Autobiography of a Quilt #1

MaryAnn's Batiks

MaryAnn's Batiks

Dear MaryAnn,

How sweet of you to send me your stash of batiks. There is enough here to make a great quilt. I will save them until something calls me.

I recently made a quilt of important personal materials and one of the fabrics I included was the remnants of the batik I used to make your jacket. Look at the quilt photo and see how many of the pieces you can find scattered throughout the piece:

Way back in 2006 when I made the jacket, I loved the material so much that I hoarded the remnants. How could I throw away those little pieces of beauty? Gathering my personal materials of memory, I found them and knew that I had saved them for this purpose.

Know that you will always hold a special place in my heart through this quilt.

With gratitude,
Louise
