I admire your Zig Zag Quilt on my bed as I wake up in the morning, as I walk past it during the day, and at night as I fall asleep. It never ceases to fascinate me visually offering new discoveries every time my eyes wander over it.

It’s rich visual puzzle. The well-selected stripes and checks cut into nuanced squares and triangles, the paisleys, organic patterns, and the well-placed blue triangles that picks up on all the other colors used throughout add the most effective and surprising dimension to the entire quilt. From a design point of view, it’s masterful!

The image it conjures is that of a craftsman house in Vermont in the late fall. The geometry is the house. At dusk, windows are open a bit to let in the smell of the fallen leaves into the living room with a fireplace. Here’s to smell of roasted chestnuts and cheers to the hearth and friendship with a glass of merlot in hand.

Thank you for your gift of your prize winning masterpiece I treasure it!!!

It is such a pleasure to have my quilt in the home of someone who loves it, Sumi. I feel so honored. I hope it gives you comfort for many years.

The Watermelon Quilt is far more complex beyond its simple geometry and catchy colors. The hot pink and kelly green taste like watermelon sugar. It’s cheerful to the extreme overflowing with love of life, constantly dancing to delight my eyes. All the positive fiesta energies overflow to the reverse side of the quilt with its thoughtful singular star pattern.
