The Modern Quilter of 1933


This beauty was made by Edith Morrow Matthews for the 
1933 World's Fair - Sears competition.
I found it on The Quilt Index here
but you will also find it here.
I think it's totally awesome and very in the
spirit of the modern quilts we are seeing today.
You've all probably seen it already,
but it's new to me.
(I'll show you my sewing soon.)

SSCS 2013 What I sent away...

This is what I sent to Melinda.

The leafy sea dragon is native to the waters of the
south west of Western Australia.

For some of the quilting I repeated shapes of the
elements of the pattern. I used freezer paper templates.

I enjoyed making this art quilt for Melinda.

I also made this little owl ornament for her.
