The fabric used for the 'frame' is antique gold Fairy Frost from Michael Miller and has a sheen which resembles gilt. The quilt combines both hand and machine quilting, and has tiny silk rosebuds stitched in the centre of each floral border block. When I am designing, I keep two quotes from Albert Einstein in mind. One is: "simplify, simplify, simplify,..." and the other: "make everything as simple as possible, but no simpler."
"Simply Stated:..." is a derivative of my Anticipation quilt and as copyright holder of that design, I am the only one able to make such a derivative. More on that later. In the meantime, mark your calendars for the dates of the show: September 12 - October 12th, at the Kier Gallery on Victoria Row in Charlottetown, PEI.
