From time to time I've mentioned my gratitude over the generosity of my dear friend Helen. I met her oh so many years ago at the NW Suburban Quilters Guild in suburban Chicago.
Despite my two moves to two different states, we've remained in touch. She has an enormous fabric collection....the good stuff.....nothing from Walmart or JoAnne's. She's shared boxes and boxes of batiks, Japanese inspired prints, hand dyed, and lots of black and whites with me. When I say that about 1/4 of my current fabric stash came directly from her I'm not exaggerating.
Helen just completed this stunning quilt. I LOVE, LOVE everything about it, esp. knowing how thoughtful she'd been to combine and utilize as much of these rare (original) Dutch wax batik prints as possible. I'm not sure of the size, but know it's not small....Helen makes BIG quilts. Click on the image to feast on these gorgeous fabrics.
