"The Secret"




This is the 8x10 quilt that I made over the weekend. The theme is "The Secret"..meaning that we incorporate a secret pocket with something removable.....the 1st photo is the bluebird in the pocket...the second is the bluebird and heart outside of the pocket...and the 3rd is a close shot of the bluebird with heart....I got my huge box of fabric out of the closet and just started to lay pieces down......I also used pieces of old vintage lace , ribbon and buttons...I plan on making lots more of these little collage quilts....figured it was about time I started using some of that box of fabric and bits of vintage ......
Hope everyone had a GREAT Mother's Day.....I could not have asked for a BETTER one! The weather was perfect.....spent the day at home working on the quilt...doing some work outside along side of Andy...(getting the garden plot ready to go)..tending to my flowers...and visiting with Tony...Dawn...and Ty. I got a knife that I've been wanting for my art...it's a husky heavy-duty xacto type knife only bigger and stronger...and a really cool cactus that I'm going to re-pot today.....Andy is home.. ..we are going to Fairplay to a place called "Bluebird Iris Farm"...I want to take photos and check out all the different speices of Iris...plus have a picnic.
Thank-you so much to everyone who left such sweet comments about my Dad's memorial visit...I love him so much..... he makes me so proud...he has always been...and still is...such a GREAT Dad....I am so very fortunate to still have him in my Life...

The quilt is so neat. I really like it. Sounds like you had a great day and got some neat goodies.

I enjoyed reading about your day and seeing what you fabricated out of pieces of material. Very cool.

this is beautiful Vicci!! I am also glad you had such a nice Mother's Day.
I read your post about the Memorial visit - I was struck by the photo of your dad walking out of it...upright and in full charge at 91! How amazing is that? What a special relationship you have with him.
I am way behind on commenting but know I read and look at everything.
Love and hugs,
Lisa

Beautiful...geeps, if I was to do a quilt called the 'secret' it would have not been so pretty...probably all dark & full of old rickety steps & spiders & such....lol.
You have a beautiful eye Vicci!
To think you did that in a week-end...you are a creativity machine!

OMG, Vicci...this is absolutely breath-taking! I saw it posted to the Group Files for the swap, but that picture just didn't do it justice. The colors and the composition in this are stunning! Your swap partner will be thrilled with this piece!!
