Nova's Correspondence Quilt
Posted by John
Prolific sewist and modern quilter Nova Flitter (great name!) recently blogged about the "correspondence quilt" she has been working on in collaboration with her mother.
Nova, who lives in Australia, and her mom, who lives in the UK, have been sticking small scraps of red & white fabrics into their letters to one another over the past several months. In addition, they've been working on small redwork pieces representing the special things they love and have special or personal meaning to them.
The embroidered pieces and the shared fabrics have become this amazing patchwork quilt top, patiently awaiting its final sashing pieces before being carefully & lovingly hand-quilted.
What a beautiful and meaningful piece of art, sure to become a family heirloom. Thanks for sharing your story, Nova!
