Jackson School Quilt at Evergreen and Jackson School

This quilt is about this space, this intersection. I have to pass it to go just about anywhere..  and its the urban growth boundary line. Suburbs on one side; working farms on the other. Its part of what makes Oregon a great place to live, this spot is less than 2 miles from the city center of Hillsboro Oregon, the county seat of Washington County. (and the spot where I was married) I love living here.
When the breeze played across the wheat I decided to make a quilt about it.
This puppy is a large queen and we use it on our bed.
Those three circles in the border ( see them upper left) are an homage to the light and are tula pink lady bugs.
The binding is a lovely italian shirting that is silky, strong and much like Liberty.
I quilted in the year and included little details just for my Dear Husband. This is our Fifth Year in our home and I wanted to make him a present that reflected our happy home. Our happy life. I'm so grateful. I hadn't made him a quit since Xmas 2007 (when I was a beginner) and really he deserves much better.
Duh sorry .. Did I mention this has always been, from the very beginning, a gift for my husband?
Quilters Rock!
and so do their SOs.
