Darla made a large version of my Disappearing Shoo Fly design.
"I could not believe how easy it was to do this quilt. I really think it should
be done as a quick & easy video, and I think people would flock to this
design....Can't wait to quilt this thing, but I have a few more ahead of this in line!"
Wendy sent me this picture of her version of my Disappearing Shoo Fly quilt.
Here's what she had to say:
"Hi!! I am the Australian tourist whose Canadian cousin challenged me
at Drumheller last July to replicate your 'Disappearing Shoofly' in my
own colours. I really appreciated your permission to photograph the quilt
and have regularly checked your website- and will continue to do so. The
colours were inspired by our lovely white beaches with waters that go from
teal to deep blue, plus the colours of desert sand hills. Happy memories."
Last year some time I cut a Jacob's Ladder block into 4 quarters and then did the same with an Ohio Star block. I shuffled the pieces and came up with two new blocks. Then I used the blocks to design a quilt top.
The quilt top deserves a better border than the one I gave it. So I thought it was time I did something about that.
