I was feeling a bit down - had just seen my passport photos - even hardened criminals would run a mile if they saw me coming...sigh.  But then I came home to the most delightful email from Mary - she sent me photos of her version of my quilt "Freewheeling" which was in an AP&Q some time back.  This is part of what she wrote:

" I changed it by adding a border by Moda Fabrics from the Origins collection.  I loved that black!  I made my pinwheels red.  I made it for my sister-in-law’s niece who is legally blind and can only see red, white and black.  It was her Christmas present.  That young lady is the young blond in the picture.  I am the lady with the dark hair.  I showed the back of the quilt which was made from Mark Lipinski’s Krakow collection because it was white, black and  red.  I hope you enjoy the photos and it was a lot of fun making  this quilt.  I probably will make this quilt again.   I hope I will  see more of your patterns in future issues of AP&Q."

Here are her photos - doesn't her version look great? Thank you so much Mary for sharing!!!


  1. Passport photos- I also think 'no thank you!' but we need them to get outta here.
    Quilt looks wonderful.

  2. What a lovely quilt, I love the effect. Show me a passport where the owner of said passport looks non criminal. I went back and got second photos the first was so horrendous. cheers

  3. Quilt looks lovely Kate - what issue of AP & Q? I have a friend who wants to make a black/white/red quilt.

  4. I hate having my photo taken at the best of times, but PP photos are shocking...no one ever looks good in them.
    Love the quilt, stunning in B,W& Red
