I just wanted to share this quilt one more time! Mary Flynn of Quilt Hollow did the fabulous quilting on it and my friend Joan sewed down the binding for me. I have the best friends!
I have been trying to come up with a pleasing name for this quilt. In light of the flaming cheddar fabric I have come up with "High Noon" as in the 1952 cowboy movie, "Burnin' Daylight", as in the 1972 movie, "The Cowboys", with John Wayne. Remember that quote, "We're burnin' daylight"? My current idea is "Prairie Fire", which I think makes the most sense, as it is easy to say and hopefully, to remember. Any thoughts on this? (My husband suggested Blazing Saddles! What can I say, we are cowboy freaks!)
This week I got an email from a customer of mine who sent me a photo of a quilt she made from the Indian Paintbrush pattern. I am always pleased to see how people put themselves into my designs.
Edwina Wagner calls her version Cara's Sunshine Quilt. She made it for her granddaughter who moved from California to Seattle. Having lived in Seattle, I totally understand the need for a sunshine quilt! Well done Edwina! I can see why Cara loves it!
