chain quilt now become a new quilt of their own!)
No second guessing here. Every woman experiences the same process- their eyes see, their mind melds and their heart speaks.
The result is a stamp of individuality on the paper of sameness.
I wonder what they will do with this?
*Remember the Miss Mary's Charm School post? Well, I think I have made you wait long enough for the reveal! The pattern Mary chose is called Butter Cake, a luscious layer cake pattern. (Hence the photo of the Sara Lee butter pound cake!) It is a sweet pattern with a ton of possibilities.
Here is Mary's finished top. Isn't it lovely? The colors are sublime- soft pastel paisleys melt away letting the teal butterflies fly to the front.
