My Lilly Poppet came on line today. She isn't often available, too busy having fun. It's good to hear that she is happy. Last year I made this quilt for her. The story of how it came to be is below the photo.
"During our annual home leave trip, Elizabeth, my daughter, went shopping in Manchester with a friend. She treated herself to a poster and was extremely happy with it. She loved how it looked like it was moving. She carefully carried it through the airport on the way home to Portugal. Unfortunately, she left the poster at the gate as we borded the plane. She was very upset with herself. I remembered that I had a pattern book with a similar design in it. 'Triangle Free Quilts' by Judy Hopkins. I searched through my fabric stash and found the exact same colours as the poster. The greens are mostly hand dyed fabrics.
I called the quilt 'The Lost Poster'. Elizabeth was thrilled with it. It is just like the original poster".
