Collaborating with Barb

Barb felt her husband needed ideas for her Christmas gift, so she thought of having a quilt made just for her.
 "Ok I have been doing a lot of looking/ thinking and I have made a decision.  My husband would love to buy me a quilt, the size can be about 30 x 25" .    I really like the Treehouse series. My favorite colors are in the #1,3,5 and 7. But go ahead and do your thing b/c I trust you".
For me, this WILL be a challenge since the original size of these quilts was in the 15" range, or 1/4 the size requested. O, I can do it, but I will have to keep the whimsy and scale of the originals or it will look wrong.
On the other hand, Barb's living room, where it will eventually hang, is YELLOW. So I am pumped!

  1. I can hardly wait to see it! When you're finished with all the requests the quilts would make a fabulous cyber-exhibit. I'd love to see them all in one spot with short descriptions of what was requested.

  2. The treehouse series was always my favorite too! It will be exciting to see what you will do with the bigger size.

  3. I am certain that you can do it! Pushing your own personal envelope will be a good challenge and perhaps it will help you move to another place in some aspect of your creating! :)

  4. Oh, my, these are just beautiful. Whimsical, magical in detail. Your contribution to the beauty of the work is epic in scope. Jerilynn

  5. Umm, that word was supposed to be WORLD.
