This is a photo of a quilt that I made for one of my friends who lent me tons and tons of books. I really did owe this woman a lot for her generosity. She has now moved into a newer home and has her very own Sun Room which she turned into a reading room, which I have dubbed....The West Wing Library. After putting in her new book cases she hung the quilt up behind it on the wall. I was shocked at how well it looked together with the bookcases.
I have different things appliqued on the quilt but the majority of it is all pieced. From a distance it looks like a bookcase up against a flowered wall, with feet on the bottom and a fish bowl on top. There is a seashell on a stack of books and a jar of butterflies on one of the shelves. There is also an angel on one of the shelves...something she collects.
It was so much fun to make and think of the person that was going to receive it.
