There has been a lot on the Net about a blind quilter in Texas -- but she isn't the only one! I have a blind quilter friend who just posted this to our list.
I am posting it here with her permission as well as what she wrote:
This is the first quilt I have made entirely by myself since losing my sight. I cut all the pieces with my Accuquilt. I picked the colors with my color identifier and the help of my daughter who described the print if any. Let me know what you think.
After I requested permission to share her triumph she answered:
I would like you to do that but would you include this description my granddaughter sent me when she saw it. She is in Florida and going to a graphic arts university there. She sent this back when she saw the photo. "Hi Gram! I love the quilt, it reminds me of a woodland lake so much! The colors in the middle look like a lake with long cat-tails growing along it, and then the brighter squares around it remind me of the forest and all it's vegetation. I really like the colors that you chose, and the layout is beautiful. You never cease to surprise me with your work! Thank you for sharing this with me.
Her words express what I was trying to depict with my design and color choices. Thank you so much for your comments and please do post it. Hugs, JoAn
