Twenty-one years ago, following my heart bypass surgery, I received tons of get-well cards. One envelope contained these amazing original watercolor cartoons by my dear quilting friend Nancy Brown, from Oakland, California. They lifted my spirits then, and still make me laugh all these many years later. I know you will get a kick at seeing these. Nancy is known for her amazing animal portrait quilts—appliquéd and quilted by hand—and they all have amazing expressions and personality. Many of them feature my hand-dyed fabrics, which always makes me happy. Be sure to leave a comment…I know Nancy will be watching. And…keep an eye out for next week. I’m going to feature some of Nancy’s quilts that are in my collection. May we all mend our broken hearts and share in the goodness of love that always surrounds us… if we will just keep our eyes open.
