I think she called it Oriental Carpet, it was designed by a woman in Edmonton Alberta, who had a quilt shop at one time. Mary had purchased a kit and taken a workshop.
The quilt reminded Mary of Turkish carpets. She had spent some time travelling in Turkey and had brought home some rugs as souvenirs.
If you look closely at the border fabric, there is a fantastic print that reminds her of the Whirling Dervishs' in Turkey, who perform a trance-like, spinning dance as a form of worship.
So, she chose a panto called "Plush" by Lorien Quilting, which also conveys spinning.
|She used a beautiful Northcott Stonehenge flannel for the backing.|
Mary was so pleased with her quilt, she even shed a few tears, which was a wonderful compliment to me.
