A Piece of History in a Wonderful Story Quilt-well done!
I met Marilyn Wall in a class at the John C.Campbell folk school a few years ago and after the class one over she took me to her home in South Carolina on the Lake and it was fabulous-just a slice of heaven. Her friend Ann had her husband cook a fabulous French dinner for my 60th birthday and they gave me a hand carved angel I keep on my window sill to look at everyday.
Anyway, Marilyn is a wonderful artist and does faces like no one else in fabric.
This quilt shows she and her husband Kermit and their children and Grand children marking their 50th wedding anniversary. I think it is the most perfect and wonderful story quilt don'r you? Marilyn you deserve a ribbon for this. And as I always say, this quilt will be here for many many years and in 80 years people will know something special about Marilyn and who she loved and something about her life. This is the value of story quilts. You need to do one about YOU.
