Kathy's Treasure

Kathy's Treasure






TREASURE - What a wonderful choice for our first Theme in this brand new year !
I had many thoughts about how I wanted to ‘articulate’ this theme, and narrowed those thoughts and ideas down to a few that are so important to me.    God,  Family,  Country,  State…..

To me, our Dear God is represented in everything that surrounds us and is with us.   He has provided us with this beautiful planet we call Mother Earth.    In all her glory, Mother Earth provides us with an exquisite environment in which to live.  I chose to represent this environment with beautiful flowers.

Our Families are our first teachers, and from them we learn respect, appreciation, and a reliance on our God to guide us through life.  My truly blessed Grandmother taught me about Gardens, and as I toil away in the dirt, I often imagine she’s smiling at me, and is proud that I carry on her traditions.  I learned well from her !
“GOD BLESS AMERICA !”   Our beautiful Flag that “so proudly we hail,” makes me think about all that’s happened, historically, to make it possible for us to enjoy the Freedom(s) and opportunities we have in this amazing country we’re blessed to call home !
And “Texas Oh Texas,”  what a grand State to live in !    I was born in Texas, and even though I lived in California during my growing-up years, and then in Alaska for 35 years, I am a Native-Born Texas Woman, and am darn proud of that !   In this quilt, I think the Fancy Boot just about says it all  !

For this Quilt, I machine appliqued all the elements to the background fabric using Madeira Monofilament thread.   I free-motion quilted the background fabric to give this quilt greater depth.   AND – The Fabric on the back of this quilt….  Well -  it pretty much speaks for itself !

  5. This quilt makes me smile! Love the imagery that you have chosen to depict some of what you treasure. Also love the contrast between the boot and flowers/flag ( hard/soft/flowing ), topped off with the Texas fabric backing.
