Welcome to Pink Saturday
Happy New Year to all. I have decided to share my quilted bear with you on the first Pink Saturday of the new year. He is made from a quilt top that was sewn by my grandmother and great-grandmother sometime in the 1930's. I don't know why the top was never made into a quilt. By the time I received it from my mother in the 1970's, it had some very large stains. I made quilted pillowtops for my nieces from the largest unstained sections. I used some of the remaining quilt top to make this bear. He sits on a shelf in my studio and watches over me. He reminds me of my heritage as a quilter and fiber artist.
I don't have one specific project that I will be working on in 2010 but my goal is to be true to myself in my art and go where my creative self leads.
If you would like to see more pink, check out Beverly's How Sweet the Sound. I also enjoy visiting Sue's Collecting in Texas. Please stop by and tell her I sent you.
Have a wonderful 2010.
