Marilyn Belford’s latest quilt is a likeness of contributor Rundy. Rundy often helps her with computer and handyman related problems, so she was quite familiar with his habits and features, though she did work from a photograph to make the quilt. If, like me, you are wondering what that plant is in the background, wonder no longer. It is entirely a figment of Marilyn’s imagination. In the original photo, Rundy is actually standing in a doorway. (Scroll down to see the original photo.) Even clicking on the image to see the detail, I bet you will find it as incredible as I did that the entire portrait is done with fabric and thread.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
