In The Cross-Country Quilters, renowned quilt artist and historian Grace Daniels takes her first steps toward overcoming “quilter’s block” in a photo transfer workshop. She makes a small wall hanging as a birthday gift for her fellow Cross-Country Quilter Vinnie; for my version, I used a photo of my youngest son, Michael. The pattern for “Grace’s Gift” appears in my second pattern book, Return to Elm Creek (C&T Publishing, 2004).
Machine pieced by Jennifer Chiaverini, machine quilted by Sue Vollbrecht, 2003. The “Zachary’s Zoo” fabrics used for this quilt were generously donated by Red Rooster Fabrics.
