For Maxine

Functional Quilt, 2017

This quilt is a little tribute to those unknown benefactors that helped you get started in your craft. In my case, somehow heaps of fabric, books, half started projects, and fun little artist's notes fell into my hands from this lady named Maxine who I never met (she wrote her name in her books) right when I started quilting. For the Orlando MQG Unmodern Made Modern Challenge, I used those 80s fabrics, front and back, to make a modern quilt using improv triangles. A little Kona Snow was added for the solid white fields, but that's it. Design inspired by Kathreen Ricketson.
