Wow...the 20 blocks are done! This one may seem a little weird, but I'll explain.
I think of my daughter as the bride, so I wanted some block to represent her family. I drew out the three of us with a quilt on a quilting frame in front of us. It seemed too modern for the quilt. Ola thought of the old portrait idea. I thought I could put an old treadle sewing maching in the foreground, maybe with a folded quilt on it. Then Ola had the idea of me coming out of the portrait, sewing on a quilt top. She repositioned Steve's arms to surround both of us girls. Ta-da!!
So, it is a little unusual, but really captures us for the most part (I did a little "quilting liposuction" on myself...hee-hee...artistic license!!).
I portrayed Riley as about 6 years old, her head stuck in a book, which is her usual pose.
I was watching the women's figure skating tonight while trying to finish...man was THAT ever fantastic! I was constantly digging through my sewing clutter for the tissue box!
Now on to putting the entire center together!!!
