I’ve titled this quilt,
Puff Flowers for Ruby Mae.
Ruby Mae is my paternal grandma who has lived her long life in Red Lodge, Montana, a small town of about 2000 people. She has always been a bright and cheery presence and has wonderful stories to share.
As I was making these flowers, I was holding her in my mind. Her vision and memories are shifting, requiring the boldness and clarity that this quilt depicts for best comprehension.
It carries with it the bold spirit of the western pioneer women and the blessings of deep grandmother’s love. She would be honored to learn her influence has spread into your home and the lives of those you love.
This quilt will be on sale and available to see at the
at the Hands Across the Valley Quilters Guild show
in April 2015.
