L. A. Is Not The Only Jungle
This is a quilt that has been through the childhood, growing up, wars. The last time I saw it, it was still in good shape. So I guess I did know in 1992 to make them very strong. I have no idea how many times this quilt has seen the washer and dryer in the last fourteen years.
Remember the 1989 time frame. What I was seeing around me were sweatshirts turned into cardigans with wonder under appliques. So, I turned what I saw into quilt blocks. Then I was lucky enough to find enough of my shirt fabric in a remainders shop in Camden, New Jersey to use the black on ivory jungle foliage to complete the quilt.
