Recently, I was sifting through a box of old photos — some dating back to the late 1970s — looking for something in particular which I did not find, but then discovered that I had already found it somewhere else.
In the course of my journey back through time, I came across this photo.
On the back was written "1988," in handwriting that somehow looked more like my mother's than mine. My best guess is that I sent this photo to her, she labeled it, and at some later time it was returned to me.
I pondered for several minutes, trying to remember who I made this quilt for. To the best of my recollection, it seemed that I had made it for the younger son of my friends, Janien and Scott. I sent Janien a message through Facebook, describing the quilt. She wrote back that, indeed this was the quilt in question.
She also reminded me that I had made a quilt for her older son as well. "Funny thing is that to this day Spencer's favorite
color is red and Trevor's blue. I wonder if having those quilts in their
rooms had anything to do with that."
I really like the illusion of three dimensionality in this design. If I were to make it again, I would extend the squares into the border to complete them.
