Genius or Insanity??? You Decide!
My college roommate (we are now AARP material) sent me this photo of her latest creation. OMG! I am not sure if back in 1974-1975 I was living with a genius or, if unbeknown to me...a future insane quilt individual??? What I do know, this is absolutely beautiful! She was such a studious roommate (cough, cough, cough) majoring in ??? anthropology I believe. I on the other hand changed my major regularly.
The reason she makes such spectacular quilts and I do not is that I am allergic to paper piecing and batiks...I have a doctor's note and an epi pen to be used if I should some how succumb to an anaphylatic reaction. I even get a little short of breath looking at this photo. Every year at the Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show I look for her quilts. I don't have to worry about finding them or my allergies because I can never get close enough due to the large crowd standing in front of her quilts with their mouths dropped open!
Anyhoo, I guess I'll get back to working on my UFO's...none are genius material but insane...that is another question.
