Melissa Wehrle’s Darling QuiltJul 1st, 2011 | By admin | Category: Sewing Circle News
This quilt makes me laugh. If I could quilt I believe I would quilt something like this. She used my painting The Sunday Stroll. With my permission which I appreciated. My painting…
And Melissa Wehrle’s adorable quilt.
A closer view.
Look how funny the animals are walking around especially this cow.
I just love, love, love the quilt!
Melisa’s letter to me…
A couple months ago I wrote for permission to show a quilt with your design featured in the middle and you asked for a picture when I was finished. This was a round robin quilt challenge by my quilt guild and I had never done one before. The rows with the triangles were part of the challenge where quilt guild members (only 5 participated) would do a specific assignment like half square triangles etc for their row. I added the plain borders to increase the size and then added more creatures to add interest. It was my first attempt at quilting it myself on a home machine which was very challenging but at least I think I’m improving.
I really love your designs. They are fun and whimsical. Thanks so much. Melissa Wehrle
