From the album: BJ's quiltsI made this fun quilt using a vintage Alfred Shaheen panel for MQX's Alfred Shaheen exhibit. I designed and painted the border drawing from his design in the center panel. I gifted this quilt to my brother and his wife in celebration of their fiftieth wedding anniversary. I was fortunate to find exactly the right solid colors for the borders, and so I quilted, then painted the light green border. The dark green border is my first venture into ruler work for a show quilt, since all I did was make a row of touching circles using Lisa Calle's new circle rulers with my Bernina 830. They are hard to see, but I quilted in a frog, a pig, a parrot, and a flying bird in the white background of the central panel and then did a circular twirl fill with that. 36 x 54
