I finally finished the Watercolor Quilt I started months ago. I’m really pleased with the results. I call it “The View from My Sister’s Window”.
This quilt depicts the view from my sisters window as I last saw it. This quilt means a great deal to me as it is a Memory Quilt. I lost my sister just one year ago this past Sunday. She, like many others, fought a hard battle with Cancer which she ultimately lost.
But I promised her that I would not dwell on the pain, but rather remember the life she held so dearly.
This was the view presented to us while we sipped our morning coffee in her apartment in Boise Idaho. Imagine waking up to this each morning!
Darby really loved to watch the Geese in the lake and on the river that flows just behind the apartment. So naturally, I had to include them.
The border is a material that looks like natural wood grain, even though her window sill was white, I thought this looked better. It measures 94″x 72″.
This was a tremendous amount of work and I don’t know that I will make another, but I’m truly glad I made this one. Each time I look at it I will remember my dear sister and our wonderful last visit in Idaho in the Autumn of her life.
