Remember my telling you this had to be in a post by itself? Well, here it is and you will see why.
This gorgeous quilt was at the Great Alaska Quilt Show in Anchorage last weekend too. I did not know much about this quilt before the show, but after seeing it and it's creator, I had to do a little online research.
For those who do not know, it was done by a retired dentist and a male quilter. Just goes to show us that boys can play too, and this one set a new bar for us all! My photo makes him look like he is asleep, but not so, he was getting a post card of the quilt to sign for me! Don't you just love his shirt? It is dyed like the backing on the quilt.
Besides it's behemoth size 67" x 183", the fact that it is all 1/2" squares that he cut, numbered and pieced is unbelievable.
Everyone was completely fascinated by this work of art!
You can read more on this HERE, I can tell you it is incredible. I do bow down to this guy. He sure puts me to shame! :-) I am so glad I was able to see this in person. I would not have believed it, if I hadn't!!!
Now on a completely different subject... Don't you just love the beautiful flowers???
Guess all the summer time daylight makes all the difference!
