A Quilt of Many Colors

TV & stuff 007

As I continue to filter through an apartment filled with belongings, I realize I have many personal pieces from my dad. This quilt is one of those pieces, a work of art. Dad was not only a home chef, a decorative painter, a rosemaler, and a tailor…he also pieced together this quilt of many colors with a sewing machine and his two talented hands.

    What an extraordinary and talented man he was, M-J ! What a bloke ! I’m filled with amazement and admiration … and also with growing comprehension of your devotion to him and his memory. You come from a good line, my dear …

      You know, M-R, it took me awhile to realize all of dad’s talents. It comes with age. 😉 Anyhow, I would like to think he gave me at least a portion of his talent genes since he also gave me his sweet tooth.

        It’s remotely possible you got something other than that from his genes .. Just faintly, you know … 🙂

    It’s beautiful, Mary. Truly a work of art. It sounds like your Dad was a very talented and special guy. I hope the move is going well. Hugs,

      It is beautiful Cathy. Unfortunately, it has to be stored away for now…not enough room for all of my personal treasures.

      I have many of his works…plates, a clock, a framed mirror, a child’s rocking chair that belonged to his mom, a pouting chair, stool, other miscellaneous items. He sold quite a few of his pieces when mom and dad had to sell their house, but I kept what I could.

  3. I know very little about quilting, but I believe that this pattern is quite complex and uses advanced techniques. It’s amazing. Thanks for sharing.

    Not only is it very beautiful, but it’s origins are particularly special. You have a magnificent souvenir. Your dad must have been quite the talented person!
