Red and White Quilt With Stuffed Work



This small quilt is loaded with dense quilting and puffy stuffed work. I'd love to know the story behind this quilt. Do the shapes represent something or are they abstract? Was she thinking about Hawaiian quilts? Wouldn't she love to see it in this exhibit!

Thank you Karen, I am really enjoying your posts about these Red And White beauties...yes this one does look Hawaiian, but also somewhat alien, or ancient cave quilt, if such a thing excised!

l heard someone say that its was the middle of a much larger quilt. Don't know if this is true or not. But its a beautiful piece as it is. Thanks for sharing your photos.
