Visiting my daughter in Nanjing, China I met her neighbour Carol Johnson (from Michigan), who showed me her collection of nice picture- quilts. Although I had made several traditional quilts, I had never seen Picture Play Quilts before! I was thrilled of these quilts and I decided immediately to make one.
Here it is, the coloured surfaces I doodled by machine, the white fabrics are hand- quilted. I called this quilt "Hanna and Felix," the names of my grand-children in Hamburg, and together with some painted playcards of the illustration of the details, with a selection of initial letters, the names of the portrayed members of our family and a little hourglass to use the quilt as play this will be a nice present, when I go to Hamburg for the next time.
Thanks to you and to Carol for this inspiration,
