Amber’s Home. Approximately 58” x 58”. Commercial cottons and batiks. Copyright 2010. Claire O’Connor.
I am making this for my oldest niece Amber. She lives in New Jersey and she’s 8 years old. Since we are both born under the sign of Cancer, and since I love home so much, I imagine she will as well. (Or is it just projection?) Hence the house in the center and the log cabins blocks around the perimeter – with a few nine-patches thrown in for good measure.
Now on to 6-year-old Cassidy’s quilt (Amber’s sister) – I plan to finish all the tops, then get into a groove and do all the quilting at one time. Here is 3-year-old Kristina’s quilt (Cassidy and Amber’s sister).
