The video of the quilt construction can be seen here.
More photos here.
This is the entry in the book for my block. I hope you can read it
if not the entire book with all the blocks and their stories is available for download here (3.65KB)
It is wonderful to read the stories behind the quilt blocks.
It has been wonderful to play a small part in the great project.

still creating- actually had a few large projects last year so I will try to keep up & catch up at the same time.
During that time I have realized the value of story. like the song says 'everyone's got a story'. and that is becoming more important to my work.
this is a 12" square I made for the Greenbelt Quilt of Possibilites to be unveiled at the Greenbelt 5th anniversary Celebration at the Royal Ontario Museum Wed Mar 3.
It was from a small family B&W photo of my Dad with his truck on the Holland Marsh. The cab of the trunk is from the photo enlarged & printed on fabric. I coloured it with inks. This truck was red but I remember our next truck which was larger and was green. the green monster is what my Dad called it.
I'm really please how it turned out and am looking forward to seeing it in the finished quilt.
good to be back
