Our Quilt Patience Goes To California

Good Day,

Our quilt Patience (Q42) now has a new home in California.



Patience was accepted and sold at auction at the 126th Annual American Psychological Association (APA) in San Francisco, California. Our donation was to and on behalf of the APA LGBT Division.

And now Patience has made its way to its new home in California.

You can read our notes and thoughts regarding our design and construction of Patience on Quilts SB in 2010.

"Hope" - Our Cranes Project

Good Day,

Andy and I are amazed at Marijke van Welzen's work on the Cranes Hope Coat.

Cranes Hope Coat
Marijke Van Welzen, Andy Brunhammer
Jim Smith
2018

Marijke and her husband just delivered the Coat.

Andy Brunhammer and I created the Crane blocks, sent them to Marijke in the Netherlands where she created this magnificent coat.

We are enthralled with her work.

It will be included as part of our “Hope – Cranes Project” presentation and display in early 2019.

Got to find a mannequin for the Cranes Coat's display.

Here are some additional preliminary images.



The first step for our Cranes Quilt 12.40, the outline quilting has begun. The quilting design has been drafted. Something different.


Each Crane block in Cranes Quilt is a 4-inch block.

This is the 6th quilt of the Orange Set.
