My Granddaughter, Elizabeth, loves peace signs and symbols from the flower-power era. So, when she said she wanted a peace sign quilt, I found some cute kid fabric and went to work. I created the peace sign blocks on paper and printed them off on fabric...ditto, for the large flower. I decided to work them in with a stack of blocks created from striped fabric in two different color ways - one bright and one darker. The bright ones really put the punch in "power". I decided to create another quilt for the back so her work, a self portrait and two peace symbols, would be featured there. Needless to say, I like her blocks better than mine and I now wished I would have put them on the front! For some reason, I think of Cherry Blossoms when I look at the front.
Now to finish Abby's. It's been waiting patiently for a border for several years and if I do not get busy, she will grow out of it! Does this sound familiar?
