Collaborating with Jane

Hi Melody,
When I saw your email, my heart skipped a beat. I am so excited!
A year ago, March 20, 2013, I lost my husband of almost 37 years to colon cancer. He was only 58. When I saw the Moon Beams quilt you made in a previous collaboration, I saw so much of our lives. The yarn bombed tree, the six fern trees (we have 6 children, 7 grandchildren), the moon/sun(!). Well, I just love that quilt! Put a house with a swing behind that beautiful tree, a sun and a singing bird, the falling dots and that is a memorial quilt of our family.
However, I don't want to stem the tide of your creative flow, so please let the spirit move you. :)
1. choices of size ---**18"**
2. orientation: ---**square**
3. color scheme: ---**vivid, high contrast** Reds! Yellows! Blues!Greens turquoise, pinks!**
4. surface treatments ---**Hand or machine embroidery** or whatever seems to work :)
5. imagery: --**Trees, leaves/ferns, houses, birds, sun, stripes, dots**
6. fused or pieced. ---**Both** :)

Love, love, love this piece!!

Thank you, Melody for this incredible opportunity!
My best to you and Dave and the dogs as you continue to settle into your lovely new home,
I was so touched by Jane's story about The Moon Beams that I offered to make one just for her, in different colors, and she agreed. SO, we will see what Moon Beams #2 looks like in the coming days.
