The theme of Linda Blaize's book (Jonaca's mom) is "What's in your backyard?". I LOVE gardening and have two patios plastered with potted plants. Jim and I chose this particular apartment partly because of the two massive patios. Jim knows that I need this kind of space to pursue a hobby that makes me very content. Anyway, the beautiful tree and chinese lantern on my lower patio inspired this quilt piece. In fact, I told Heather and Becky that I was so inspired by the theme that I think I'll go on to create an entire quilt with trees and palms and birds!! You can't tell from the pic, but the blue background is a gorgeous silk piece, so nice la! Anyway I'm all buzzed because I haven't wanted to start a quilt project since we've been overseas (this is our 10th year). Thanks Linda for your great theme and I hope I'll be able to follow through with a quilt!
