Quilts from photographic inspiration.


My Aggies.

As I write this I’m listening to a one finger concerto by an almost  2 year old and  3 year old.
I would like to say its thrilling, but… really, I’m being patient and thinking how clever our offspring are.
Concentration is just a little difficult in this situation. 

Each year I marvel at the Agapanthus in my garden. I love the way they come into bud. Its the most delightful shape. Then suddenly it bursts into life. I love the purple ones, they have more impact than the white ones.
Some species of Agapanthus are commonly known as lily of the Nile (or African lily in the UK )
Agapanthus means summer to me. Our street is lined with them.
So while babysitting today, we photographed the Aggies as we affectionately call them.


So my images are just a little different


Realistic Aggies.

In my next blog, I will share how I designed and created these quilts and other Aggies quilts.

    I always love your illustrations and the colors you use.
    Agapanthus is a favorite of mine. Here in New York our Aggies are waiting patiently for May to arrive while they wait in my cool, dim basement. Safe from the freezing temps outside. It’s always a thrill come August when they send up odd shaped buds.
    Have a great Christmas with your grandies! So cute and worth all the ruckus.

      Gail, the feeling is mutual, I love your quilts and posts.
      As for the Grandies, I’m in danger of overdoing it… but I just can’t help it.
      Have a Great Christmas.
