From There to There to There to Here

From There to There to There to Here was started in Chillicothe, Illinois, and finished in Midland, Michigan.
During it's construction, I lived in four different homes, two different states lost of my dear husband of 48 years.

It started with a piece of very ugly fabric - orange, fuschia, turquoise and green. I pulled fabrics from my stash that went with it and bought a few pieces and proceeded to make the appliques. Patterns were taken from magazines, books and a couple I designed.

This quilt is hand quilted and machine appliqued with the satin stitch. It hung in the 2002 AQS Quilt Show in Paducah, Kentucky.
