I've been busy piddling around with little projects like the Spring Fling Round Robin and the Round Robin Bloggers project and miscellaneous Sew-a-Rows, so I'll share a picture of a quilt I made in 1975 as a commission for the Colorado Children's Book Award. I made a block to commemorate each of the 20 nominees, and it is hand appliquéd and quilted. I was paid a whopping $200 plus materials for it.
I purchased several of the books at the awards dinner and had them autographed and I have a paste on label with Dr. Suess' autograph that says "To my favorite quilter, Jan Gibson."
Last I heard, it was hanging in the children's library in Fort Collins.
