Some of these prints were brought from the US in 1994, when I took my daughter there to meet my "American Family".
Some of you may know I´ve been an AFS exchange student back in the 60´s, hosted by a lovely family,living in Ohio. That´s when I saw snow and quilts for the first time. My American Mom has quite a few beautiful handmade pieces and I don´t have to close my eyes to practically see them on the rack she used to keep them. I wish to learn how to quilt real good so I can send her a Made in Brazil quilt. I think that will be nice and´ll be happy to do it.
My daughter was 4 years old when we went to Ohio first and then Disneyworld. This should explain my having bought some of the prints. I didn´t work on them until now, though. We say "objects chase their owners", here in Brazil. I´ll be happy when these objetcs find theirs. It´s been a long long way since they exist and I have been keeping them. It´s about time for them to go.
But, the photo above doesn´t show all my UFOs.
Not at all.
I have worked on an imported print, which maybe will look "out of date" to some of you, but looks quite new and special to me. I have been stitching it patiently and the more I stitch the more I like it.
The stitching makes it look even more puffy and beautiful.
I like it so much I´m not sure I´ll be able to sell it after it´s finished.
Is there a fair price for something one likes a lot and has put the best of one´s energy into,
night after night?
What do you think?
