Consider the Lilies

I found this quilt on WebShots, and thought it was absolutely gorgeous… it is by Frances Murphy, Brewster, MA 2nd place, appliqued bed quilts in the Vermont Quilt Festival, 2005. Wow! This photo is too tiny to do it justice. To see it in its larger size, please go to this page. Loving the quilt, I looked on the Internet for more of her work, hoping to find a blog. Sadly, I learned that Frances passed away in October of 2005. Another of her quilts can be seen at the link above.

The picture to the right is the top left corner “kite” of my DJ quilt. The original by Jane Stickle was pieced, but I chose to applique mine. The white lines have been put on the photo so you can kind of see the actual shape of the block. I allowed a lot extra on the edges… just incase!

I had another little block I was going to post this morning, but last night when I pressed it I also took my best scissor and trimmed the seam allowances to their scant 1/4 inch width. Well, everything was looking GREAT… until that last slice went OOPS and sliced a little chunk from one of the side patches. So, until I replace that piece, it won’t get posted. Don’t you hate it when things like that happen?
