Anna Williams inspired


Someone asked for a larger photo of the quilt top I recently started hand-quilting. It's inspired by one made by Anna Williams. I saw the photo in a Nancy Crow book, can't remember which one. I counted something like 80 different fabrics in Anna's. I don't know how many are in mine. My rule in choosing the fabrics was that they had to be scraps. It's 42 x 55".

Another great quilt. love the spontaneity, colors, half square triangles, all of it.
Is your scrap pile any smaller? You know they breed faster and you can sew. Bonnie

it's gorgeous!!!! love it and I can totally see the inspiration from Anna's quilt. It's in the book "Nancy Crow" by Nancy Crow - it's the second big hardback book she wrote.
