And now, I had better introduce:
This particular little quilt was finished on New Years Day, 2005. I call it "Monograms" because the design is made up of MJH (my initials) and those of my husband (IH). He is a very special person whom I love dearly and I had wanted to make something that could symnbolise our partnership. (We recently celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary. A quiet meal for two in our favourite restaurant.)
The quilt, which measures just 16 and a half inches by 14 inches, hangs in our bedroom.
The fabric I used for the centre initial "I" and the surrounding MJHs came from the fabric used to line a box holding two lovely champagne flutes (glasses). The glasses reside in the glass cabinet in the kitchen now. The box holds fabric scraps.
The quilting around the outside is a repeated design of stylised daisies, the MJH motif and also the IH design.
